3. Please explain your creative process.
Answer: I think, I imagine, then I write. Having instruments like the guitar or piano or instrumentation helps the process.

Answer: Working out, making music, interacting with beautiful people, and basking in the ups and downs life throws at me.
5. Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
Answer: Fans and listeners bring hidden messages in my music that I am probably not aware of. Honestly, I try to make music simple and obvious, but different listeners relate to it in different ways. For instance, someone on Twitter pointed out that my song “Solider”, off my album “Boo of the Booless”, talks about a mother’s undying love and also the love of a solider for a nation.
6. Do you collaborate with others? What is that process?
Answer: I love collaborations. On my album, I have collaborations with Ric Hassani, Zoro, and M.I Abaga on my debut album and I am already working with other artistes. There is no set in stone process, sometimes I hear the existing music and add my flavour to it.

Answer: My favourite part is creating, bring music to life that never existed. It is surreal.
9. Your least favorite? Why?
Answer: I would not say planning is my least favourite, but it has to be the most hectic and worrisome part. Planning, executing and making sure it all goes well.
10. Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
Answer: Yes, I have dealt with performance anxiety but I always find a way to deliver and make it work. It is easy when you think of it as fun.
11. Tell me about your favorite performance venues.
Answer: My favourite venue, right now, is BLD by Play because there is an emotional attachment to it, I had the album launch concert for “Boo of the Booless” there on the 16th of February 2020. It was amazing, we have over 500 persons in attendance, performed songs from the album live with The Cavemen and it skyrocketed the reception for the album and more.
12. What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Answer: I would tell them to do all I have done and more. It is in all in God’s hands nonetheless work, like it is not.
