Would you say being a creative has helped you shape your career as a musician, so far?
"Yeah definitely, because I feel like I do a lot of things differently. As I am writing a song, I’m thinking about the video already. I’m thinking about the album art. I’m thinking about what I’m wearing in the video, you know. I’m thinking about stage performance. Everything. So being a creative definitely has shaped my music".
So what other talents do you have?
"I feel like daily I keep discovering myself. So tomorrow I don’t know...I’ll probably be a makeup artist".
Would you ever go into acting?
"Oh yeah! I mean, I’ve tried it twice now. I feel like it’s interesting. I want to do more".
So what kind of actor do you think you’ll be?
"Just give me a Ramsey Noah role where I get to kiss all the girls...Let me be that Emeka Ike guy, you know, spitting them bars to get the girls".
How would you describe your style?
"Afrocentric. It’s pure African. I love to represent so I wear Adire. And I think everybody knows that already. I wear 100% Adire. And I feel like it’s beautiful, it makes me unique and that’s why I like it".
