Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
I was born in Zimbabwe and migrated to the UK when I was 12. Growing with a single parent, life was challenging. Music was one of the things that comforted my journey through-out life.
Where are you from?
I am from Zimbabwe current residing in north London
When did you start music?
I started music when I was 12 years old
How did you get into music?
I got into music from when I was roughly around 11. What got me deep into making music was the storyline telling with certain artists. It relates to me personally. This made me try out and experiment with music, along the way I started enjoying music with rich beats.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
There are many feats, but this might be funny but couple months ago I managed to get my drivers licence. This personally for me was a big milestone.
Are you currently signed or independent?
Currently I have my own music label called Dopeboy music, just me and several friends that are working on this project. Technically I am currently independent.
Who inspires you the most musically?
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
Truly I want the individual to feel motivated and pumped when they listen and take-away from my music. For example, this can be e.g. the gym where you are pumped to exercise.
Any new music coming soon?
New music coming this week, with a special feature
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
My greatest achievement in music was last year when I released my first mixtape. This was a feat that I thought I would not achieve but I managed to do it.
Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?
In the beginning I have produced my own music, but since for the last two years I have been working with Patrick from Hot Money Studios. His work is remarkable, and all my projects have been with him since.
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
I always want to work with Dappy from N-Dubz.
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is it coming out? What is it about?
I’m releasing my first single from my up coming EP. It’s coming out on the 14th of August I’m really excited about this one. It’s about being myself and the goals and vision I will achieve.
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
I wake up 7AM every day and visualise the goals I have to achieve for the day. Then at 8AM I head over to the gym to exercise to feel physically and mentally fit/ healthy. After that if I have university on the certain days, I head over to university to attend classes. If I don’t have university, I usually make music and socialise with friends to talk about business ideas and how to grow fundamentally.
Anything else you want the audience to known about you?
Well not in particular. Anything specific I can answer.
