Below are a few of the questions we asked this very talent artiste.

1. Who or what influenced your career choice?
My career choice was influenced by my father and also the natural ability to communicate with music.

2. Did you get formal training?
No I did not get any formal training, I got my talent from above to sing my heart out and hope my music will touch someone.

3. Do you write your own music?
Yes I do.


4. If yes, where do you get your lyrical ideas to write?
My lyrical ideas arrive from personal experiences within the music world,to every day living, to writing in the third person(speaking on topics that don't necessarily affect me or anyone around me,but does apply to people across the globe).

5. Who is your mentor?
My mentor first and foremost is my dad, also a few artists doing great work(Jahcure,Busy Signal and Agent Sasco).

6. Which of your songs do you love the most?
I can't really say; as all my songs I consider my brainchild ... I really like 'Fanz Own' because it is directed towards the fanz and radio DJ's helping to push what I am doing along, helping to further my musical career.

7. What is your worst experience since becoming an artist?
My worst expeirence is seeing people I used to class as 'friends' change into people I almost can't recognize, also dreamweavers.

8. Your best experience?
Aahh! Going to Germany (Berlin, Yaam)in 2011 as a new artist and recieving the reception of an established artist, that was a great feeling and realisation that what I am doing is working.

9. What would you change about
the industry today?

I would really like to hear more music with substance, yes the temporary music is good for a buzz but we still need the bass and the route of the music to be substantial.

10. What advice would you give to young upcoming artists?
I would advise them to always be true to their calling and give 110% when they step towards their goal, also to do music with substance that can last and to keep it clean.

To coin a phrase: Mind blowing, Uplifting, Inspiring and still current :)

12. What image does your music portray?
My music portrays a positive message at all times, even when it is directed at females, with no profanity.

13. What are your career goals?
My career goals are to bring my music to the four(4) corners of the earth if possible,and to try and build a platform for those following in my footstep to launch from. Make Reggae music more main stream.

14. How would you define the word success?
Success for me would be to achieve question 13, with the additional luxury of providing for my family through music.

15. How do you market yourself?
I market myself through the internet, live gigs, and by linking and liaising with others in the industry from different parts of the world, and also through my management team where a lot of my P.A. work is done.
