Back home in Africa…
the Ivory Coast west Africa at the age of 15 my mum was a folk singer. What inspires me is everyday life story. The war in my country got me thinking about the way life can be taking, so Live Everyday Like It is Your Last. Make love not war.
You Get On My Nerves…
has been inspired by my wife. She’s always using that phrase every time she gets mad. Sometimes it’s so funny and I told her here we go again you gone say :”You Get On My Nerves.”
My new album “In The Making” has 10 songs. The vibe on this album is to make people wake up to the reality that life is to be happy, stay away from stress, live it to the fullest, never let haters bring you down, be yourself, be in harmony with peace where there is peace there is love and GOD IS LOVE.
My plan of marketing is getting a team and using the social media, and gigging.
Right now I am between Los Angeles and Las Vegas…
The music scene is great with the all sunset strip thing. I love to spend time with my wife and kids cooking.
Music business… I think the music business is great.
I think the social media is great, great platform for the upcoming artist. Gain new fans and promoting can be a challenge.
Singles vs Albums…
It’s a great way to test your fans a single first and after the album. The single will prepare your fans for the album.
I would love to have 5 minutes…
with P Diddy. Diddy inspire me a lot for the passion he have for music and the determination for keep on going, and essence of business.
Do you find that there is to much emphasis on being current and trendy…
I think change is great and you have to go with the flow. but stay real to your yourself. Rocking with the new trend but be unique.
I am not afraid of change.
My personal definition of success is…
living your dream. By living your dream you fulfill your purpose in life. How to achieved it never give up if you failed get up and keep on knocking till door are opened.
My over all goal for my life & career…
is family joy and being happy and reach million of people with music
