Q. What genre of music do you do?
A. HipHop & RnB

Q. You managed to release ’Thirst For Success’’ last year, what was the feedback from your fans?
A. People loved it; my mention went ‘ablaze’ and was getting calls. Had a couple of radio interviews, the response was actually bigger than i imagined it to be and people already want a sequel

Q. Why the name ‘’Thirst For Success’’ as the title of your Mixtape?
A. Thirst For Success because at the RedMicpoint in my life my passion was burning and burning fast and I felt like I had to be heard because I have a story to tell. A story about my struggle and to make it to the ‘limelight’ and get known so I can share my experience with the world.

Q. Are there any Ghanaian or African artists as a whole you would love to collaborate with? Who & why?
A. Kojo Antwi, grew up listening to him so it would be an honour to have him on one of my songs.  AKA, I think we have some things in common, musically and just for the hell of it I would like to know which one of us will out do the other.

Q. If you are asked to change one thing in the music/entertainment scene in Ghana, Nigeria or Africa as a whole, what would it be?
In Africa, not a change necessarily but I think the music industry’s structure should be put in place well so distribution becomes easy in order for African music to cross our bothers overseas.

A. Yeah, I’m currently working on my new Mixtape which will be titled “Dropped Off” and it features amazing artistes like J.Town, Ama Rae, C-Real, Stargo etc and has Nel Magnum And TrackZilla on the production. First single I will be dropping off is scheduled for May/June.
