What inspired you to do opera?
When growing up, there was not much to do where I was staying, while studying further, until I joined clap and tap music from our local area where I was residing by then. Choral music was not even my favorite in that time. That was like that until I went to the University and decided to join the institution choral choir. This is then where everything began. Fell more in love with this genre. Had my fair take as a chorister, assistant conductor, solo lead singer and so on.
With new work for survival reasons, that’s where I got noticed and that’s then where I also re-discovered the new me in classical music.
How can you describe your style?
Many still mistaken this to be opera music, in which there is huge different in what I sing and opera. What I do is simply provide classical music, where its in more of a way of singing pop music in a classical manner also referred to as “classical Cross-over”.
What is the process of producing a single song?
Differs with every composer. Some start by lyrics, while some start by a beat. With me, its both. Most of the songs I composed are real life steered as in its based something that happened and or something that touched me.
Chorus part of the songs comes first then the rest will follow. Sometime, I can start a new song by just playing with the keys. At some point, a song can even start while im just taking a walk, then will try to record it using a phone so that I don’t forget the tune and or the lyrics which started the song.
Which other musicians inspires your craft?
Andrea Bocelli; I’m so inspired by his work, achievement and the history behind his making. His work and success drives to seeing the future of my work. Yet again, we have Il Divo, one of the best 4 tenors to bring about and or present crossover music in a style that is amazing.
And lastly, though not on the genre as I am, `Michael Bolton, love his lyrics and the way he presents them.
Where do you see the brand 5 years from now?
I used to tell people that there is a different between being an entertainer and an artist, and the different is that as an entertainer, your focus becomes money and that entertainers normally disappears within a few period of years, they become famous this year, next year you hear nothing about them, vanished.
Then with an artist, its all in the name, its all about branding, its much focused on sustainability and putting a mark. Money is needed though, but an artist’s focus is much based on giving the best and leaving the customer, fans and audience with an wow expression.
Thus, this the route our company is focusing on taking. To be well known on national and international level. Well established. It is our wish to own our own musicians as in instrumentalists than hiring them per event. Thus, in short to provide job opportunity for other musicians and other needed crew for the company at hand.
“Whatever you are, be a good one”
