Black Gzas

Working with the East Africa rise up project has been the hallmark thus far in my music career. Being a member of Ukoo Flani Mau Mau is no mean feat-this is the leading Hip Hop movement in Kenya. I have also had the rare opportunity of working with renowned artist both on the local and international level. The song that I did with the East African Rise-up project-Do not give up-scooped the second position in the music festival dubbed G-Amini gate festival. Rising spirit connection album features artists from Kenya, Tanzania and France and we have a video out....... THAHB: When did you start singing? DADI: My music journey started when I was barely four years. In 2004 I hit the studio and I have never looked back again. THAHB: Who composes your music? DADI: I compose my own music. THAHB: What is the inspiration behind your music? DADI: Life is what inspires my music. I term my music as life altering conscious music or what some hip hop soldiers refer to as ghetto gospel. THAHB: Do you play any instrument? DADI: I have a liking for the piano and am good with the instrument. THAHB: Is it true that hip hop is dead in Kenya? DADI: Hip Hop aint dead unless death has a different meaning. How can Hip Hop be dead and I play that genre and who buried it? THAHB: Are you working on an album? DADI: Am in the studio working on my Album that will be out very soon. THAHB: Does your music pay your bills? DADI: I pay my bills through the proceeds I get from my music thanks to the people who buy my original songs. THAHB: What efforts as an artist have you taken to sensitize the youth inherent dangers associated with drug abuse? DADI: I have been traversing the country as a peer educator sensitizing the youths on the dangers of drug abuse. My music has the same message-that is my contribution in the fight against the vice that is puts the lives of many youths in peril. THAHB: Are you involved in any charitable organization and which are those? DADI: Right now am involved with different organizations like Haba na Haba, Sauti Sahara initiative, and East Africa rise up project. I have also worked with Hope Worldwide Kenya and Ray project Kenya. THAHB: What are your achievements in music so far?
