As ClubExcellence, we’ve dedicated our time to ask random questions to our local artists as a way to help them market their brand during this lockdown period. Here, we have an artist by the name Mill Twist who has been making trends through his single “Koolest Kidd”and his recent collaboration with Mufflon titled “Ndanyaya”.Let’s have a fun time with the artist and hear what he has to say about himself.
Q1. What first got you into music?
A. I discovered i have a musical talent when I was 14 years old and I decided to try and explore it. It really worked out as I got my first girlfriend through my musical skills, that’s when I fully committed to do music.
Q2. Who inspired you to make music?
A. Lil Wayne
Q3. How would you describe the music that you typically create?
A. I create music that people can relate to, music that speaks to people’s souls.
Q4. What is your creative process like?
A. Uhm I usually get ideas when I’m doing house chores as I’ll be trying to freestyle though I can’t. Those bits I do I quickly jot them down and boom we got a hit. I’m also creative when I have a burning issue inside me be it being in love or a heartbreak.
Q5. What is the most useless talent you have?
A. I don’t really know about that one.
Q6. If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
A. Nasty C
Q7. What is one message you would give to your fans?
A. I love everybody who is behind my music. I do this for them and I love so much. I’ll keep serving them some good music.
Q8. Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
A. Absolutely. It depends on the last song that I was playing on my phone, that is the song that will be banging in my head.
Q9. What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
A. For me music comes second to school. I am currently a National Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management student. I believe in getting that certificate first and then rap later. That’s something I’ll advise fellow Byo artists to do.
Q10.Where have you performed?
A I’ve performed in a number of church events and at school (Byo Poly)
Q11. Who would you most like to collaborate with?
A Asaph, Fish F Ndaramu, M-kay, Yarris Hillz to mention a few.
Q12.Do you have any upcoming shows?
Q13. How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
A The internet is the place to be man, it’s the easiest way to be heard. You upload your song, share your link and boom your song is being played by someone in the States just in seconds.
Q14.What is your favourite song to perform?
A.I’d say Koolest Kidd.
Q15. Which famous musicians do you admire?
A. Nasty C, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Meek Mill, Tyga, Chris Brown, Rema, Mr Eazi, Davido, the list will never end
Q16.Which local artist you think should quit doing music?
A. I don’t want to be called a hater.
Q17.What is the best advice you’ve been given?
A. That i should believe in myself as an artist and that I should keep improving the quality of my music.
Q18.If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
A. It could be local airplay. It shouldn’t be a struggle for artists to get their music played on local radio stations. Another thing will be acknowledgement of the intellectual property of artists (music). Artists must be paid for performing on shows.
