It takes extra work for a woman to make it in our society – Rapper Mz Kiss

5 Min Read

What is music to you?

Music is an act of expression. I have always loved music growing up. I have always wanted to do music, but Dagrin inspired me to rap.

So, I’ll say music chose me. I’ve got the talent; it’s what I can do. I have been singing since I was three, not like real singing, but just singing around the house. As time went on, I became a chorister in church. I just have passion for singing. I remember those days when we used to watch the likes of 2Face, The Remedies, Jennifer Lopez; they all made me want to sing. I remember those days when I saw Beyonce on TV, and I said, ‘I want to be like this girl’.

When did you start the profession officially?

I would say 2012 because that was the year I had my first video, but I started recording in 2010.

Would you say it is a challenging career being a woman?

To be honest, I would say it takes extra work and determination for a woman in our society to reach her goals. But we are not doing badly, are we?

Why music and not a white collar job after graduation?

I had to follow my heart. Music gives me fulfilment.

You started out in 2010; how would you describe the journey so far?

Amazing! But very challenging! You have got to really love this job to do it.

You have been nominated for awards; how do you feel about them?

I won a couple of awards, but that’s not my focus. For me, the best way I can be rewarded is for my music to spread globally, touch lives and wake up some sleeping dreams.

How would you describe your style?

Hiphop/Afro Pop. Although I’m very versatile, I’m a rapper, a Yoruba rapper specifically. I do hip-hop and R ‘n’ B, but I can also do fuji, reggae and apala. But I’m a hip-hop and R ‘n’ B artiste. If I have to do a different genre of music, I’ll do it comfortably.

How do you feel when people compare you to Olamide?

Olamide is a great artiste. I listened to him a lot. I believe people just had to express how they felt that period of time, but now they understand my sound and the difference.

Did you have any encounter with the late Dagrin who, according to you, inspired you?

Yes! Just once over the phone, he gave some encouraging words. But we never met.

What do you mean by not being satisfied with where you are, considering all the hype?

I feel like I haven’t even started. There is a bigger picture. There are millions of people all over the world that haven’t heard my music. There is more to do than I have done.

What would make you give up on your musical career?

Absolutely nothing!

How long does it take to build up a song?

Well, that depends on how the inspiration comes and the kind of music. Cautious music takes a little time because I have to pick every line carefully.

When do you plan to walk down the aisle?

Keep your fingers crossed.

What is fashion to you?

I like to keep it simple. I’m not the dress–to-kill kind of person. I wear what I’m comfortable in as you can see. I’m not the very girly kind of person. I don’t do gowns, only occasionally or when I have to. I’m more of a jeans and top kind of person.
