CHE-V is a young lady who I had the privilege to watch at Camphill Village’s 50th celebration. Here is a little look into what Che-V believes regarding her career and dreams for the future –
Which artists do you admire and look up to and who would you personally like to work with if you were granted the opportunity? Artists I look up to are international superstars such as Eve, Lisa ‘left eye’ Lopes, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj to name a few. I would love to work with Nicki Minaj because she is the biggest female rapper at this time and also Lil Wayne to see how he works his magic. What is the importance of connecting with other artists? It is vital to connect with other artists who are as serious about music as you are – to help each other and guide each other and its a great thing to have someone who knows exactly what you are going through at times. When you hear a new song that you can relate to, does it inspire you to get busy writing? I am always busy writing, because I am mostly motivated by situations. If I feel a certain type of way then I will write about it, but there are certain times when songs create emotions that I am already busy writing about, so it then just helps me a little more with my writing and that is fabulous. If you had a chance to perform somewhere, where would that be? The Superbowl halftime show is something I would LOVE to do. You know you have made it big time when you perform there, because it’s a stage for only the best of the best. Do you sometimes get lost in your music? Yes, I always get lost in my music, because it stirs such big memories for me – I mostly write about my life, so when I listen to one of them, I feel all the emotions I had when the song was created, so I either end up with tears or a very big smile. What does it mean to you, to be an artist? Being an artist means working hard on your dream, so that it can one day inspire those who have seen you as a role model to also follow theirs. It means creating art that can uplift and motivate people to better their circumstances.What is your favourite food? My favourite food is fast food… because its fast. I don’t like being hungry. I am also a fan of raw veggies ( onions, split peas, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, etc. Do you have a hobby other then music? I do not have any other hobbies, music is my career and my hobby.When did you first realize you want to go into the music industry? When I started at VMR I became serious about music. I quit my job and went into it full time and haven’t been happier since.
