I recently met up with some of the young artists from Vision Music Records and their manager Chris Samuels. Often, people don’t really know much about the face behind the artist. One of these artists is SillyBoi. Here is a little snippet into his life, dreams and career: –
Which artists do you admire and look up to and who would you personally like to work with if you were granted the opportunity? The artist/s I look up to and admire are J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem. I would love to work with J Cole. What is the importance of connecting with other artists? The importance of connecting with other artists is to see at what level you are and what advice you can get from that specific artist. When you hear a new song that you can relate to, does it inspire you to get busy writing? Hearing a new song that I can relate to, always inspires me to write a new song. If you had a chance to perform somewhere, where would that be? I’d love to perform at the SAMA’s one day. Do you sometimes get lost in your music? I don’t get lost in my music at all – ‘lol’. What does it mean to you, to be an artist? Being an artist means more then anything to me, because now, I have the power to inspire the next person through my music or my brand. What is your favourite food? My favorite food is home-made Pasta. Do you have a hobby other then music? Yes – I play indoor volleyball. When did you first realize you want to go into the music industry? In my Matric year I realized I wanted to go into the music industry.
