“ The first song I made was a liar one, ‘ Hello Mummy. ’ It was principally a fictional andnon-fictional story about myself, and that was before I started exploring other aspects of music, including the highlife kidney. What I was trying to do with my brand was like a ground between our ancestral sound and the ultramodern sound. It’s important like a mashup. ”
The artist stated that one of his favourite songs, “ Hello Mummy ”, was a discussion between mama and child “ It was more like a letter to my mama trying to explain immature vibrance. There’s a particular way all parents see impersonators. I come from a religious background, there’s this perception they’ve about all impersonators. I was writing to tell her and explain the reason I’m doing music. I’m not going amiss because I’m following my dreams. ”
