Well, I heard of Sunny Ade, and looks as if his music is gonna be big on a global level, because I was in London the other day and some people asked me to review the album.
You always will be singing a song or humming a line or a melody.
I think I have a more wider scope for music, I have more taste for music.
Drugs have played no significant factor in my life.
But now I'm getting that spiritual motivation to visit Africa.
But when you have to deal with notes, and to be able to make a full definition of what a sound is - if you are not around that environment, then you'll find you lose that feel, that momentum, you lose all that.
Certain rhythms just have certain moods.
The bottom line is that Dennis Brown is alive and well, and he's got two lungs and they're kicking and I'm still spitting out them notes.
Well, until this very day, I'm still learning.
Certain songs by hearing the rhythm, it tells you that is either a love song or you might be heartbroken or the songs give you the vibes and you just know that certain songs are militant that you have to write.
Every day you learn something new.
Sometimes that is why you might even stay in the bathroom for even half an hour, making that water running all over, just singing.
You can't find the sound if you just love sleep.
You see, that is it with music, you never stop learning.
No man is an island. No man stands alone.
I wasn't thinking of competing with any artists as such, I was more thinking of being among them, and sharing thoughts with them; like sharing views, ideas, etc.
