"Stream Africa"

Africa is the hub for so many talented young artists. Here is our interview with upcoming artist and singer

MT MOTHERLAND BOY.
1.How old where you when you first moved to the US?

I was 18 when I moved to the US, but I had been here before, several times for summer Trips.
2.Being from Mali (Africa). How was it like for you growing up in the US?

When I first came here it was really different, the way society operates. I had a full time job while being a student. It was hard and very time consuming but I enjoyed being able to provide for myself while getting an education. That was one of the biggest difference for me because in Africa you are ever a student or you are in the work force, there’s no opportunity to do both.
3.When was the last time you were home (Mali)?

I was there in 2011
4.When did you start developing your passion for music?

It started when I was around 11 or 12 years old, I formed a rap Group with 3 of my childhood friends (the Nesby Brothers), we recorded a few songs and performed at our school parties and functions in Bamako (Mali).
5.Who is your favorite musician of all time?

2 Pac hands down!
6.You won the 2013 Atlanta Underground Music Award for African Artist of the Year. How was it like for you winning the Award?

The most excited moment of my music career and my biggest achievement so far. It’s the same year I released my first official mixtape “Coming to America” (hosted by DJ Aone) and launched my independent Label “Motherland Music”, so it felt like a confirmation that I am on the right track.
7.When will you be releasing your next Mix tape?

“Coming to America” Volume 2 will be out last quarter of 2014, I will announce the exact date soon.
8.What will you like to say to all your fans out there?

First I would like to say THANK YOU for supporting my music and my movement, I am nothing as an artist without my fans. I also want them to know that we are just warming up here at Motherland Music and if you enjoyed the first project, I guarantee that you are going to absolutely love my new Mixtape. I am passionate about my craft and I put my whole being in my music to give you all a piece of me, all for Free. Keep supporting, keep being positive, keep faith in me. One Love to all my fans Worldwide, Also don’t hesitate to contact me on social media send me a message, tag me, leave a comment interact with me I always answer and talk to everybody. This is all for You.

Thank you,

Maimouna O. Gbor - Stream Africa Mag
