"Dope Material Magazine"

Who said Ponomo doesn’t have anyone else to interview???????? If that’s what you thought , I guess you were wrong! I’m still going at it….owwwwwww! Lol.

This time I caught up with a dope up and coming singer! We had a pretty good sit down! Check out what we talked about…..


*Hey what’s up? How you feeling today?*

What’s up? I’m always great….even better wit’ chedda.

*Lol, I like that!*

*Tell the world who you are and where you rep!*

I am the one and only OnnaDi. I get so much love everywhere, i’m international. It wouldn’t be right to rep only one place, I love all my supporters.

*Dope*

*Singer is not the only hat you wear. What are some of the other things that you’re involved in?*

OnnaDi has a huge heart. I love to volunteer, from the youth, in between to the elderly. I donate my time whenever possible.
Whether it be a shoulder to cry on or representing seniors who apply for Medicaid, I enjoy giving back. But first and foremost I am a songwriter, without the songwriting….I have nothing to sing :-). Oh and I might as well throw in the acting and modeling…way on the side LOL.

*That’s great. More people coming up should have that attitude! If we had more of that, the world would be a better place!*

*You have a pretty strong resume! How has your journey been through all of this?*

An eventful ass ride! Always learning and growing, ready for what life has to offer. My grandma always said anything worth having doesn’t come easy. I love my career and I work extremely hard at it, this Journey is a dream come true!

*Well said…..very well said!*

*What inspired you to do everything that you’re doing?*

Well growing up the only child makes you have a huge imagination. I was always the one in the mirror playing dress-up playing with my Barbie dolls performing for myself which led to me just wanting to entertain. My mother and family tell me stories of me pulling out a crate as if that were my stage and putting on a show before I could even speak words. I came out of the womb doing what I do :-)!

*Thats what’s up! I’m a only child myself so I know a lot about imagination. I think about some of the things that I did as a result of imagination and I just laugh. Lol. That imagination did get me to this music and magazine stuff and I thank God for that.*

*Who are some of your role models in the music and entertainment industry?*

I admire all those who paved the way for me and all of today’s entertainers not just from America but all over the globe.

*Whats your routine when your about to step in the booth and when your about to step on stage?*

I’m a spiritual person, so I’m always giving thanks to the creator. Every moment I grace the stage, I always throw up a prayer. I own a studio, i’ma producer and engineer, so I live in the studio, I’m always in the booth, no preparation needed just great vibes!

*Good stuff! I always like to meet a fellow Christian! God bless!*

*Whats your advice for the person trying to get into the music and entertainment industries?*

Stay true to yourself and follow your dreams, cliché but real. Always stay consistent and practice practice practice. Come in knowing that it is a business bottom line, and learn as much as you can.

*Great advice. You couldn’t have said that any better!*

*Whats your take on the state of music and of entertainment as a whole?*

We are all transitioning, adjusting and adapting to change, this is how I see the state of entertainment. Music as a whole today, I feel it’s just adjusting and adapting to the change of distribution and media.

*So what projects do you have out right now and what can we expect in the near future?*

Well my newest singles are titled “Waist Down”, “Never 2 Far” & “Harder”. They are all Blockdown Productions super creations all written and arranged by “The One And Only OnnaDi” lol. I love my team small but effective and all in house. My next project single/videos/album will debut just in time for the holiday season. Keep your ears and eyes open :-o

*I will defiantly be on the lookout!*
