To day on Hubs Music Artiste Focus, We will be speaking with a Lagos based artiste well known as Magnm!
Emily: Hello Magnm, Please introduce yourself…
Magnm: I am Magnm majestiq, a multi talented artist (rapper, singer, songwriter, graphic artist and video editor). born January 08 as Hassan Ayodeji Mojeed. I obtained a Btech in Biological sciences from the federal university of technology Minna and presently in Lagos state University for my postgraduate study.
Emily: Wow! So what drew you to the music industry?
Magnm: Hobby, in the sense that i just find myself doing it anywhere anytime.
Emily: Who are you inspired by?
Magnm: truth be told, its “WHAT” i get inspired by, and that is everything around me including my heartbeat.
Emily: AWESOME!!! Please explain your creative process ?
Magnm: taking music as a hobby has really made me evolve over time. i have learn t by making music the easy or hard way. even when i cant afford an exquisite music producer/studio, i still try to bring out the best from the ones i can afford. Props to my personal producer ACEBORS. i just want to make good music of any genre so i find myself making more research and working hard
Emily: What’s an average day like for you?
Magnm: Being at the studio alone and catching up with my friends afterwards.
Emily: Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
Emily: Do you collaborate with others? What is that process?
Magnm: of course i do, formally, informal, legally or
Emily: Alright. Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans
Magnm: I interact with fans mostly through social media and i don’t see any comment or reaction as negative because those are things that come with this profession and inspire me to do more. also, no one is perfect, only God can judge
Emily: What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?
Magnm: waoh! i love this question. My favorite part of the profession is the process of making a song, from the beat making to recording, mixing and mastering. its an evolution the listeners don’t get to understand. And that is least favorite.
Emily: Cool, have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
Magnm: yes, yes, yes. Almost all the time coz fans are unpredictable.
Emily: Okay, tell me about your favorite performance venues
Magnm: My best performance for now is always at The Gasline annual street carnival which comes up every 1st Saturday of January and i get to thrill my home based fans.
Emily: So what advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Magnm: My advice to someone who wants to walk in my footsteps is “not to walk in my footsteps” coz our feet aren’t the same and we move at different paces.
Emily: Just be yourself!!! that’s what Magnm Majestic have for us to on Hubs Music Artiste Focus. Listen to Magnn Majestiq ‘PRETTY GYELZ’ on Hubs Music and drop your comments.
Cheers guys! see you next week on Hubs Music Artiste Focus.
