Eastern Mirror: What is/are the themes that you cover? What is your style of performing?

Presently I do motivational rap songs, Gospel rap songs and sometimes love songs.

There’s no particular style at all except rapping.

Eastern Mirror: If you could perform anywhere other than your home state, where would that be and why?

 Other than my home state, I would like to perform in states like Mizoram, Maharashtra, Bangalore and Meghalaya because I would say there are countable legendary rappers from there like G’nie, Khusi Bloodz, Meba Ofilia, MC Stan, Emiway , Divine, Brodha V and they are far more advanced compared to our state Nagaland.

Eastern Mirror: Who are the artistes from the state that you look upto and would like to collaborate with?

In the future if I get a chance to collaborate with any artist from Nagaland I would love to collaborate with Alobo Naga, Moko Koza, Z-World, Sunep Lemtur, and Big Dane because their music inspires me a lot.

Eastern Mirror: How supportive are your family with the kind of music that you do? If it wasn’t music what would you be doing?

My Family have been very supportive in anything that I do whether in music or in any other activity.

If it wasn’t for music, I think I could be into business.

I also own an online shoe store to support my music career @the_shoe_rack_nagaland (Instagram)

I can rap in any type of beat irrespective of language like English, Nagamese, Hindi or my mother tongue which I think most performers can’t do.
