What was your life like when you first discovered your passion for music? 

It's funny tho,I was in junior high school and I had some group of friends ya know sometimes high school class singing with drums been beat on the tables and does who can sing and Rap perform...

I had a strong sense and passion for rapping and I was learning it at that time then I was given the directions by a friend named ayo aka ayson pretty much could say he taught me how to put some lines together coz I wasn't familiar with the outside world or music style...but ever since I knew how to control my pen and deliver my thoughts things have never been the same but for the good of my life and my family.
How did you come up with your unique sound and lyrics?
Just like I said it was due to the school class mini performance but I could say I was influenced by some of our local rappers like Olamide,lil kesh I tried singing like them but didn't work coz my accent was quite different and I couldn't speak much of the local language since it was been influenced locally ..so I switched to international songs,I started listening to nasty c from south Africa but wasn't enough for me then I found Eminem he changed my view of music,learnt alot of things from his music since our stories are pretty much the same ....
So I had to find my own path I started writing and making my own sound till today dodkray music 🥰,tho you could feel the impact of Eminem on how I write my songs sometimes NF.
