A CONVERSATION WITH SIKI:
dareraphael: So happy you could do this with us. Thanks for making out the time. So, how long would you say you’ve been an artiste for?
Siki: I’ve been an artiste for 3 years now
dareraphael: Who or what inspired you to be an artiste?
Siki: I didn’t really take music seriously but after the release of my first song and how it was widely accepted in school, I got inspired to do more. Ric Hassani and my mom inspire me to do music and be a better artist
dareraphael: Moms are really the best! Do you happen to write your own songs or play any instruments?
Siki: Yes, I do. I write all my songs and I also play the guitar
dareraphael: Seems like you’re a Jack of all trades! What exactly would you say is the origin of “Ride or Die?” What’s the inspiration behind the song?
Siki: So a lot of my songs are inspired by the things happening around. They’re not really self experienced but are created from things I hear and others life experiences. “Ride or Die” is just a story of a guy assuring the girl he loves to stay with him
dareraphael: Nice!, who doesn’t love a good origin story. What plans do you have at the moment? Are there any EPs or LPs we should be expecting?
Siki: I’ve a full EP being worked on. It’s also done. I also have a video for “Ride or Die”
dareraphael: Lovely stuff. Can’t wait to see the video! Finally, what’s the purpose of your music? What do you want people to feel when listening to your songs?
Siki: Most of the music I write is love related and inspiring too. My music should make people feel good and inspired, that they can achieve whatever they put their mind on doing. I expect them to be captivated by my voice and in the process get the messaged being passed.
dareraphael: Siki, thanks again for your time. We’ll definitely be watching your rise to stardom.
