How did you come by your stage name?

K Buzz is the name, was known as Kristi B back when I used to do Gospel music.

I started music in 2006/7 but started off doing gospel music and was known as Kristi B back then. I’ve always been into music from an early age from the church choir to listening to Nas, Tupac, and Biggie through my old cassette player lol

After a while of being on Facebook, they no longer allowed users to have a surname with one letter so I was forced to change it. I decided to change it to Buzz. But in 2011 I stopped the music game to focus on uni and looking after my son.

In December 2018 on my visit to Nigeria for my holiday, I had a dream which is usual for me to dream about music and woke up to record and write down the melodies and lyrics, etc. Later to play it to my cousin who said it was dope that we must head to a studio that day by force lol

Long story short I recorded my 1st song in years, it was my first time in a studio in over five years and it was at that moment I realized that me fighting my passion the God-given gift was taking more energy than needed so I decided to reroute than passion and energy into making music.

When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?

I started music in 2006/7 but started off doing gospel music and was known as Kristi B back then. I’ve always been into music from an early age from the church choir to listening to Nas, Tupac, and Biggie through my old cassette player lol

To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?

To Fela Kuti as he’s a big inspiration for me and my music. Micheal Jackson as I listened to his music all through my childhood and learned how he moved and how he loved to make music, he was so precise with sounds and was a perfectionist in every way.

When I look at my style in raps ill have to give it to those I listened to the most from Jay Z, 2Pac, Biggie, Big Pun and Nas, they all are my biggest influences and they must be given credit where due.

On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?

Concepts and song ideas were materialized through the current issues and trending news in society and personal revelations as well as experiences. These are all the ways in which I come up with concepts to my music.

What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?

Staying motivated – It’s definitely a great challenge as I feel there is always more work than can be done and always room for improvement. Also having enough time, energy and drive to continue to be creative is something that I sometimes struggle with but I always allow myself for breaks and sleep which I set aside from the hard work with music. The same for answering emails, booking tours, scheduling, and promoting

Not getting discouraged – The most discouraging part of being an artist is that the art can be quiet subjective at times. You could write a great song, but there would still be a percentage of people who wouldn’t like it. It’s so funny because they may not even have a reason for not liking it. No matter how thick my skin may be, rejection isn’t always an easy pill to swallow.

Hard Work – They say that hard work is the first stepping stone to success. The musicians must work hard to educate themselves about music-making and enjoy music. Going into music must not be considered as an escape from work from day jobs.

Instead, it must be the only work. It’s not so easy to compose music. It is more like becoming an entrepreneur, where one has to create his/her product, and then promote it to the people so that they get it.

Practice – Practice makes a man perfect. Successful musicians practice a lot, day and night. When one is into music totally, he/she cannot afford to stagnate because that would eventually culminate his/her musical career. The success of a musician lies in his daily practice.

Successful musicians make practicing a vital thing like breathing and eating. Passion for music is not enough to achieve a career in music, practicing every day is what helps one to grow and improvise in music. By practicing daily, a musician rises above others.

Patience And Not Giving Up – One of the most important qualities for me is to have a lot of patience. I cannot see myself being successful overnight, and especially in art like music. To skill in music takes time, and for that one needs to be patient. Every musician who is topping the charts today hasn’t become successful in a day.

They have been practicing and honing their talents for years and years and are still learning. The sign of a real musician is that they learn and improve themselves daily, bit by bit. They know that it is going to take years for them to become able to compete with the flood of musicians out there in the world hungry for success. The most important thing is that giving up early might lead to an end of the career. So, instead of waiting for a ‘big break,’ one must be persistent about it.

Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?

I believe in life there are people who are great at what they do and others who are good, but if the one who is great thinks they have it all and doesn’t practice the one who practices regularly and daily will soon become better. And as we all know how the saying goes practice makes perfect.

I truly believe I am getting into my comfort zone and groove of my music and I’m literally just getting better and better as fine wine. In the last 12 months, the progression can be seen.

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?

I would say follow your heart your desire and channel your energy and emotions into your music only then will you make pure music true and indigenous to only you.

This will then bring you to your true sounds and the true you as an artist. In other words, I’m saying don’t always follow trends and don’t copy other artists, be unique and be a rare gem in this industry that’s the only way to stand out. Let’s look at Burna Boy for example.
