Read on as African Hype sits down with Naxy Girl to discuss her recent music releases, and what else we can expect from her in the future:

 

Thank you for your time. So given these unusual Covid-19 times, what does a typical day look like for you? How have you adjusted to these times?

Thank you for taking some time for me too.

For my part, I spend a lot of time with my family (kids and husband) as I feel bless to be able to do so in this dire time. On the other hand, I had the plan to release my third album this year and celebrate my 13 years in the music industry. So, the release had been delayed because of the Covid-19 but this has given me the opportunity to sing a song about the plague with my son, and this was great time for both of us.

Tell me about the music video for “Mujing”?

The song “Mujing” tells the story of a mother who gave birth to 100 children but 10 of whom have just died, and she is saddened because she barely had time to know them. The moral of this story is let’s take the time to get to know and love each other while we are still alive.

Your new single is incredibly beautiful! What’s the story behind “Murund”?

“Murund” means “friend”. The song is about a married woman who betrayed her two best friends:  her husband and her longtime friend. And where do they decide to do their dirty business, nowhere else that her marital bed. Betrayed and heartbroken, she drinks herself silly and she things about dying as her world is falling apart. Often this king of figure case arises but no one really speak about it. The video may be shocking for some but I want ring some bells about this matter.

Naxy Girl

What sets your music apart? What is unique, or at least uncommon?

I sing in Ruund a dialect of Lubumbashi (Republic Democratic of Congo) as I would like to promote my tribal culture in which I have grown up. I also would like to inspire others from other part of Africa to do the same. Our culture must be preserved, music is a way to do so. In some songs of my new album some other artists are featuring and they sing in their respective language to.

Who inspires you the most?

The person in my life who inspired me the most is “Mujing A Sar” a Ruund music icon. He was my mentor and he supported me a lot. Passed away not so long ago, I dedicated the song “Mujing” to him.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

I would like to collaborate with as many artists as possible, from all background. I have never really been able to travel munch, so, I have been listening to foreign music/songs in order to cruise around the world. I would love it if people who listen to my music could travel to.

How do you hope to enter the new year?

An invisible virus reminded me of how important it was to forge loose ties with my family and a few friends with whom I didn’t communicate much. I wish to enter this new year 2021 with the resolutions that I have already started to apply this year with an open heart:

– Be closer to mine by being more attentive

– Forgive those who offended me

– Asking forgiveness from those I have offended.

Lucky Ezy Creates a Massive Impact on the Wide Spectrum of Hip-Hop with “Cash On Me”

Lucky Ezy

A brilliant display of high-energy hip hop featuring amazing finesse by Lucky Ezy. The lyrical grandeurs and heavy melodies of the track “Cash On Me” are breathtaking.  It’s the trademark of the very talented American versatile artist.

We caught up with the rapper when he dropped his latest single and congratulated him on his success. He agreed to an interview quite instantly, and we spoke to him about different aspects related to his work and his personal life. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

Thank you for speaking with us at African Hype. What’s the first thing you hope new listeners feel when listening to your music?

When people first listen to my music, I want them to feel my emotions that I put into the song. I love making music that feels good for the soul. It is important to make music that resonates with the way you feel, or else it will not be good.

“Cash On Me” is captivating from the very start with its combination of hyped upbeats and catchy lyrics. What was the process like when you were blending this song together?

I went to the studio to record this song. I record the vocals over the beat and the engineer did his thing with the blending of the music to make sure it was the right tone.

Which release of yours has had a large impact on your life, whether the storyline was based on a life experience or the process of putting the song together helped you approach music production differently?

I think every song I make I try to make it the best. Even though I may not have the professional tools at times, I make the most of what I have. I do my research on the best mastering software and all to make sure my song sounds right.

You’ve released an array of new music this past year. What’s been your biggest accomplishment so far?

Just making music is a big accomplishment, because so many people doubt me, but I just do what I can and listen to less of what they have to say.

What inspired you to pursue music?

I stated off singing in the choir as a little boy. My mom made us go to choir ever Saturday and sometimes we sang on Sundays in front of the church. I had stage fright, so I was in the back. I started off making beats and then made an EP. Signed a distribution deal with Bentley Records for about a year and then going independent since then. Being independent is dope because you can drop music whenever you want. You don’t have to listen to anyone tell you this or that. Its dope.

Do you have any dream collaborations? Who are they?

I want to work with Chris brown or drake.

You made some significant progress in 2020. How did the Global pandemic affect your career?

It didn’t It just pushed me to work harder.

For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

GOD is the greatest.
