AJOFE STREETMIC (AFROBEAT ARTIST/PRODUCER)
Afrobeat is a music genre which involves the combination of elements of West African musical styles such as Fuji music and highlife with American funk and jazz influences, with a focus on chanted vocals, complex intersecting rhythms, and percussion.
1.) Tell us about yourself and your childhood?
I am Ajofe StreetMic, Afrobeats/Dancell Artist and Music Producer. I grew up in Nigeria. Started writing music at age 13. Made my first studio demo at 15 and made music as one of the top artists all through my days in college. Studied Theatre Arts for my bachelors and public relations for my master’s degree.
2.) Tell us about a challenging time in your life and what lessons you learned from it?
One of the most challenging experiences of my life was moving from Nigeria to the USA at 24. Adjusting to the lifestyle and culture of this place took the hell out of me but the lesson that came out of that is there is always a happy ending to all pains you go through in life. You just gotta hold on and keep pushing towards that light at the end of the tunnel.
3.) How or what started your passion?
Just genuine interest. I was a very inquisitive teenager and one of the things that interested me most was music. I wanted to learn how to write, record, make beats, mix and then master my own music. Thanks to my pops who saw that and bought me a laptop with sound productions software.
4.) What motivates you to follow and pursue your passion?
Knowing that it only takes time for my imaginations to become reality. I visualize everything I do, then draw a plan and follow that plan until it becomes a reality.
5.) What advice would you give to the new up and coming artist?
"Keep grinding. Don’t feel entitled to anything. Don’t chase the clout. Be yourself…your true fans will find you."
6.) What is the best advice would you give to your younger self?
Don’t waste your time trying to get people to believe in you, StreetMic. Focus on being the best version of yourself!
7.) Have you or how do you contribute to the community?
I give whatever I can to whoever needs it.
8.) Who do you look up to besides your parents?
Jay-Z & Childish Gambino.
9.) What are your goals for the next 5 years?
Grow grow grow! Drop my first album and create more videos and more EP. Buy a house and go on a tour.
10.) What is your motto in life?
"Speak for yourself. You don’t know about what others go through."
11.) How did you find out about Made4Mankind Clothing?
I found out about them on Instagram through mutual friends.
12.) What do you know about Made4Mankind Clothing?
Made4Mankind has the urban vibes store for the community.
13.) Describe Made4Mankind Clothing in one word.
