Music gave me a ‘new story’- Afrobeat singer Xstablished

Music means the world to a lot of people. When you really listen to the lyrics of some songs today, you get a STORY as Music helps people express their feelings and emotion.

Most people would even say it’s a way to escape the many hardship life has put before them.

Warri-based Xstablished is an extraordinary artiste who against all odds has prevailed using music as a yardstick to succeed.

Read excerpt from Xstablished’s interview with one of our correspondents;

 

INTRODUCE YOURSELF

My name is Ekemini Emmanuel, stage name Xstablished. I am based in Warri.

TELL ME ABOUT XSTABLISHED

Well, there is not much to know about me as I’m what everyone would call a hustler.

I am Warri-based, I have lived in the ghetto almost all my life and I must say that it has not been easy for me at all.

I had to drop out of school because it became really difficult to pay my fees.

At that very point, I needed a way out and MUSIC was there for me.

HOW DID YOU COME ABOUT THE NAME XSTALISHED

Before I started singing I thought of a name that would stand out, something people would hear and relate with very quickly.

Just as the word ‘ESTABLISH’ means I aim to develop and motivate people out there with my songs.

WHAT’S YOUR GENRE OF MUSIC

I like to think I sing all genres if I say so myself but I love reggae-dancehall. I’m also great at all Afro-pop and Afro-beat.

But subsequently, I sing based on what catches the fancy of my fans.

HAVE YOU RELEASED ANY HIT SINGLE?

Yes, I have basically four songs now.

HAS ANY OF YOUR SONGS  PLAYED ON ANY PLATFORM?

Yes, my songs have played on Galaxy TV, Hip-TV and some others…

HAVE YOU COLLABORATED WITH ANYONE?

Yes, I have collaborated with, Eriggapepperboi and Nazzyhustle in one of my Hit Single, Title: WARRI TO THE WORLD and they’re the biggest rappers in my city and the state, and I strongly believe that more collaborations are on the way this year with some bigger artists in and outside of the country.

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF GOOD MUSIC?

I am of the opinion that good music comes with good packaging, you can’t leave one for the other.

People are easily swayed by what they see and it has to appeal to them first.

So with that been said I think good management is key in terms of the artiste’s physical, social appearance.

Once the image of the artiste is solid, quality production is another thing that will keep the crowd vibing to your songs all day, every day.

SO ARE YOU IN THE INDUSTRY FOR THE FAME OR MONEY?

Money is a considerable factor but it’s the love and passion that drives me.

DO YOU HAVE MENTORS IN THE MUSIC PRODUCTION INDUSTRY?

Yes, I have a mentor when it comes to the music industry production, Donjazzy is my best music producer and he is someone I look up to.

WHAT OTHER PRODUCERS INSPIRE YOU?

Other producers that inspire me again are shizzi, chopstix and Gospelondebeatz.

HOW DO YOU KNOW A SONG IS READY CONSIDERING IT’S A LOT OF WORK?

I don’t know how other artistes know but for me, when it’s ready, I just know it’s ready.

DID YOU LEARN MIX, MASTER AND OR ENGINEER AS A MUSIC ARTIST OR YOU HAVE SOMEBODY FOR THAT?

MORE READING!  Buhari bows to pressure, launches probe against Magu, EFCC

Yes, I actually learned Mix, Master and beats making as I like to go through the process and if I’m not okay with my own sound I seek for help.

IN FIVE YEARS DO YOU STILL SEE YOURSELF DOING MUSIC?

For me all I see is music, my whole being speaks music. So yes, I would still be in the music industry five years from now.

SO A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD ME YOU ARE WORKING ON AN ALBUM. HOW TRUE?

Lol! Your little birdie was right I’m working on an album that I believe will shake the music industry and cause more ‘wahala’ than the one African China did.

I really see big things happening as I have not even dropped the album yet but I have already started getting great comments from my producers and some of my friends.

ARE U AFFILIATED WITH ANY LABEL, TV FILM OR RADIO COMPANIES?

Yes I’m with EvM_Record (Ezeego)

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE ASPIRING TO WALK IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS?

I would advise any aspiring artist to work to the fullest and never give up.
