Teflon: Am a Hip-hop artist.

Pachagazine: What drew you to do Hip-hop? Why Hip-hop?

Teflon: I used to board this matatus which used to play music, most of the music that was being played was hip-hop nkaanza kujifundisha rap za Lil Wayne until now I write my own, hivyo ndo iliingia kwa damu.

Pachagazine: Who inspired you to make music?

Teflon: I would say, there is this internal drive that keeps me motivated and asking for more.

But for artists, International I look up to Meek Mill, then here in Kenya, Nyashinski.

Pachagazine: Tell us what’s your biggest challenge you are facing in your career right now.

Teflon: Right now, the biggest challenge is support.

Pachagazine: Are you under any label?

Teflon: Not yet, am not under any.

Pachagazine: So, music is it what you do fulltime or there’s something else that you do.

Teflon: I do music full time, I found something to live for, music is life.

Pachagazine: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t music?

Teflon: (laughs) a footballer or maybe even a Chef.

Pachagazine: Tell us about your projects, take us through one.

Teflon: The song inaitwa Party, it speaks about all the hustling a person goes through then later it’s party time. And that’s my latest project.

Pachagazine: Any collaborations you’ve done?

Teflon: I would love to collaborate with Country Wizzy.

Pachagazine: How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

Teflon: Actually, I feel internet is one of the essential needs a musician would need, It’s the best way to reach out to people you don’t know off, and best platform to sell out our work.

Pachagazine: What do you enjoy most about being a musician? What do you hate most?

Teflon: What I enjoy is when people see you for the first time but they’ve heard your songs before, that smile on their faces is really enjoyable.

What I hate is the mentality some of these women have when it comes to dating artists.

Pachagazine: So where do you see yourself in few years to come. What should your fans expect in the near future?

Teflon: In the near future I want them to be ready to see a whole new Teflon, New music type, collaborations.

 Am working on finishing up 2k Bars album. So much installed for them.

Let’s keep God first, wear your mask, sanitize and keep social distance but most importantly thank you for your continued support, I love you guys so much and May God Bless you.
