An authentic interview with the spoken word artist
This emerging Nigerian spoken word artist continues to create music with relatable rhymes, thought-provoking anecdotes and crazy instrumentals.
I first stumbled across Ayowrote on soundcloud and instantly fell in love with his sound. I was taken by the realistic rhymes and melody of ChrchGrl\Demo and the compelling narrative in Love Hard/Bae and have continued to follow his movements.
I got the opportunity to ask the artist a couple of questions…
Was music your main aspiration?
I don’t really remember having any main aspirations when I was younger. I think I fell into music because I just loved the art form. I started off just taking in spoken poetry and drama.
How has the journey been?
The journey has been fun learning and understanding the music I’m making. I enjoy fusing music and poetry at it’s purest form.
Who are your biggest inspirations?
My biggest inspirations are my friends and people around me that strive to reach their dreams. Notably Nathan Miller a super talented filmmaker and another friend, actor Kayode Ewumi they inspire me the most.
How would you describe your sound?
I’ll say it’s just very local, exciting and innovative. I just like to mix genres and have fun with it.
What themes do you like to address in your songs?
Real life. Relationships and personal growth.
What do you want the youth to take away from your music?
I don’t know yet what I want people to take from my music. I want them to love it and understand it mostly.
