Having proved his versatility throughout his career so far, Eugy has made it evident that his sound can come in many shapes and forms but more so with Afrobeats.
I got the chance to catch up with Eugy and ask him a few questions.
E: What sparked your love for music? I believe music is something you’ve grown into via your family?
E: I grew up in church so was always around music. By the time I started secondary school I was mc’ing with the older kids during playtime.
E: You recently put out your latest single Hold Me Down featuring Wavy The Creator – which by the way is a vibe! How did this come about?
E: I recorded part of the song after a trip to Amsterdam. Was stuck on who to get on the hook and my manager suggested Wavy. I messaged her about it and she was down. When she sent her what she had done back I knew it was a wrap!
E: Dance For Me with Mr Eazi was a huge success! Did you ever expect it to take off like it did?
E: Once we recorded the song we had a feeling we had something special. At the time the apartment we were recording in was filled with some of our friends and they couldn’t stop dancing. I just didn’t anticipate how big it would get.
E: Is there anyone is particular that you would love to collaborate with?
E: From the UK It would be cool to work with Headie One.
E: Musically, you have definitely proven an array of versatility. How would you describe your sound as of now?
E: Currently I would say my sound is a smooth blend of Afrobeat and R&B
E: Lyrically, do you write more about what you experience? Through observation? Or both?
E: Definitely from both. I’m influenced by life experiences but also what I see my people going through too.
E: What’s been the biggest highlight of your career so far?
E: It has to be my parents calling me excited about hearing me on the radio. They believed in me from early!
E: What’s the overall aim/goal with music for you?
E: To share my experiences/feelings with the world. To spread love and positivity.
E: What advice would you give to younger people wanting to become a musician? Maybe you’ve learnt some things about the Industry that people should look out for?
E: The best advice is to work smartly and with resilience. A no today doesn’t mean no forever. Always push to achieve the best.
E :What more can we expect this year? Is there a tour or project coming soon?
E: I’ll be performing on the upcoming Starboy fest tour which is due to be epic. I’m also working on an EP as we speak which will be out before the year ends.
