Mike Akox was quite elated with the hearty conversation he had with Mz Gee on the set, TV3. “The
feeling on TV3 is a major one for me. I’m even shaking. Being on TV3, a very huge network is likened
to being on MTV.”
“I manage myself. I don’t buy expensive stuff. So I advise the youths to save and invest. That way
they don’t feel pressured and live within their means”, he added.
While premiering the new video “Super Mario” which features Stonebwoy, he said “I opened for
Stonebwoy at a show in Australia about 4 years ago. And after the show we met and through a few
freestyles the connect began from there. I even cooked for us and while he was leaving, and I’m like,
when are we gonna work on something? Then he looked at me and said we will work. And here we
are and I got him on this big record, Super Mario”.
On His Music:
My music represents antique culture. I don’t really sit down to write my music. When the inspiration
comes I just enter the booth to record. My music is one that connects and resonates with everyone
who listens to my type of music. Songs do impact people, songs do become major hits and I’m not
limited to that. But I want my music to touch people and influence them, positively. He made
references to Michael Jackson, James Brown who did perform across different audiences.
As an artiste who is new to the Ghanaian terrain, I plan my stuff well and make sure I pull the right
plugs to get my music and videos across the right channels.
