Interview: George Onyekwere (Geofficialmix)

1. How did you get into the music industry? It all started from church, although I didn’t see myself going into the music scene as a professional. I enjoyed the company of musicians and being amongst those who made good music. That’s how I started. My passion for making good music got me interested in the business part of the music and that was it.

2. How has your sound and persona transformed over the course of your career? Musically it’s been a spontaneous process. The more I listen and engage with virtuosos, the more I understand that music is in phases – you just gotta go with the trend and contribute your quarter to it.

As for my persona, I have improved my ability to be patient and more relatable with people. Naturally, I’m a shy person but understanding that humans are the most complex species to tolerate, I learned to be patient in order to work with many musicians.

3. What has been the defining moment in your career? I am yet to have that very defining moment – At least not one that I would look back at and say this is where it all changed.

Although there have been moments that affected my career positively. Like being invited by a major company to be amongst the panel of judges in a talent contest and working with A-List artists and getting recognition home and abroad for my skills in production and sound engineering.

4. Who has been the biggest influence on your career? I can’t give that credit to one person. A lot of people who are not in the major scene really influenced my career and a few popular ones, too. I really I think my critics were and have been my biggest influence.

5. Have you got any releases coming up? Yeah, a lot.
