KC Pozzy’s Record label Motive Entertainment hit me up with his latest EP (that is now available on I- Tunes and being the African Music Enthusiast that I am, I definitely had to sample his music. (I honestly had not heard of him before). Guess what?…After sampling, I loved it…so here we are….ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you to the AfroTrap King; KC Pozzy.
KC Pozzy is an AfroTrap artist, originally from Nigeria but currently based in the UK. (Don’t worry, I too had no idea what AfroTrap Music was until I learned about KC)… He defines AfroTrap Music as the very popular Afro Beat sound infused with trap music which is mainly associated with among others rappers such as Future, Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane.
(Now that you are schooled…..Il send you an invoice laterJ)….KC Pozzy was raised in Lagos Nigeria, but abandoned by his father at the age
of 10, after which he had to fend for himself in the streets of Lagos. His passion for music then had him sing his way out of Nigeria and into United Kingdom. In 2002, KC made the decision to explore other cultures and lifestyles, with the hope of finding his inner self, a decision that had him live in America, Thailand, Canada, Malaysia and Turkey.
KC Pozzy mainly draws inspiration from his musical hero Fela Kuti from Nigeria and European influence from R&B singer Seal. This is in addition to his travel outside Europe that had provided additional inspiration which contributes greatly to his unique music compilations.
The AfroTrap artist looks forward to working with likeminded and world class artists, who share his passion and open mindedness. Further, he hopes to drum up major support across different platforms all around the world.
KC’s EP titled The New King is Born dropped on 11th April 2016 with hit songs such as Look at Me now, Aprochigana, Ice Water Boy and Player Hater.
“I just want to contribute to this great industry and art as music makes up such a fundamental part of whom I am”, he says.
