New Act: Volkhano the Damage

Volkhano the Damage might be new to the scene but the up and coming rapper has earned his stripes. The sneaker-junkie and lover all things underground had some details to share with X ACCESS in anticipation of the release of his debut album. Here’s what he told us;

Tell us about yourself

I’m a young ambitious God-fearing guy, a cool guy, not that talkative. An urban hip-hop artiste but I don’t like to limit myself as just that because I can jump on any beat so I am a musician and I like sneakers. I have nearly 150 pairs.

How did you get your start in the industry?

I have been doing music since I was twelve years old, but professionally I started way back in 2014 after high school. My breakthrough came after releasing the hit single ‘Waiguru Mulla’ and ‘Symbiosis’.

What would you say is the message of your music?

In my music I mainly address political, economic and religious issues that surround’s our society. That’s the message.

Who inspires you?

Basically the day-to-day challenges in life more so my 2-year-old daughter whom I have to look after. She is my motivation.

What are you working on currently?

I am working on my album which will be released later this month. The debut is called ‘Made in 1960’ so I’m really busy in studio. I’m also doing community work for my hood known as the Blackfly Art initiative.

Are there any artistes, both established and new, that you would love to work with?

Of course yes. I would like to work with Pusha T from Good Music and in terms underground here in Kenya, though he is not to as obscure, I respect Raj aka The Banana Boy. We would make a perfect combo.

Do you ever listen to your own music on your playlists?

Yes 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. I realised when I listen to other rappers I end up sounding like them which then ruins my originality but I’m fan of other rappers too.

Which stage would you just love to perform?

As my homie Christopher Wallace said ‘no dream is too B.I.G’. I would love to one day perform at the B.E.T AWARDS and also the GRAMMYS. I believe I will because with God nothing is impossible.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Nobody knows tomorrow but if I will be still alive 10 years from now I will be the figure in society that every kid will wish to be when he/she grows up.
