Mellow Creme dreams of becoming the Hip Hop King of Africa
Mellow Creme is a proudly Zimbabwean creative Hip-Hop soul artist, illustrator, creative director, poet and graphic designer who dreams of becoming the king of Hip Hop all over Africa he revealed to OyOsNews.
He said, “I can’t rate myself without sounding too obnoxious or narcissist but let me tell you one thing, I can tell you what I want to be rated as, I want to be the king of Africa, nothing less.”
He said he works mostly with his band, every song is different sometimes ideas come from him sometimes from his team or producer for example with the song ‘Heart Attack’ they were in rehearsal and Fletcher who is also his band director was getting bored with the session. He picked up a guitar and started strumming a tune that was bothering him in his head. The whole band jumped in with ideas and we switched on the iMac and started recording. “I took out my pad and write the whole song in like 15 or 20min and in 3hrs we were done.” I want to be a Pop icon in the mould if Tuku, Hugh Masekela, Tupac, Fela Kuti and Brenda Fassie.”
