Few days ago… Hitvibz spent some time with the upcoming Port Harcourt based artiste, Kroxx, for his time and experience so far in the music industry. The young star shared a lot on how he feels about his journey and his much anticipated upcoming EP.
The “Gratitude” crooner well known for his simple flows has been in the industry fighting for a recognition, and when asked about his time in the industry so far, he said: “So far, it’s not being too easy but the grace of God has been my testimony”.
In an exclusive interview with Hitvibz, Kroxx eased up and shared a lot with us.
Firstly, I’d like you to tell us, how has it been so far as an artiste?
Kroxx: Uhmmm!! not too easy
But the grace of God has been my testimony.
One very good song that took you to places! What is the theme of that song and how does it feel to be called “Mr. Gratitude”?
Kroxx: Well, I feel like I’ve finally started my career. Gratitude was pure inspiration. I have written a million songs you know? But then the inspiration for gratitude came immediately and was recorded immediately too..
The song was triggered by a major loss I experienced early this year (nobody died though). But I lost something really big and important to me. I just feel gratitude should be given regardless.
The public wants to know, whilst coming this far, what challenges have you face??
Kroxx: Way too many challenges. I haven’t really gone as far as I want, I’m still working towards that. One of the major challenges I have faced so far is getting my music out there. I can’t even count how many times I have begged for a free promotion and blogging.
But then with time and effort I have been scaling through. Another major challenge I faced was good production that led me to learning production so I could get a personified sound. So, basically, I have been able to get over this challenge.
The biggest challenges still are funds and connections, by God’s grace we’ve been scaling through, though it hasn’t been the best but then we’re trying, I, my management and my team.
Is there anything your fans are to expect from you in the nearest future?
Kroxx: I’m working on a compilation..
A playlist, an EP as we all know. 5 songs, massive songs, the best the south has to offer.
Are you certain your fans would vibe to these???
Kroxx: (giggles) Well… i can’t tell, but then I promise to deliver much as I can.
After setbacks, challenges and all, how do you feel as you are set to drop more songs?
Kroxx: Challenges are the motivation.
The more the challenge, the stronger I become… Basically, I’m ready to burst speakers.
Ok so Mr. Gratitude, is there anything you’d like to tell your fans?
Kroxx: Yes! Please they should expect fireeee! (Hahaha) Irregular sound, melody, rhythm, most importantly; vibeeeee!
Alright Kroxx. Thank you for your time as we all await your new EP. We wish you all the best and good luck in your music career!
Kroxx: Thanks alot for having me. I had a great time with y’all.
