- SALUTE: Greetings iLLAMADi, your new single is out now right? How did you get into music?
Like the track says iLLAMADi has been “doin’ this since Joseph Adenuga” (real name of grime superstar Skepta)!
- SALUTE: Klkl! Since you’ve been active for that long, what’s your experience in the music industry been like?
I am an award winning artist (BEFFTA Best UK African Male Act 2016 + Diesel-U-Music Hip Hop Act 2006) and along with my twin brother (@bwoywonder) we have been involved in the UK music scene for a long time and have worked extensively with the UK music scene.
- SALUTE: Who’s inspired you musically?
Musical influences include the obvious: Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Biggie & Noreaga, and closer to home Wiley, Heartless Crew, So Solid, the late Tubby T and also my father, a former musician himself. Right now, my current musical peers, youngers, the UK lifestyle & fashion trends are inspiration for my music.
- SALUTE: What do you think about SALUTE?
I entered the SALUTE competition as it looks like a new fresh and exciting platform which has the potential to really take-off, SALUTE could give me and other artists added exposure and presence they may not have had the opportunity to attain.
There is no such thing as too much exposure – plus let’s be honest, the prize money is maaaaad!!
