Artist Spotlight: Akanm D Boy

What is your name?

My name is Ayokanmi Fakeye

Tell us a bit about yourself/background

I'm an entertainer, first born of the family of 4 children and the only boy of my family.

When did you start doing this (art/music/production/design etc.)?

I started entertainment in 2011

How was the reaction/feedback from those around you (family/friends)?

It was actually those around that pushed me to do what I'm doing now. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I wanted to entertain because I'm such a shy person but it was all positive vibes all through

What inspires your art?

Everything around me inspires my act, from my day-to-day conversations with people to dealing with people basically, everything around me, bathroom, talking to my parents you name it. 

What is your favorite piece and why?

I can't really say which one is my favorite. I've had a lot of smash hits. I love all my ideas regardless of how funny it is or not

Who would you like to work with /who inspires you/ which artist do you admire?

I can't really tell u one person inspires me because I admire everyone trying his or her best to achieve greatness. I respect everyone trying to make it in life

Future Plans?

I got future plans but I get scared to say anything before it materializes but for now my trust and hope is in God to lead me through the right path

What advice do you have for anybody out there who wants to be an artist like you?

Just believe in yourself, and never let anyone have the power to bring you down. If anyone else can make it you can also make, stay consistent and remember to put God first!!!
