You grew up in the church, how did that influence your music career?
As a youth music in the church was a big part in everyone’s lives. So being exposed to music choir, church hymns you see the impact of music at a young age!
Before initially getting into music, is there any other passion in particular you wanted to follow?
Sports! Growing up in the area everyone played every sport so that was the path for me before music. Play sports make it big and help my family! That was the plan!
What made you want to move to the East Coast?
Based on the East Coast, but traveled all over.
Many people have a different perspective on this, but what does it mean to “break a record”?
The meaning “break a record” is probably different nowadays because the easy way for everyone to get music. But for me it’s playing it in the club and constantly sharing through social media.
Do you believe that it’s something that can be done by a single person or only a collective of people?
Breaking a record is Definitely a collective effort. Unless it’s a 100% hit! Still those hits need to be pushed through all platforms.
What can we expect from DJ Yemi this year?
My debut album and more concerts in the works. The third annual YemiPalooza music festival is also coming in 2020!
How about a message to your fans?
Let’s keep going up in 2020. We are just getting started! We have no limits!
