CC: What inspires you to be involved in community development?
DJ Mwah: I faced a lot of challenges while growing up. The challenges weren’t really unique to me and are what every young person is going through. We may have different contexts but they are the same. Losing my mum in 2013 was the game changer for me and made be make that extra step to start doing community projects.
CC: Do you consider your project innovative and is there a possibility for expansion?
DJ Mwah: We combine community development with the artists I have at a’Domo, where we go around high schools raising awareness about issues affecting the young people using our music and how to address them. I plan to restructure my studio soon to a more professional venture complete with artist management contracts and all that jazz.
CC: Have your projects brought about positive change in the community?
DJ Mwah: Through Cross Connect, we have been able to reach and impact more than 1000 students so far. At a’Domo we have also provided opportunity for young guys to come off the street and explore their musical talent. One such artist we have is Solo P.
CC: What message would you like to send to other young guys out there?
DJ Mwah: Keep it real in your music and stay sober.
