Juma Athman : When did the love for music start?
As a kid, my dad loved music. Most of our bonding took place in our living room where he’d play anything from Bob Marley to Daddy Lumba. It’s was during primary and high school when I was introduce to music produced by timbo and pharrel Williams. That’s what gingered me into getting into making beats.
Juma Athman : The first song you ever produced and how did it sound?
@KOJO_Cue’s E No Be Say. Was odd to me at first because I was surprised he chose that beat. But it’s was and is still a jam.
Juma Athman : Why did you go for audio production and engineering?
I love music. I can’t sing and I love working and contributing to great music. I also believe that I have something unique to offer with my sound.
