Majic Mike whats the notion behind that name?
It’s more of a motivational name. Every time i tell someone my name is majic mike, even i expect to deliver. That and it sounds cool.

 

You used to be a rapper , a good one in fact , stage name skele, what happened?

 ha-ha.. i took a back sit from that to concentrate on production. I’ve been thinking of getting back to it but we’ll see.

   
So, you dont rap anymore?

not right now.. am doing production full time

 Tell me a little bit about yourself? Who is Michael?
am an easy dude, i find beauty in the simple things in life, and i love doing what i do

How did you get into production?
i started off as a rapper. Immediately i cleared high school I recorded my first song at scratch records and it just picked from there. I’ve been interested in the music scene since  I was young though, had to finish with school first before i got to it. Still went back to school for my sound engineering course.

Code Red, how did you get there?
  I was recommended to them, went in for an interview and that was it.

Who are the people you have worked with as a producer?
am working with a lot of new talent from the red republik but some of the people you might know are juliani, madtraxx, sauti sol, muthoni DQ, nameless, kriss eeh baba , collo, prezzo and canibal. 

 I have seen a  of project doing rounds in youtube for Code Red , tell me a little bit about this?

its not a code red project, it’s a Majic Mike project. “Majic in 3” is an online release series that takes people for a magical journey that is creating music. we want people to develop that connection, make them feel like they were in the studio. There are 2 episodes out; “majic in 3 feat juliani” and “majic in 3 feat kriss ehh baba”. More on the way.

We see a lot of production houses rising , some with NOT good music , others with quality production what does it take to be a producer in this  industry?
Two words, education and passion. a good record is as much about the quality of mastering as it is creativity. if your passionate about something then you enjoy doing it, learning the professionalism it requires just makes you better at it.

Getting into music seems like a scapegoat for many young people, they assume education, and music is the ‘easy’ way of earning money, does this mean that to get into this industry one does not need education, whether it is in this industry or another one?

a lot of guys in the industry have degrees, so music is not for drop outs. Education is important. think about it, how far can one go if they can’t read or write? Or they can’t understand English? Music especially is all about strategy and applying it, so either way you’re constantly thinking, planning and executing.

What was the highest point of your career?
i don’t think am there yet, being at the peak means the only way from there is down so no matter what great thing i accomplish it won’t be my peak.

Okay, so what do you do for fun?
i watch movies, chill with friends, play a lot of PS ha-ha. I am a crazy introvert, i just love chilling out.

In the next 4 years where do you see yourself?
Married with kids, he he… I want to be the most respected producer in Africa, that’s what am working towards for the near future.

Three words to sum up what you have achieved so far
