Marlvern: “Cool. Hillzy when i hear your name the first thing which comes into my mind is ‘MUROORA!,’ that jam bro tell me how did u come up with that?, was it a real life story?,”
Hillzy: “So I got a call this other day, from @DjChrxn and he was suggesting that, I add more Shona elements in my sound. The call ended at 10pm and I sat on my laptop. Played the main chords and just started adding elements to it. By 12am I was done with the beat, 3am I was done writing lyrics.”
“By 6am the vocals were done and by 9am I sent it to radio, its probably the hardest i have ever worked on a track.”
Marlvern: “Wow, kinda interesting who would believe that masterpiece was done in hours.
Your sound is very unique where do u get that from?. Who influences your music?.”
Hillzy: “I can say the 2008/2009 era of Hip Hop & RnB. That’s what inspired me from singing in a church choir and actually trying to record a self composed song.”
Marlvern: “You make the hottest love songs ever, l was listening to ‘Tv Room’, its so lekker, l think you and @exqwizit04 (ExQ), can givethe next big banger.”
“Hillzy what are you doing in terms of globalising your art and brand?.”
Hillzy: “We spoke of it a while back, tried to reach out again but these guys are extremely busy I guess. I’ve been game.”
“Globalizing my brand, l work on my sound and beat production to level up track by track. I run my self-funded ads and for now they are doing well.”
Marlvern: Okay, l know some humble big shots who can put in big deliveries, do something with @JayCActor1 and @Brythreesixty.”
“How does it feels to be famous how z the treatment pabasa ne mumaraini (at work and the social communitues) ?.
Hillzy: “As long as I vibe with the track and it makes sense at a marketing and business perspective I can collabo with anyone. Business comes first.”
The interview below was now being conducted by Queen Mikka (@MikkaJay)
Mikka: “A while ago l saw a video of ‘You Are Enough’, with an Empawa tag can you tell us more about that ?.
Hillzy: “Friends suggested that I give it a shot & I was a bit nervous to do so. I was too busy to make something at that time so I decided to submit ‘You Are Enough’. Mr Eazi then came to Cape Town and called me personally to let me know it was a relevant and powerful song that needed legit visuals.”
Mikka: “Wow!, the song is really inspiring l must say, no guy is worth your tears ladies know what you deserve!, The man himself said it!.”
“So tell us, most of your songs are love related, is there a special someone ?.”
Hillzy: “My tracks are based on my life/conversations I have with people and sometimes out of pure imagination.
My relationship status is taken.”
Mikka: “Girls you heard it he is “Taken”.
So which church do you go to?, You mentioned that you were in the church choir ?.”
Hillzy: “Im an Anglican, l went to St Faiths Mission, form 1 to form 6 and we were the Scripture Union boys.”
Mikka: “So you mentioned that this is a part-time thing so what do you do full time ?.
Hillzy: “I’m an iOS & Android Developer,”
Mikka: “l don’t know much about that but sounds cool!,
So should we expect some new music this year?, Are you working on anything ?.”
Hillzy: “Expect singles definitely and hopefully an EP. Im always working.”
Mikka: “Any features on the EP?.”
Hillzy: “Dont wanna reveal a lot but ‘TV Room’ and ‘Keys’ are in there. There is going to be 3 to 4 featuring artists.”
Mikka: “What about the people who would want to work with you, how can they get in touch with you ?.”
Hillzy: “firstname.lastname@example.org -> send me your bio and your profiles so that l see numbers. The concept as well, it has to relate to me.”
Mikka: “Well, you heard the man.
So lastly if you were to go back in time, what advice would you give to your younger self, say the 16year old you ?.”
Hillzy: “Consistency is the key.”
