What inspired you to get into music?
Music has always been part of our upbringing, as kids we was exposed to a very diverse styles of music. From Motown music, groups like the temptations, Steve wonder , amazing vocal groups like Boys ii Men, Jodeci. And of course being British with African roots, Grime and Afrobeat played a major part in our music style. There are so many inspirational afrobeat artists we listen to from Fela Kuti, wizkid, Davido, Kofi Olomide, Tiwa Savage, the late Papa Wemba, lots of inspiring artists.

How would you describe your music and how did you start your music career?
I would describe our music style as R&B/ Afrobeat/ Pop. Getting into music was quite easy because almost every one around us was either playing football or singing, and I guess having a brother who had already formed a group prior to us joining made the choice quite easy. So the main person behind all this is Alfie-J Carreira, and the rest of us were just the missing puzzle I guess.

What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
Our song writing style I would say is across Afrobeat meets R&B Pop.

Where would you like to see your music career in 5 years time?
Of course like most Artists you want the whole world to be inspired and moved by your heart, so I would say in 5 years time to be able to achieve anything close to that or even more would be a blessing.
