Interview : GrooveCandi

Written by Super User.

Today in our hot seat we have Groove Candi, a female dj/producer that needs little introduction. She has come a long way to be a force to be recorned with within the male dominated industry.

Q - Who is Groove Candi?

A - Groove Candi is a 20something year old passionate music lover, a female who followed her dream and is living proof that anything is possible with God Luke 1:37, that your mind and attitude determines your destiny. She is  making it, irrespective of her background. Professionally, I'm a DJ as well as producer.

Q - When did your love for music and djing start?

A - I was born with the music, my late grandmother loved music so badly and I sometimes thank my mom for naming me after her, but that's everytime when things go right, haaa ha,. I participated in school choirs from my primary level and by high school I was chosen to coordinating anything to do with music, that includes farewell functions, choirs and competitions. I also participated in a musical show on local radio as well as recorded my 1st demo in school.

Q - What are your aspirations/dreams in life?

A - My aspiration in life? #Beyonce's voice is to help people empower themselves, emotionally, I fear to see a hateful, heartless nation, whereby you are being disliked for doing what you love. Women have what it takes to give out the best emotional elements in music! It can only take music to ground, gather and feed love to nations with a  universal language. I want to see a common level of musical knowledge love and production from males and females in the near future. My short term goal in this is to own a music production studio.

Q - As talented as you are, I just have to ask this question...Have you ever been solicited by any labels to sign you? If so can you share which ones.

A - Yes I have been solicited to sign to labels but I rather not disclose which.

Q - That brings me to my next question, is there any particular reason why you didn't sign with them?

A - To me it felt like falling into the idea of being "owned", that's what I feared most, but until the Most High sent through Wanubi Project  my way, I took the chance because its a new label, and very hungry for not only success but helping me define my route. I am part of the family, the level of respect, caring and dedication is a blessing to me.

Q - Are you currently signed?

A - Yes I Am under #WanubiProject

Q - I follow you, I support you as a female dj. I see you playing on these big events with all of the industry male heavyweights, how does it make you feel as a female dj?

A - It is a blessing to share stages with people I've always admired, it is very humbling and as a woman, carrying yourself with dignity, being yourself and focusing on doing what you love earns one respect, and in that, every time I ask for help or a favor they give with open arms. I got used to being starstruck. Lol

Q - Who have you collaborated with?

A.  I worked with different vocalist and producers, and currently dropping an Ep with HouseVictimz...am into soulful house, I pray to remain in this lane.

Q - which vocalists do you wish to work with?

A - Tiffany Rosebud, yes I said it, that women is amazing,

Q - Where would you like to see Groove Candi as a brand?

A - I would love to see my legacy growing, awards under my name, women power, owning a recording studio... Can I not say more? Ppl might steal my ideas. LOL

Q - Celebrity Crush?

A - I would go for Musa Sukwene, his voice sold my soul...

Q - Favourite Dj? I hate to answer this question, but I think Dj Fresh rocks, his mixing, sequence, track selection...he is flowing and remains relevant. No doubt

Q - Message to your fans and Mzansi 411 readers?

A - Do not compromise, if something doesn't define you, don't do it... And education is the most powerful tool ever, it is a tool to enhance what God gave us human species above any other creations, brains... Use it

It was nice chatting to you Groove Candi, we wish you all the best for your future endeavours...Good luck!

I think everything posted made a lot of sense. But, think about this, suppose you added a little information? I am not saying your content is not solid., but what
if you added a headline to maybe grab a person's attention? I mean Interview : GrooveCandi is kinda boring.
You could peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post titles
to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a
related pic or two to get people interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit
more interesting.

Nothing is as powerful as a sister who knows her worth and her purpose. May you grow to reach your dreams and be the blazing flame that paves the way to the little sisters to follow in your foot steps.
