Is music the easiest talent to explore? You would think so considering there are so many young people doing it or joining the industry. However music to Shaka is a passion he has had since he was a kid. “I discovered I could sing way back in primary seven when I would kill Michael Jackson’s – We are the world song.” He said
Like a man of talent he is, it is safe to say that he is a jack of all trades. He has explored the various aspects of the arts industry. Modeling, dancing, poetry, photography, basket ball name it.
Although he is currently pursuing a bachelors degree in Journalism, his heart is also fully in for music. He first rose to mini-fame when he did a Sam smith-Too good at goodbyes cover that made rounds on social media. However, what made people curious about who he is, is when he did Winnie Nwagi’s Matala that left the songstress stunned. Because, people believe in his dream, he has got chance to perform at different platforms like Mavuno, Kenjis, National theatre, charity events and ofcourse church.
Shaka advises pulsers to always believe in themselves because no one will do so if they don’t do it first. He also advises them to work so hard on their craft so that it can speak for itself.
Recently, he released an EP album that no one saw coming. His impressive choice to hunt for his dream really hard at an early age will eventually pay off. Check out this track on TIDAL: “Its Over” by Shaka Mao https://tidal.com/track/127840233
