Tiara – For the people that don’t know you tell them who you are.
Lemzi – I am an artist and a creator from London, I do a lot of music, and coordinate events. I’m currently working on developing an app that is for mindfulness, music, and learning how to meditate.
Tiara – How was it for you growing up in East London?
Lemzi – East London is an interesting place, as a teenager I was always in tune to what was going on outside of East London.
Tiara – Tell me about your transition from a lawyer to an artist.
Lemzi -Making music has been a passion of mine since I was 10 years old. As I got older I started doing open mic performances and getting more of an insight of what it means to get in the studio and collaborate with other artists.
Tiara – How did you survive as an artist through covid?
Lemzi – In August of 2020 I couldn’t go to any events, work in the studio to create new music, I felt like it was a big pause on everything, but I didn’t give up, I just thought of new ideas to get better.
Tiara – Tell me about your new single “Solxtions”.
Lemzi – My mind set for the song is to go out and enjoy yourself without being problematic.
Tiara – What advice would you give upcoming artists?
Lemzi – If you want to be an artist, you have to be committed, it takes a lot of energy and hard work. If you don’t enjoy it, be honest with yourself and find something that you love to do.
Tiara – What inspires you?
Lemzi – I want my music to be the best, and I want to perform in the states and across the world, and meeting new people keeps me motivated.
