MADD: Madd OG is a rapper. Real name is Madoya, a 3rd year student at the Technical University of Kenya.

TYM: when did you start rapping?

MADD: I’ve been a lover of music since nursery school and was a mad fan of Lil Wayne. The guy really had an impact on me when it came to music. By class 4, I wanted to put locks and tattoos just like him ’cause I really admired the guy. I had never done anything related to music till 2016 when I realized I could flow to most rappers songs especially Khaligraph Jones. So I asked myself, If I can flow like this, si then if I get my own lyrics I could be a rapper. And that’s when I sat down and wrote my very first rap. It was whack I tell you!

TYM: who inspires you?
