Video: Samini Talks About Favourite Local and International Artists
Samini was hosted on the “Late Nite Show” on Etv just few days ago and he had a few questions answered. He was asked about what keeps him going as an artist and he simply answered its being focus, original and being the best he can and to achieve the best in time. He has been with us for over a decade and that was even at the time Hiplife dominated the scene and you hardly hear dancehall or ragga. Samini and some few others were able to merge the dancehall with Hiplife and it is something that has stayed with us all these years.
He was asked who his favourite act is internationally, and he mentioned Buju Banton as his all time favorite, Mention Beenie Man and say he loved his urban approach to rasta and his music style in general. He also mentioned Bob Marley and Steel Pulse and did say it was a great honour for him to do a collaboration with Steel Pulse later in his career since he grew up listening to him. With the local artists, Samini applauded Rudebwoy Ranking and Rashid Metal and said these two got their own thing going on and he is impressed with what they are doing. Check out the interview below and get him say these in words!
