“Be yourself, start your own trend, never let anyone stop your grind, and never let anyone change who you are. You’ve got to keep pushing!”

Check out the interview with Young Ekul exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
I simply started in the garage with a microphone, speakers, and cubicles.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Be yourself, start your own trend, never let anyone stop your grind, and never let anyone change who you are. You’ve got to keep pushing!

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest part is getting support and having patience while working on everything. It’s quite a challenge.

We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Social media is by far the best choice for me right now.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
We have some talented artist in the city and the fans are supportive which is great.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself on BET and of course on tour a year from now.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My little sister because she went through so much at a young age. My immediate family also because they are supportive of me, and have always kept it real.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I do. I like the different variety and styles of music.

Thanks! Where can we contact you and find you online?
