~ Destiny Creator Interview ~
Nyisha: Music is in my soul. Ever since I can remember I loved music, always used to be singing and trying to rap with my family. I definitely come from a musical family so that’s my biggest inspiration. I remember I think from around the age of 5 I used to rinse them old school reggae sting videos. Dancing, singing and rapping that has been me from day one.
Nyisha: The message behind 100 Shot is that NyNy is here. 100 Shot is a demonstration of what I can do. Fire bars, style, flow and content mixed with the uniqueness of Empress Yn created 100 Shot.
Nyisha: I love it! Being a member of two I’ve had so many special moments with the members of our collective, its nice coming together and creating art. The way we feed off of each others energy is crazy lol. You become really close with the people in your collective its a beautiful thing, we have our ups and downs but the synergy and connection is always there.
5. What keeps you motivated in a male dominated industry?
Nyisha: Music is my passion, it doesn’t matter about gender to me. I know I’m talented so expressing and sharing my talent is what I love to do most. Knowing that my music reaches people and that people feel my art means the most to me and it definitely pushes me and keeps me motivated.
9. What can we see Nyisha doing next?
Nyisha: You can expect NyNy/YnYn to always stay true to NyNy and always keeping that element of surprise. Plus I am working on a very important project to elevate the next generation in my local area.
10. So where can we see you performing next?
Nyisha: To celebrate the release of 100 Shot On Sunday 16 June at The Lighthouse Bar & Club, Mutivili Promotions will be hosting a night of dope live entertainment, fun networking, plus an exclusive preview screening of my soon to be released music video 100 Shot produced by Fortune Favours TV.
