Enter hot rising Act, June Keed
The Ekiti born artiste started music as a chorister at the Baptist Church but went professional in 2013. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography and Environmental Management from University of Ilorin, rapper cuts an image of a man on mission, who is certain of his destination and convinced of his path.
“Not even the pursuit of a University degree could hinder my love for music. June Keed is out to serve his audience with peerless blends of cool beats, fascinating rhythms with inspiring messages in all his songs. Music is what I do to express myself. I communicate better through music and make sure that it is well arranged to pass a message across my audience,” he said.
His emergence on Nigeria’s Hip-hop scene has been refreshing, as he said, “it is a thing of joy to do what you love doing most.”
For him, rock and country music influences his style of music. “Most of them started from the church and that is part of the things I love about them. My style of music is a feature of Afro beat, Hip Hop and Rock. I started with Rap though.
“There is something very interesting, when I rapper turns to be a singer such person is bound to succeed because he has already learnt the nitty gritty of the profession. They end up being the best musician the industry could have because of the content of their music. They have things to talk about,” he stated
Rather being addressed as an upcoming artiste, June Keed prefer to be seen as an ‘hot coming act.’ “That is what differentiate me from others,” he quipped.
“I have done about 100 songs but I have three songs out, one of them is titled Mr Chilling. It was released last year with a bonus track. Also, I had NO One and Possible, which released the same year.
According to him, Mr Chilling speaks of seamless functioning of any individual in the area of his calling, adding that adage says: “Learn to make money and impact from your hobby and you will never have to work a day of your life.”
“This song expresses the importance of discovering an area you are best at and chill through life with it.” Tuface, Style plus and Asa numbers up to his role models in the industry.
“These people have played important roles in my career. I grew up listening to them; I bought every beat of music they released. Their arrangement of music and voices are just perfect for me.”
On what he is working on now, June Keed disclosed that “I am working on a new project actually and by God’s grace it would be released next month. The title of the song is ‘person pikin’ omolomo in Yoruba language. It is an emotional song and it promises to serve the people.”
