With Posh Nation Mukhy Steps Out Bold
For Mukhtar Sarumi, otherwise known as Mukhy, the goal is to work hard, earn a good living and regret nothing, even if that meant abandoning his first-class degree or his corporate Job in the UK.
Stepping out with a 9-track debut album, dubbed Posh Nation, the Afro-fusion singer paints a portrait of his emotions, telling stories on love, life and relationships.
In Posh Nation, Mukhy serves special rhythms tailored to flush with elegance and feel-good melodies. The young musician explains that the priority was “to open up because I have that ability with a pen. My philosophy is to always be myself, and nothing else. Every word is true to me.”
He explains that the project aims at evoking an elegant state of mind. “It captures the way I (Posh) is feeling and the place that I go to when I drift into my head. It opens people up to the complex nature of my mind (the nation).
“Here, we persevere, and are ready to support others because we know we can’t do it all alone. This elegant mind-state isn’t closed or narrow. In Posh Nation, everyone is modest enough to admit they are or they’ve been down and under. In this elegant frame of mind, we know we can’t kill ourselves. We’re all in search of happiness. We are here for a good time, and if you are too, welcome to Posh Nation.”
On quitting his job, Mukhy says he has no regrets, as “there was no way I would have been happy. Next came a key question, if you have the option to choose a happier route, why not take it? Does it Matter if it’s harder?”
While expressing his desire to work with every artiste possibly, he pinpoints Mayorkun, Olamide, Blaqbonez, Amaree, and some others, as the people he is currently admiring.
As Posh Nation continues to reflect his emotions, Mukhy affirms that his music is as dynamic as his moods; and so he would continue to create the projects as unique and intriguing as possible.
“To be the best I can be and I hope the best I can be is a Grammy winning artiste,” the young singer envisions his future in the expansive music industry.
