When you first started posting on tumblr did you have any idea what might come from it?
I didnt have a clue. I just liked tumblr at that moment and was doing my own thing, not trying to promote myself or anything like that whatsoever.What do you think it is about social media that is so powerful?
I think its cause it is in real time most of the time. We are lucky these days cause we can know exactly whats happening in the world straight away or we can also find out what celebrities are doing in some specific moment. Also some people want to fight about getting more followers than others just to brag about haha.What does a normal weekend look like for you?
Pretty chilled. I dont go out much as Im very busy during the week so i just want to relax really. But i always like to hang out with friends or going to music shows if theres any that weekend.Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
Yes, I have a couple of projects im currently working on right now, some of them are related to social media and some others aren’t.

Do you think you will ever move back to Spain?
Yeah maybe in the future if the situation out there gets better, but for now i’m very comfortable in london and theres a lot to do out here!

Favourite spot in London?
I’d say my house as its where I feel most comfortable, but also theres a lot of good restaurants that I love, especially in East London!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Literally have no clue. I dont feel like I belong in any city so I’m open to always change cities, wherever business take me really! I hope Im settled down in 5 years tho, and have a family not much later than that.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?
I really liked the shard hoodie and the jewelry!

Describe yourself using a lyric from a song/rap.
I’m the furthest thing from perfect, but I do know what my worth is, wouldn’t sell myself below, even if you made a mass-purchase.How did you get your start in music?
I started off with poetry in my young years….but rapping – I started when I was about 14, got more serious with 16, after a month of artist development in Miami. Basically, a relative in Atlanta had heard my music I had uploaded to youtube and sent it around in the states and suddenly I get an email from a producer/songwriter: Blizzy Baxter. He then mentored me a lot during that time. Upon return I started taking the whole rapping more seriously and realized that no mater where I came from, if I worked hard enough, the right people would hear my music through the internet. I saw that it doesn’t matter where I come from, as long as I head in the right direction, I’ll get where I want to go/where I’m supposed to be. We are connected and alike seek each-other – the fact that I am saying this and you are reading this and may be on the other side of the earth – in that lays our generation’s power.Best gig you’ve ever done/been to?
I’d say Ghetts was the most amazing Gig I’ve ever been to. I believe many people, especially outside of the UK don’t understand Grime, because they’ve never seen/heard it live. The energy is unreal. I think the best way for Grime to become more international is through live shows, I’ve never been to a concert with that much energy and crowd interaction. I must say I didn’t really get Grime at first when I came to the UK. But Ghetts show was like an epiphany for me.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

I just graduated from university a few days ago. So now that the degree is out the way, as I had promised my parents, I can focus on doing music -however, I did enjoy studying at the end. Studying business enterprise taught me a lot about how to run and start my own company (record label). So now I just want to get fully dedicated in exploring the music scene here, collaborating, producing with people and releasing my first EP/Mixtape.

Favourite holiday destination?
I have a very nerdy side to me and I don’t like “doing nothing“ – I’m very result/productivity driven. My dream Holiday would be to one day stand on the moon and look at earth. I’m a massive KidCudi fan, so anyone who’s familiar with that whole movement will understand why. #DreamOn #ManOnTheMoon

Favourite spot in London?
I haven’t explored London too much yet but am looking forward to when finally moving here early next year. So am looking forward to anyone willing to show me around, hola at me!

I however do love Camden, especially the market, as well as Brixton. Both areas are mad creative and great sources of inspiration and creativity. Also a lot of entrepreneurship and diversity of cultures there. Also, when it comes to architecture, Canary Wharf is great, it has a feeling like Coruscant in StarWars (but thats again the Nerd in me).

If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing instead?
I’d probably be working in international relations/affairs or consultancy. I believe that if you want to have influence or change something for the better, like e.g. fighting the corruption between the Western Hemisphere and leaders in the emerging/developing countries, you first have to become part of the system, do everything to not let it corrupt you and work from the inside, fighting for your cause. Prove that you understand and are capable, only then people will pay attention when you criticize or insist on change.

Which musician would you most like to work with?
If Johnny J was still alive then him, he used to be 2pac’s producer and obviously, Pac or Dr. Dre. Further, Sade, Femi or Fela Kuti, Eminem, Kanye West and Rick Rubin – him and Kanye always tend to get the greatness out of people. Finally, anyone from the whole Soulection clan, they create crazy vibes. Ohh and Little Simz, she’s very inspirational! Also, in Germany there’s an incredible rapper, Megaloh, check him out!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I pray and work on to be in the position where I can work with anyone in any country, from music to business, art, finance, fashion and just create, develop. Make something meaningful, with society at it’s heart as beneficiary. And I want to be in the position to discover and help other talented acts and entrepreneurs, without trying to create a box/image that’s necessary to market them or robbing them off of their ideas, as it is often common practice today. I want to support/help and educate…that is the plan. I know it is a lot but I think it’s better to dream high and give your best – so that if you fail the end goal, you’ll still achieve a substantial amount. If you dream small and you fail the end goal, you’ll achieve nothing!

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?
I love the jumpers with the camo prints on the side, the necklaces and the tracksuit, it’s super comfy – thats like something I’d probably live in when I create an album or record the EP!

Describe yourself using a line from your favourite poem.
Unfortunately English Lit was never my forte during school so me and poems are a no-no.

What about 3 words?
Opinionated, sensitive and loyal.

What do you feel are the advantages and disadvantages of being an ethnic model in the fashion industry?
An advantage of being an ethnic model is having a slight niche; I don’t really know too many Indians in the industry so it’s nice to be a little different. Then again I’m put in the category with Brazilians, Israelis etc. and they are all extremely beautiful. A disadvantage is when make up artists can’t find the right foundation for my skin tone. It’s the worst thing ever!

If you weren’t a model what would you be doing instead?
I did criminology and psychology at uni and have always been obsessed with something in that field, so maybe a masters in an area of that.

What advice would you give an aspiring model?
My advice would be… always have a backbone, and most importantly don’t get caught up in industry because it sounds cringe but it can change you a lot.

Number 1 rule for taking a great selfie?
Always have good lighting and if that fails put it to black and white.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
No unfortunately not, I’m just doing all my regular ecomm clients but I’m trying to sort out some work experience for something within psychology actually which will be really good for me, if I get!

Who’s your favourite fashion designer?
I’ve always had a guilty pleasure for Moschino. I am obsessed with their stuff but could never pull it off.

Favourite holiday destination?
South America! Went travelling for 7 months last year, incredible.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully a qualified psychologist with a wonderful husband and a child on the way… optimistic.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?
I love a good oversized hoodie; so all the hoodies and sweatshirts are my fave!

I couldn’t live without…
Coconut oil (or my iPhone) haha xxx

Describe yourself in 3 words
Confident, Astute, Happy.

If you weren’t a model what would you be doing instead?
Modelling coincides with  studying for my university degree so I (try to) balance both kind of. But I want to work in fashion marketing.

What advice would you give an aspiring model trying to catch a break?
Don’t pay agencies money for pictures!.. I hear this happen way too much, someone at my uni spent half her student loan on polaroids and a book.. Dont do it! And generally be patient.

What do you hope to do after you finish your course at Uni?
I want to work in fashion marketing or just marketing in general, it really interests me, I try to take a psychological viewpoint on it.

Who’s your favourite fashion designer?
Rick Owens.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
Not really, I went to Germany a couple of weeks ago for a job, just fashion week in January really.

Favourite restaurant?
Wagamama 100% The Yasai Ramen is seerious!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Successful.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?
The black shard hoodie and the 4 symbols beanie.. The cross earring is sick as well.

Describe yourself using a lyric from a song.

‘Every test is a lesson, every lesson is a blessing if you chose to see the message’. Love that one because it sums life up. There’s good times and bad times and you can learn from them both.

How did you get your start in music?

After building and releasing music for a few years, I played a headline show in London that a management company came to. They liked what they saw and we had a few meetings after. Eventually they offered me a management contract and from then on things started to move in a great direction pretty rapidly.

Best gig you’ve ever done?

Probably playing the O2 Arena with Hillsong. 18,000 people and all of them vibing with you. There’s nothing quite like it. It’s such an iconic venue so was great to play there.

Favourite part of winter?

Having a great excuse to not go out! I like being at home when I’m not performing or recording so winter’s good because my friends don’t go out as much!

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

I’ve just dropped a new album called Secret World. Pretty chuffed with it and it’s the best body of work I’ve released. Check it out!

Favourite holiday destination?

Gotta be the Maldives. I went there on honeymoon and it was sick. Great weather, great food, super chilled. Swam with sharks too which obviously was wicked.

Favourite spot in London?

Blackheath Common because there’s lots of cool little shops and restaurants or the Breakfast Club spot in Liverpool Street. The food is the best.

If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing instead?

I’d probably be working with young people. I’m passionate about people reaching their full potential and realising they’ve got purpose in life.

Which musician or band would you most like to work with?

At the moment it’s Tori Kelly. Her voice is something else and I love what she stands for.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Alive, doing what I love, and maybe with a couple of kids.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?

I love the grey tracksuit. It’s cool for comfort indoors and great to wear out too.

I couldn’t live without…

Using 3 words describe yourself.

Outgoing, mysterious and people would say I’m a ‘partyholic’. I love a good party.

 

How did you get your start in dance?

I started dancing quite late it was until I was studying at BRIT school where I took an extra curricular dance class and the teacher said I should think about it doing it as my main strand.

 

If you could dance for any artist or any production who would it be and why?

I think the dream would be too dance for either Chris Brown or Lady Gaga. Chris Brown is an amazing dancer himself and his tour and dancers are just epic. Lady Gaga is everything I love about pop culture from fashion to art and to music. I love how outgoing and modern she is.

 

Do you feel being a dancer helps in being a model as well?

100%! I feel like after constantly spending hours in class and the dance studio I’ve really learnt how to be aware of my body and angles which helps with having a rhythm when being in front of the camera.

 

What advice would you give any aspiring dancers?

To always work hard keep driven and keep a ‘cute’ outfit.

 

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

At the moment I’m just dipping my hands into a bit of everything, I did a cool ASOS commercial the other day and I’ve just been shooting with some really dope photographers. I’m also assisting at few up coming events and photoshoots for some great stylists and magazines.

 

Favourite holiday destination?

I love going to Ghana, relaxing in the sun and on the beach. It’s a great place to be but I really want to go to Tokyo and experience the culture.

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I want to have a few campaigns under my belt and to hopefully be on tour with an artist.

 

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?

I love the So Serge charcoal arm sweatshirt and the charcoal So Serge Sweatpants. I think it’s a great combination to look cool and cosy for the season.

 

I couldn’t live without…

Carmex or lip balm.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Driven, outgoing and adaptable

What do feel are the advantages and disadvantage of being an ethnic model in the fashion industry?

Advantage would be that we bring a different look because of our ethnic backgrounds. So when designers need that ‘traditional african look’ ethnic models will be preferred.

I would say the disadvantages is that there are more demand for caucasian models, therefore not allowing many doors for ethnic models.

If you weren’t a model what would you be doing instead?

I would most definitely be a DJ as that was my main focus before modelling and still do a bit now when I have the time.

What advice would you give an aspiring model trying to catch a break?

I would say study the industry, whatever you do make sure you do it with all you’ve got because you never know who’s watching.

What do you enjoy most – runway or photo shoots?

Tough one but I would say photo shoots.

3 tips for taking an amazing selfie?

Good angle, lighting and don’t hold the camera to close.

Who’s your favourite fashion designer?

Tom Ford

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

I’m going to be modelling next year in London for a Fashion & Charity ball to raise awareness for unprivileged children with rare diseases and the likes of Kendall Jenner, Rosie Huntington-whitely, and Chris brown will be attending.

Favourite restaurant?

Marco Pierre White

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Successful in the modelling industry, modelling for world class brands.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?

The charcoal so serge arm sweat and the matching bottoms

I couldn’t live without…

My Moms baking.

Hollywood going in a weeks’ time can’t wait.

Successful in whatever path I choose to take in life and also have some great friends and my family enjoying the journey with me.

Describe yourself in three words. 

Humble. Creative dark horse. A dreamer.

How many tattoos have you got? 

Nine in total. When I move to London I’m going to get more, I have so many ideas and I want to be covered!

How do you balance being an artist, designer and writer? 

Having a diary and a to-do list.

I’m always writing to-do lists and prioritising them into my diary and calendars at work. The time spent on each job depends entirely on the importance and size of the project or job I’m doing, for instance I’ve been working on a ballet costume design project lately and I’ve spent more time on designing than I have drawing or writing. It’s the same for anything else, really!

 

What’s your number one rule for taking a great selfie?

Take 50 pictures and choose one, you can’t go wrong.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

I do! I’m currently working on a ballet project at Eliot Smith Company in Northumberland, designing the dancers outfits with a dear friend of mine – the show is on November 12th. I’m also preparing for a few presentations and workshops with young adults/uni students this November and February next year.

Who are your style icons? 

Off the top of my head – Johnny Depp, William Cartier, FKA Twigs

Who’s your favourite fashion designer? 

I really enjoy the work of Bobby Abley, Florian Wowretzko and Riccardo Tisci.

Favourite place in London?

Shoreditch and Richmond. I like them both for different reasons, Shoreditch is lively, creative and there are so many cool, unusual haunts. Richmond is beautiful! Full of parks, Victorian buildings and has this unexplainable sense of tranquility – I used to live there!

If you could emulate the career of any of your idols who would it be and why? 

FKA Twigs. She’s insanely young yet talented, creative, versatile, down to earth and she works hard at what she does. She possesses all the qualities that inspire me and is a great example of what I want to be.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

I see myself living in a minimally styled vintage apartment in London with lots of space. I’d be living with a partner or creative flatmate, perhaps a dog and definitely lots of little plants to fill the spaces. I love plants!

Career wise I think I’ve been incredibly lucky to obtain both my businesses Paradice UK and Jamboy & Co, especially at my age. I never needed to do any courses to qualify for my jobs, as it all started out as a hobby when I began selling T-Shirts to make money for university the following year. I didn’t even want to do art or fashion at the time, I was planning on being a lawyer!
This taught me that work is not about the money, or having a job title that may sound impressive, it’s about doing all your hobbies and what you love. If you don’t wake up in the morning wanting to go to work because you’re passionate for what you do, then you’re completely wasting your time!
For this very reason I want to go back into education to study further both Fashion and Art at CSM or LCF, going on to obtain a degree so I can hopefully become an internationally successful Artist/Fashion Designer. I think I owe myself, my family and my own hard work this opportunity, as it’s not something I had the option to pursue in the past.
I also hope to open a few physical stores around the world for Paradice UK and my art store Jamboy & Co, that would be a dream come true.

 

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection? 

The charcoal Alpha Sweat is really nice! It was super comfortable and the material was beautiful. I also really liked the elongated Shawfield Scoop tee, it’s perfect for nights out and would go with most things.

I couldn’t live without… 

My morning coffee, without this I am unable to function.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

How do you juggle being a model and studying Law at Southampton?

Modelling is a lot of fun. I won’t do it often because education is foremost important to pursue my career, but every shoot I treat a rest day for my brain to have fun. Especially for blog shoots.

What are your tips for talking the ultimate selfie?

You need to have the perfect lighting and angle. When I get in the right selfie position, it’s as if I have no flaws anymore, I’m basically a cat fish.

Have you got any exciting projects coming up?

Unfortunately not, just the usual updating my blog and preparing for my assessed moot.

What can you do without during winter?

The cold

Favourite holiday destination?

I travelled South-East Asia this year and it was honestly the most I’ve ever felt at home. So anywhere in SE Asia would be ideal, but if I had to be specific, either Koh Rong Island or Otres Village in Cambodia.

If you could swap places with anyone you admire who would it be?

Angelina Jolie. She’s more human and woman than I will ever be.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

5 years time I would have hopefully finished my accelerated degree in law and ideally I would already have a graduate job.

Favourite piece from the Serge DeNimes AW15 collection?

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Self Belief Passion and positivity

How about your style in 3 words?

Relaxed & Unique (couldn’t think of a 3rd word)

Tell us about SBTV?

SBTV was a solution to a problem, at the time I didn’t think talented people from the streets were getting a fair shot at sharing their talent with mainstream audience, so I setup SBTV as a way for talented people to share their talents with the world at large.

How did you go from amateur filmmaker to making SBTV?

I never look at it like that, I’ve more looked at as a mission, an agenda to audiences to ensure they can see what is out there in it’s entirety.

SBTV was originally based around urban music. Which artists do you listen to on a regular basis?

I listen to everything you know and I know it sounds cliche but i never get hooked on one album I always keep listening to different artists. Obviously theres’s particular songs i like but honestly I don’t have any regulars.

I understand you are currently working on a new project. Tell us about your new site.

For me, over the years I’ve grown to realise the audience is more of a community than an audience, the site is about expanding more of a network/community based attitude. The opinions of the viewers matter; these need to form the way things are commissioned and explored and I also want to explore the realities of celebrity in a fresh way, to empower them editorially through the brand and platform to engage with communities they curate in a truly dynamic and authentic manner.

What do you hope to be doing in 5 years time?

Still building SBTV in other territories & branching out of music into other areas.

What would be the soundtrack to your life?

Panik Pop feat. Joke – Life Is A Journey

Who are your musical idols?

Michael Jackson

Who are your style icons?

Pharell & David Beckham

What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?

Serge Skull Sweat

Who is your Favourite designer?

What is your favourite spot in London?

Hmm. Simple, comfortable, natural.

When did you first know you wanted to be a musician?

I’ve enjoyed writing lyrics and rapping since about the age of 9, and it was something I always dreamed of doing. However, I never really believed it could be anything more than just a hobby. So being able to really give it a go as a career is something i’ve wanted since young, but never imagined could actually happen.

You have just released your new EP ‘warning light’, have you got any big projects coming up in the new feature? 

Yeah, ‘Warning Light’ was an EP, which aimed to serve as a taster of whats to come, along with my previous EP ‘Four Miles Further’, which I put out in June last year. I’m working on my debut album at the moment, which will hopefully be out at some point this year.

What would be your advise to an aspiring musician?

Work out what makes you different as an artist, what you stand for as a person, and then hold on to that. Don’t worry if people don’t get it straight away. It’s tempting to just follow what everyone else is doing, but if you can be innovative and unique, you’re on to something.

Which of your songs are you most proud of and why?

I think it would probably be have to be a song I wrote called ‘Close’. It’s about my mum, who is really important to me, and has been so supportive of me. She says I get my rapping skills from her, although i’m not sure what she’s basing that on!

Are you looking to do any collaborations in the near future?

Yeah, I love working with other artists, and i’ve been fortunate to work with some really cool people already. Hopefully that will continue, and i’ll be able to keep working with people that i’m a fan of.

What do you hope to be doing in 5 years time?

Hopefully i’ll still be doing music, in what capacity or on what level that may be, I don’t know. But I love making music, so that’s what I aim to be doing. I would love to start up my own project for young people too; a record label of sorts, which would aim to develop and mentor young people interested in creating music.

What would be the soundtrack to your life?

Mos Def – Black On Both Sides. I think that album captures almost every emotion I have felt at one time or another in life.

Who are your musical idols?

Nas and Eminem are probably the 2 rappers I look up to the most, in terms of lyricism. I think John Mayer and George Benson are incredible musicians, and they inspire me also.

Who are your style icons:

I’m not sure really. It’s not really something I think about a lot. But I do think David Beckham and David Gandy are super cool though.

What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?

That’s a tough question, cos I like a lot of the stuff. If I had to pick one piece though, it would probably be the Wolf hoodie.

Favourite spot in London?

I’m a bit of a History nerd, so it would have to be the Tower Of London. Who are your style icons:

Describe yourself in three words?

Forever an amateur

How about your style in 3 words?

Very little colour

When did you first know you wanted to be a model?

I didn’t, I guess. I got told to try it out and I was quite hesitant at that stage, this was 2 years ago. It never really occurred to me that I’d be able to model in any capacity. I got scouted in London through a shop window and it’s been non-stop ever since, I’m extremely lucky!

Have you got any big projects coming up?

I’m just about to work at the GQ Man Of The Year awards for Hugo Boss, in Hollywood. (That’s pretty cool)
Aside from that, I’ve got some big things coming with DIESEL, Whistles, Jigsaw, Topman and REISS, over the next few months. It still blows my mind that brands with such prestige; appreciate my work and want to collaborate on content with me.

What would be your advise to an aspiring model?

Go speak to an agency, that’s the first thing you should do. They’ll set your expectations and be realistic with you about your prospects. If you’re lucky, they’ll take you!

What do you think will be happening with you in the next 5 years?

Honestly, I have no idea. I’ve been really enjoying my transition from modelling into menswear blogging, it’s something I’m really passionate about and I’m loving every minute of it. Aside from that, I’m a director in LA supply brand Saint Rita Parlor, so I’ll be doing things with those guys for a long time. Who knows! It’s all a big whirlwind but I think I’ve got it under control, I think.

What song would be the soundtrack to your life?

Great question! I’d probably say a mixture between all of the movie soundtracks that Hans Zimmer has ever produced. I absolutely adore all of his work and he’s forever going to be my favourite musical influence.

Who inspires you?

My Grandfather, he was just the perfect role model for me, he taught me everything about life that I carry with me today. I owe the world to that man.

Who are your style icons?

Johan Lindeberg, Dylan Rieder. Both effortlessly brilliant. Distressing, relaxed cuts, worn-out pieces and bold outfits. They always look great.

What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?

I really love the block tee, it’s definitely my favourite!

Favourite spot in London?

I love the south bank, it’s super cool and a skateboarder’s paradise. Aside from that, I’m a big fan of the Queen of Hoxton, what a cute little pub that is.

Favourite spot in London?

I’d absolutely love to walk for Burberry, there’s something so prestigious and unattainable about their shows, especially as a bearded and tattooed model, I could never see myself doing it.
To shoot, I’d love to work for Prada, their campaigns are always beautiful and I’m a huge fan of their imagery.
