I’m very glad to write about such a talented artist, I’ve been a fan of Mark Asari for some time now and just felt I must introduce Mark to the world. So I had a quick catch up with the wonderful Mark Asari. For those of you who may not know he is Ghanaian UK born Artist.
The interview went like this:
Ok I see your last name is Asari, are both your parents of Ghanaian Descent?
Yep both my parents are from Ghana. My surname is actually spelt Asare but for my stage name, Ive always spelt it as ‘Asari’ only because people always pronounced it wrong, and also it looks better on paper.
So how young are you?
I’m 22 years old
I’m a major fan of your music myself, and wonder what makes your style and approach unique from artists?
Thank you! I guess its my tone itself, once people hear me, they know its me. Also I grew up listening to a lot of songs produced by Rodney jerkins and written by Lashawn Daniels amongst others so their influence I guess comes out in my songs. I Don’t really think about it too much it just comes out that way.
Would you say your culture has inspired you in your music career?
Yea definitely, I love hip-life. I love the rhythms and the flow how they rap/sing, I definitely wanna incorporate that in my music, it just feels good and makes you wanna dance!
I’m sure you’ve heard about the new Dance craze Azonto, rate yours 1-10.
Yup! You know what honestly my Azonto is lacking abit, I need more practice still! I’d give myself a 5 out of 10.
You have a uniquely special voice! What actually inspired you to break out and show the world your voice. Instead of reserving it?
Thanks again ! I just love music and singing is apart of me and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do from young. I was shy when people would ask me to sing but my friends would push me to do so and they’d say if you have a gift it’s no good to keep it to yourself, gotta share it!
When you sing does it feel releiving, does it relax and sooth you or?
When I sing I feel at ease lol
Tell your fans and the team about your latest single/ album and how we can find it?
I’m actually in a group called Encore consisting of another singer and a rapper. We’ve dropped the video for our single ‘fun last night’, and its out officially on the 26th on Feb but available for pre order on itunes..
Me FiRi GHANA are proud to say we appreciate such a unique artist, and ask Mark Asari to continue to shine !! You Guys can catch up with him on twitter @Markasari @wantmoreencore
