Music for this Star comes from a place he can’t explain, it’s a spiritual process for him.

Babatunde Akinleye’s dedication and such amazing understanding at a very young age caused him to stand out. He gained a small fan base then, using only the resources he had. He first picked up a pen to write after hearing the Kanye West song Jesus walks. He remembers vividly it was on an old radio that had a tape recorded so he was able to record the
song and it just blew his mind. You see, before Kanye, all other rappers
out there made it hard for someone in my shoes to think of doing music, that
was the spark that led to the fire.
Babatunde Akinleye was also inspired to make music by an artist named Jay-Z. But he is still, to this day, among the main reasons why he started making music seriously.
