AWARD-WINNING Hip-hop star Asaph real name Tafadzwa Tarukwana who recently landed a job at Skyz-Metro is having a time of his life behind the microphone.
“My experience at Skyz Metro FM has been good so far. Radio is a world full of endless possibilities so I’m interested to see where I’ll be in a year or two, especially if I work hard and people learn to love my show,” he said.
He feels that being on radio will grow him and it will also be a learning curve for him on what is really required in music.
“Yes, I think being at Skyz Metro will grow me as an artiste to a certain extent because I’ll get to understand a lot of behind the scene workings of a radio station and what they look for in music but the move is more beneficial to Asaph the brand. I’m now more than a rapper or musician,” said Asaph.
All his music lovers and listeners should not worry as he said he will be able to juggle both his music career and his job at the radio station.
“I’m going to divide my time professionally and equally between the spaces. Plus my show is only on Friday nights so I’ve got enough time to be on radio and in studio and on stage, being needed elsewhere means that bookings would have to be worth it and a lot more professional. When all you do is music promoters treat you like you’re desperate,” he said.
He also vowed that he will burn the midnight oil to put local artistes in the limelight as he has set sights on turning up-and-coming artistes into recognisable names and acts.
