Indie Mixtape Interview with Fuse ODG
Indie Mixtape: How long have you been recording it for and what’s been the process?
Fuse ODG: It’s hard to say how long the album has taken to get recorded because I make music every day! It’s taken me a while and it’s been a journey. It doesn’t just take sessions to record it, it’s about living a story and understanding the motive behind it. In a week I can record up to 15 songs and that’s almost an album, but it’s about choosing the right songs to tell the right story. I’ve grown from recording this album, I feel mature as a person. I’ve learnt so much about my own history, so I hope that this album allows people to learn about their roots, especially people of African descent. I hope I can showcase my culture to the world and make them want to come to Africa and see what I’m talking about.
IM: The new album is called New Africa Nation, can you tell me a bit more about what that means to you and how does this progress from your TINA work and message?
F: The previous album TINA (This is New Africa) was about changing the perception of Africa and changing the mentality of Africans and how people see Africa. It was more like a mentality, whereas this album is more for lifestyle. Now we have proud Africans and people who have love for Africa and the perception is gradually changing.
Everything right now is becoming tangible. Rather than talking about mentality, this album is more about lifestyle and the reality of the new Africa. It is really encouraging people to continue to love ourselves, and use this pride we have to build a nation.
