My Africa Podcast, partnering exclusively with Pulse brings you another compelling interview; this time Timi Dakolo shares his passage into music.
After his friend brought a Sony Walkman with a Michael Bolton tape to school, his musical epiphany began. After purchasing Craig David’s “Born to Do It” and listening to it repeatedly, he decided to get into music.
During his interview on My Africa podcast, the crooner reveals he’s been studying for a masters in song writing at Berklee College of Music. He explained that since he’s going to be in this industry for a long time, “the ordinary just wouldn’t do”, hence his continued quest for knowledge.

Also known as 'The Voice', he shares his first contact with music, childhood experiences, and his songwriting process. Listen to his story here.
