Me'Mo is #Flyah

Me'Mo is an African native, born and raised in the western part of africa "Nigeria". Me'Mo is by profession a software engineer, but he's love for music was always going to pull him away into the more urban euphoria which he enjoys.
 Classified as a NERD and social outcast growing up, Me'Mo was never one of the cool kids, hence he usually always finds himself backed against the wall. With very few friends, he was often found alone with he's thoughts and which helped mold this creative genuis as an artist. Influenced by Comics, video games, Cartoons and Anime, he created a virtual world which would later play a huge role in his music.
Me'Mo was first introduced to the world of music through he's dad who was a choir and lead vocalist at their local church, and also through the years of listening to classics from the greats "Michael Jackson (who was the kids idol growing up), Lionel Richie, James Brown, The Commodores" all who will later be a huge influence in helping him become a more diverse musician. 
Me'Mo's first ever musical experience was through he's cousin "Tozer" who at the time was learning the art of producing. Tozer came back home from America for the holidays and brought with him a demo CD to market in Nigeria, only to find out he's cousin "Me'Mo" was also interested in making music.
they both teamed up and worked on Me'Mo's first ever studio project "Street Hype" in 2006 which was he's first mixtape. Street hype had very little success, but that didn't deter Me'Mo's dreams and ambitions to further chase he's dreams. In 2008 the kid put out another mixtape cd "Tha Epidemic", after months of improving on his writing skills and total delivery, he was back in the studio again to work on some more music. Like every kid with ambitious parents, Me'Mo was faced with the decision to get an education or drop out of school to pursue a career in music. But that still was never going to slow him down, in between studying as a software engineer, he still made time to make music. in 2010 he dropped another mixtape "My Boombox" hosted by UK's tope DJ "DJ Sole". this time my boombox was successful, hitting the front page of datpiff and also making it to well over a 100 different blog sites, which would mark the start of a new transition for him.
After graduating as a software engineer, Me'Mo decided to focus more on what he always loved doing, making music. He reached out to long time producer "Smitty for Track'Bangas" who was also the producer for "Tha Epidemic and My Boombox" to record "Dark Empire" in 2011, and immediately a followup with "The Music Experience Vol-1". the music experience introduced Me'Mo to the world, the cd would go on to sell 20,000 hard copies. high from the success of the music experience Me'Mo decided it was time to take he's musical career to the next level, so he moved to atlanta right after he dropped "Finding Me'Mo" which is title date the most successful project he has released. Moving to Atlanta Me'Mo linked up with long time producer smitty for trackbangas and friend Fedarro and has since been working on he's first studio EP "The Music Experience Vol-2" with the first single of the EP "The Weekend" now out on iTunes.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
