Hie, Gene -Ohh. May you tell us where you’re from and how you got the name Gene Ohh?
My name is Gene O’Brian. I’m 26 years old. I’m from Lehighton, Pennsylvania in the U.S. I got my name Gene-Ohh because i always got the nickname Geno but when I started rapping people saw how good i was and were like “Ohh hes pretty good” so then my rap name became Gene-Ohh.
That’s great, so I understand you do Hip-hop. Are you underground or mainstream. Rather what type of message does your rap include mainly?
I am a underground artist. I have many messages because I can rap about anything. So my songs can be anything from peace to war, etc.
That’s wonderful, so do you perform or your music is just available for online downloads.
Well this is only my 2nd year of rapping. I have songs online to download for free. But I would love to perform live in front of a group of people. I need to find a place to perform at though.
That’s great. Which song would you say is your best so far and how much has the public accepted it?
I would have to say the publics favorite is my song Cigarillo featuring Blue J and Nemo. But my favorite which i think i did better at was my song Itchin featuring C-Frost.
That’s great. Do you plan on getting paid from rap music or it’s just a hobby you do?
I plan on getting paid and making it a career. I take music very seriously. And i love helping other artists and watching their music grow and get better.
Great song,I listened to Cigarillo myself. Gene’ Ohh how much of our African Hip-hop has reached you. Is there any hip-hop from Africa in circulation where you’re from?
Well I have heard music from all over the world including Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia.
That’s brilliant, so would you be keen on collaborating with some of our independent music artists, to strengthen relations.
I actually did a song called “The Foundation” featuring Dr. Koul who is from Geneva, Switzerland. Of coarse. I would love to collab with some of your artists. I like keeping my relations Worldwide.
That’s definitely great. I do personally know you’re amember of worldwide hip-hop connects. How did you come to know about that movement?
I actually don’t remember how I found out about them. I think if i remember i was looking for a promoter to be heard around the world and i found them and asked if they could promote me.
That’s great stuff, I am actually in the process of creating a directory of our artists so that they can get collaborations with other artists.
I’m proud to be apart of your movement. I will be releasing a lotta new songs soon. I’m hoping to release a cd in a year. And I would love to receive songs from your artists that i can listen to and share. I wanna come down to Zimbabwe and meet the artists and do a show.
