The Chief Keeps Rolling with New Music.

By  | 

The Chief is a rising artist coming out of PG County, Maryland with strong Nigerian roots. We stumbled upon his music and decided to learn a bit more about him in the interview below.

Where are you from?

I’m Nigerian, born and raised in PG County (Prince George’s County, MD).

Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of music?

Outside of music, I’m a writer first, I’m always writing. I’m an actor as well so I’m always auditioning too. I have my own clothing brand Manifestor Apparel, and I’m part owner of Riff & Tunji’s Suya Chop Shop.

What first got you into music

I’ve been around music my whole life but I started taking music seriously in 2016 while pursuing my acting career. I was at a low point where I would audition and not book. While working at Nike of Santa Monica I met Chicago producer J Trap Beatz and the homie Preme. They kept pushing me to stay creative outside of acting.

What’s next for you?

Expanding and elevating the Chief Tunji/Manifestor brand is my focus right now. My goals is to keep creating quality listening experiences and connect with my supporters. I would love to be on tour, performing my songs in front of thousands.

Any additional information/key notes-
I am a Manifestor, who is a person who creates from nothing.
