HCM Interviews Upcoming Artist Walewest

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Walewest. The name actually came up in a very funny way. So I moved to Canada in 2014 spring & then I was on the phone with my buddy, telling him about the different ends in the city, then I mentioned I was moving to the west end. He shouted wale in the west, the name sounded good to my ears. I then put two & two together and came up with Walewest. That was how the name came up.

HCM. What made you first realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Walewest. It was a summer holiday I think in 09, my parents moved to a new apartment then. So my boy Lexi Beatz came to spend some time at my parents’ house, he started playing different types of beats & I started rapping & it felt so good. From that moment I knew I wanted to make music.

HCM. How would you describe your music?
Walewest. My music is more focused on AFROBEATS & I make music that makes people dance & shake body. I believe music should cheer you up & make you forget your worries. That’s why I try to make danceable songs.

HCM. What makes you different from other artists in the industry?
Walewest. I believe music is an art of expression, everyone expresses it in a different way. I can’t actually compare my music to other artists, because we are all unique in our own way.

HCM. What projects do you have in the making currently and what are your plans for the near future?
Walewest. I recently drop KILODE ft Tee Flawless. You can go check it out https://linktr.ee/Walewestmusic. I’m working on a new project that would come out by July.
