MadameNoire has officially had its own British Invasion with Singer/Songwriter and Producer Shakka! Nominated for numerous awards and gaining recognition from a number of critics, we wanted to know just how the 25-year-old was able to leverage his successful mix of Indie, Dub Reggae, Hip-Hop, Motown, and Garage music. So, of course, when he was in the States to shoot a music video and meet up with his New York fans, Shakka stopped by our office for some tea and to chat about how he became an overnight sensation.
Most known for his viral YouTube covers, Nike Fuel endorsement and charming smile, the Notting Hill native revealed how he got his initial start in the British music scene, if we’ll see him acting on the tele (TV for non-Brits) and what fans should expect for him in 2015. Check it out and his latest single, When Will I See You Again!
