An Interview With Wala Why

Check out the interview between Chairman/CEO of iTunes Exposure James K. Moore and Wala Way and up and coming artist.


JAMES: Thanks for taking the time to sit down with me and conduct this interview.


WALA WHY: It’s my pleasure.


JAMES: Ok, let’s get started. When and why did you start music/entertaining?

WALA WHY: It’s been about 2 years for me in this music industry.  I started off just playing around on my MacBook, learning different music production software when I moved to Las Vegas. I bought a mic, a keyboard and some speakers and started freestyling in the studio that I built.  I put my songs on my social network sites. People really enjoyed them and I started to build a fan base. It was crazy how it all happened so fast. I kept working and started writing songs and decided to make a career out of music. People love the beats and the message in the music. I just wanted to send a message to mankind through my music.

JAMES: How would you define your style?

WALA WHY: Sun Music which is a combination of afro beat, afro trap, hip-hop, R&B and trap music.

JAMES: What was the first type of music you listened to?

WALA WHY: West African

JAMES: Is your family musically inclined?

WALA WHY: No, just myself.

JAMES: Which famous artists do you admire? Why?

WALA WHY: I used to admire many artists but the only one I currently admire is Wala Why.

JAMES: Which famous artists have you learned from?

WALA WHY: Migos and Johnny Cinco.

JAMES: Have you been in competitions? Won any prizes?

WALA WHY: I don’t compete. I only create.

JAMES: OK, I can respect that.

JAMES: Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV?

WALA WHY: No performances just music, videos and inspirational quotes on social media.

JAMES: What advice would you give to beginners who are new to the industry?

WALA WHY: Stay true to your soul. Stay original don’t give in to the industry.

JAMES: Where do you see the music industry in the next 5 years?

WALA WHY: I see it out of the hands of the monopolistic “big” record labels and in the hands of original independent artists and newer “smaller” record labels.

JAMES: What wouldn’t you do?

WALA WHY: Sell my soul.

JAMES: I hear you on that.

JAMES: Professionally what’s your goal?

WALA WHY: My goal in music is to bring enlightenment, unity, peace and unconditional love to humanity.

JAMES: What’s your artistic outlook on life?

WALA WHY: I choose to find peace, happiness and growth in every situation and stage of life.

JAMES: Wise words.

JAMES: Describe a real-life situation that inspired you?

WALA WHY: Everyone doubting me and telling me I would never make it was my biggest inspiration.

JAMES: What obstacles or hurdles did you have to overcome to make it to where you are today?

WALA WHY: I have been way ahead of the music industry. My songs can turn one from darkness into a life of enlightenment. I talk about the Sun in almost each song I record. I talk against religion and other forms of social control and spiritual/mental manipulation of the masses. People fear what they don’t understand. This sort of music scares the ordinary people in society. I had to overcome the temptation of saying what society wants to hear.

JAMES: It’s been a pleasure talking to you and getting to know more about you. I’m definitely a fan of your music and look forward to hearing about your next project.

WALA WHY: It was a pleasure to sit down and talk to you.
