MMPB : Hi O-Gun, can you introduce yourself for the readers of the Pemba City Blog , and tell us since when you are in the music business ?

O-Gun : I’m one of the singers in Team Lobey. I’m 25 yrs old.  I’m a song writer, singer, rapper and producer. I started making music at a very young age. I recorded my first song when I was 15. I started off with my cousin Freedom, in Freedom army, and been at it since.

MMPB : If you could cite 3 artists/musicians who are your main source of inspiration/reference, and why ? What are you listening to in general ?

O-Gun : Bruno Mars : I really love his style and story telling. He’s an all around artist that I really like.
Bob Marley :  a legend and one of my main inspirations. I’ve been listening to Bob Marley since I was a kid and it was the Legend CD that was the first cd I actually bought in my life.
Michael Jackson : definitely one of my biggest inspirations, also he was an all around amazing artist and performer.  These guys definitely inspire me to make good music.

Nowadays, I listen to Bruno Mars,  Trey Songz, Drake. I really love R&B, and alternative such as Nickel Back, Maroon 5, etc but I also love my hip hop lol that’s my first love.

MMPB : What’s in the pipeline for O-Gun for the rest of the year  ?
