Amenofis Mitchell — Who Is DeQuiviante? The Story of the Artist that Plans to Shock the World
What’s your full name and where are you from?
My full name is Amenofis Mitchell and I am from Missouri City, Texas. But I was born in Panorama City, California right outside of LA.
Tell us a little about your business:
I am independent artist who found himself through his many talents. I started to see how others reacted to the art form I was producing and it inspired me to keep going. So much so that I started to realize who I was and that people were happy and supportive of who I was. I started to develop a sense of self-worth that ultimately lead me to where I am today, which is what I believe that I can change the narrative of how the world views black people through my forms of art. I am not limited to just creating songs, but also visuals, comedy, art, and sports. These are some of many of my talents. I believe in my abilities so much so that I am going to have one of the biggest impacts on the music career in a year or less. I have a vision and there is nothing that can stop me from doing what I set my mind to do, with or without a label’s help. As a matter of fact, if you see me playing in the NBA, please don’t be shocked, because this is something I planned on doing. 3. What makes you different as a person and also what separates you from the rest of your peers in your industry? The thing that separates me from the people in the industry is my mindset. I am not more talented than anyone because I see the talent and abilities in others. But one thing about me that sets myself apart from others, is my work ethic. In less than a year, less than 6 months I will put my city on the map for all talents so that the talent in my city will no longer be overlooked. I love to work, I grew up having to work for every single thing I have. I am not above anybody, but I’ll be damned if I let someone outwork me because that how I was taught. So sorry not sorry, that’s all I know. And because I know this, I am able to help everyone in a matter of time.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see me, being me, doing me, because that is what got me to where I am today so why wouldn’t I continue to do what works. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I see what me putting a little bit more work will do for me, so I will continue to outwork myself and maximize the opportunities I have because I know I am not in competition with anyone else, but only in competition with myself.
What legacy do you wish to leave behind?
I want people to learn from my experiences that you can do whatever you put your mind to. There are things I told myself that at first, I believed weren’t possible because of what others said to me. But now I know that having access to your true self is the biggest gift in the world because you can change the lives of the people you love. And because love was taught in my household, I don’t hate anyone, so in a matter of time I will be able to help everyone because I love people. And seeing others happy, is the fuel that makes me keep going because I’m happy when the people I love are happy.
