Tell us about you:

My name is Keelo Hussein, I’m a twenty-two year. old artist from Mobile, Alabama. Why do you love what you do?

I love what I do because creating music has always been a part of my life even growing up. I played instruments in the church every Sunday . Not only because It’s a blessing to have this great gift, but mostly because music is my therapy. It’s how I express my emotions and my feelings . No matter what I’m going through I can always create a song, and feel better. I feel like I’m actually doing something great. Whether it’s for me or other people. It’s an escape from other thoughts in my head. It’s no better feeling than being able to touch other people that I don’t even know. from my story all over the world. What makes me different ? I have my own style , my own way of creative thinking. I know how to take my real life situations and make others feel it as if it was them, no matter if they’re going through it or not. I’m one of the realest people I know. Im very humble, i’ll never forget. where I started from. If I was to ever go Hollywood , nothing will change me or make me forget where I come from. Nothing will break me. Money won’t make me. Where I see myself in five years? In five years I see myself. financially stable from doing what I love to do. Five years from now I plan to have a family of my own. Passing down my legacy to my kids. Also want to have my clothing brand MudbabiesLLC doing great. I want to be able to teach other people , what it’s like to come from nothing to having it all. If I can do it so can they. You just have to believe in yourself and never give up. I just want to be the best version of myself until i can’t get any better. What do you want to accomplish in life? In life I want to be successful not only with my music but with my other businesses as well. Revenue doesn’t just come in from one direction and stop , it flows from multiple sources. I also want to be a successful screenwriter because I love creative writing. I feel like I can make some movies or something. I want to be able to say I made it and never have to punch the clock for anyone other than myself. I want to be able to give to my community and family I want to achieve something everyone can benefit from not just me

What I bring to the industry ? What I bring is my unique style I’m very versatile not only can I rap I can also sing and write my own lyrics . I actually talk about reality in my music I don’t talk about just anything . These days artist talk about what’s popular and not what’s real. That’s why everything sounds the same as if you’ve already heard it before. Everyone is looking at popularity not talent. What do I want to be remembered by ? I want to be remembered by me being my authentic self. “The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith” Billy Graham .I want people to remember me as the person that stayed true to herself, a person who didn’t change or try to fit an image just for fame. I want my words to actually touch people as much as they touch me because , that’s the reason I do what I do today. That’s what makes me the person I am. I want to walk in a room and be able to uplift people’s spirt just from the grace of my presence. I want to make people smile, and help motivate them to succeed in their own creative way. Being someone’s inspiration is the best accomplishment I can ask for. There’s no greater feeling, than actually knowing, that my story starts a new chapter in someone else’s. That is why I’ll always keep this passion for what I do. It keeps me going.
