Like most of us, Donae’O misses the human contact of a pre-lockdown world.

(There was such a thing, believe it or not – and there will be again.) 

How much does he miss it?

So much that once it's finally lifted, the rapper plans to walk around Oxford Street and for a couple of hours. 

Fair play, that should certainly tick the human contact box. 

We'll save you a seat at the pub. 


What upcoming project(s) are you most excited about?

The upcoming projects I’m most excited about would be my album first and foremost.

Also, I’m excited to hear what Dutch has got to offer, I’d like to hear a Blanco project and I definitely want to hear a Drake album - I always want to hear a Drake album.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment?

My proudest professional accomplishment, has been to have a career for 20 years!

If you could change one thing about your career, what would it be?

I wouldn’t change anything about my career, I love my career the way it is man!

Outside of your family, who is / was your biggest inspiration?

Outside of my family, my biggest inspiration is probably Jay Z. He’s someone I’ve always respected as a talented writer and rapper but he just took his craft and he made a business out of it. Then he created a business to help other people and he just keeps growing.

Tell us something nobody knows about you…

If it wasn’t doing music I’d want to be a comedian!


How are you finding lockdown?

I’m finding the lockdown okay, some days I’m little bit demotivated, not sad but demotivated. But most days I’m alright.

I’ve got a routine which I stick to which helps me through it.

Best thing about lockdown?

The best thing about lockdown is that there’s no pressure to do anything anymore - you just have to do what you want to do.

Worst thing about lockdown?

The worst thing is not being around other human beings.

Top tip for surviving lockdown?

Top tip is to have a routine and stick to it - be disciplined.

If you could be locked down with one person, alive or dead, who would it be?

If I could be locked down with just one person it’d be the woman I’m with, my girlfriend.

What are you most looking forward to doing once lockdown is over?

The thing I’m most looking forward to doing is walking around Oxford Street - I’m going to go straight up there and walk around for a couple of hours as soon as this is over!
