Lie to me

Lie to me


Tell us about yourself and your music

John Bosco is my real name and my artist’s name. Born in West Africa Ghana, that’s where my passion for music started. Grew up listening to hip pop, Afrobeats and grime music. Moved to Chicago in my teens and decided to take music serious in my early 20’s. I wanted to stand out as an artist cause the industry is flooded with lotta musicians so the best and original way I could do that is influencing my music with a few genres I grew up listening to which is Afrobeats and grime.

Talk to us more about your latest release

My latest song “lie to me” was written after I tried a couple of times to get my ex-girl back. In a very long time, I never felt for a girl as much as I did for this ex-girl. And the best way I could let it out of my soul was making a song about it. Do people keep asking “ did she lie to you”? No, she didn’t she lie to me literally but my the whole vibe and connection we had lied to me.

What inspired you to write this release?

I was inspired to write this song because that was the final way I could emotionally let everything out of me. Anything that really hits me emotionally has to come out as a song. This song was also inspired by the combination of African Afrobeats and American pop culture that’s why I had an r&b singer as a feature to help diversify it.

Describe the writing and recording process

The writing and recording process of this song was easy. I didn’t do too much thinking, my emotions lead me throughout the entire process because at that point I still had a feeling for my ex I had to pour it all out through this song. I still tried to keep this song less personal and make it sound a little more mainstream.

Any plans to release a video?

Any plans to hit the road?

Next year I definitely want to hit the road and connect with my fans but first need to find the right manager to work with. Not exactly sure what months or time of the year but I’ll keep my fans posted ones I get everything figured out. 

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?

People like different and that’s exactly who I am. So I don’t really have to try and stand out I just have to do me. My sound, my fashion, and culture are all different from what people here are used to so I just have to keep doing me and I’ll automatically stand out,

Who have you been listening to lately?

A lot of Afrobeats and American artists like kid ink, the weekend fabulous and also British rappers like skepta and stormzy.

Who are your biggest influences?

My biggest influence is Davido from Nigeria

wizkid from Nigeria

Mr eazi from Ghana

Drake kid ink Nas

koffee and Sean Kingston from Jamaica


Tell us about your passions

Apart from being passionate about vocal sounds I’m making beats is also one of my passion, haven’t had a lot of time to really get into that but that’s definitely on my list.

What else is happening next in your world?

In next my world I’m setting up my own record label and signing artists with talent but no funds to proceed on their dreams. There’s a lot of artists out there with phenomenal talent but no funds to work on it and I can’t wait to help them.



Thanks for an awesome interview, John Bosco
