“SUPERSONIC BLAZE” a.k.a “Mr. How Much Is Money [HMIM]” is a versatile artiste drenched in the hip-hop culture. Listening to “Supersonic Blaze” is like hearing the different components of music in one artist. Existing in the space between modern hip-hop, afro-beat, pop and R&B; his music somehow ties tradition together, while placing his own distinct personality on it. And in the tradition of the greatest artists, he raps [and sings] straight from the heart without hesitation and with a commitment to excellence above all, making him a unique artist on the rise.
Born “Precious Ewa“, to strict parents that wouldn’t allow his ambition to become a musician drown his academics, he is currently pursuing a degree [Audio Production] at SAE, Dubai. “Supersonic Blaze” was born in Lagos, but he grew up in different countries where his exposure to different cultures has helped in moulding him into a versatile artiste. His Journey has not been an easy one combining academics with music but his focus and determination knows no limit.
His adventurous nature is one key element that drives him towards his desire. His love for comic books and video games is something he doesn’t pretend about and that’s the secret behind his stage name, “Supersonic Blaze“; “Supersonic” is the speed of sound, while “Blaze” means fire. Taking up music professionally in 2010 to establish his career as an artiste, he hooked up with music producers that could connect with his multi-layered style of music and express it through their well-crafted beats. He started the recording process which has so far delivered many songs and has also improved his rapper/singer/songwriter identity.
“I’m a rapper and singer at heart, and as a producer I understand that the instrumental is a fundamental part of a song”.
In 2011, he dropped a mix tape titled “SUPERSONIC HYDRO Vol. 1”, a compilation of free style sessions laced with classic hip-hop instrumentals which received a lot of credible reviews. This year he wooed the commercial market with two singles “EBAENO” and “MAFIPARA” which are enjoying airplay on radio and DJ mixes. | ENJOY!!!
