Hey friends, Faith here again. I introduce to you one of the gospel crews I love and admire so much S.O.C (Saintz Of Christ). They are amazing preachers of the good news and their choice of tool is street hip hop music. I spent some time with them both shooting and asking them questions and here is what they had to say….
Q1. Tell me a brief introduction about yourselves
S.O.C is a gospel music group born by the saintz dance group back in 28/12/2010, the group consists of 3 talented and God fearing artists namely EDWARD GATHERU aka EDU DONTEZ,..AMOS KIMANI aka AMOH-MUGIKUYU,..JOSEPH NDAKA aka NJOSE.
Q2. Describe your style of music in 3 words
A It’s simply a GOSPEL HIPHOP MTAA-ISH STYLE OF MUSIC.(that’s what we call it)
Q3. What inspires your music?
We are basically inspired by the kind of stuff that happens in the hood day in day out, we sing about it and hope 2 minister 2 the youth thru it.
Q4. What makes you stand out from the other upcoming artistes?
I personally believe that we stand out from every 1 else since there’s honestly no other artist anywhere who can compose humorous lyrics and still manage 2 minister 2 the youth like we do…i believe we have Gods favor that’s y we blend in with every 1 easily.
Q5. Can you describe the process you undergo through in creating your music?
Its quite an experience when composing music since we are 3 so basically we have 2 meet and discuss what the topic is all about and who we are targeting 2 reach out 2 thru that song then after that we have 2 meet with our mentor (JACKSON KIARIE) and he corrects us where necessary and after all that we now sell the whole concept 2 our producer (CARENA)…the out-come z always mind blowing!
Q6. What is you ultimate goal in your music career?
Our goal is 2 draw the line between gospel music and secular music (you are either hot or cold)….we are all about painting the word Jesus into people’s hearts…
Q7. Have you received any award and which 1s?
YES! we’ve bin blessed with 1 gospel award which is THE SAMA AWARDS MUSIC GROUP OF THE YEAR 2011.
Q8. If you were to do a collabo, who would you like it to be?
Q9. Who is your role model?
We always reflect our music with what LECREA and his whole group the 116 crew are up to, so those guys are definitely our role models in music….so u can imagine the feeling we had after being blessed 2 the extend of sharing the same stage with them last year at the unashamed concert…..
Q10. Any last word for your fans?
THANKS 2 every 1 4 the much love THEYVE SHOWN 2 US SINCE DAY 1…its all about Jesus n him alone is whom we should all look up 2…thank u again.
