Demetre Durham

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Demetre Durham is an actor, dancer, cartoonist, Influencer, and entrepreneur who have risen to fame in a very short time. He had acting roles on the HBO series ‘Insecure‘& Amazon’s ‘Dancers For Sale’. Nothing scares the actor, he’s the type of person who loves acting and lives for entertaining others even if he gets bruised in the process.

We are privileged to get to know Him better in this interview:

Hi Demetre Durham! It’s an honor to speak with you today.

Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story? How did you get to where you are today?

My name is Demetre Durham. Originally from Brooklyn, NY finished high school and college in Nashville, TN. I went to college for Digital Animation since I wanted to be a cartoonist. While in college I began to grow my hair out to be curly and found my signature look. This is where I started using natural hair products and learning more about to take care of natural hair. This would start my influencer journey.

I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

As an influencer, it’s always a challenge getting your content out where everyone can see it. You have post content consistently and engage with your followers. You also have to constantly be on top of making relevant content to build your following. Me finding time to do all of this I’m whole still managing my career, wasn’t easy. After some serious organizing & planning, I was able to balance everything a lot better.

Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?

As far as influencing, I’m finding my niche in the natural hair world. I’m a man with natural hair which you don’t see a lot of on social media. People should work with me became I’m such a versatile influencer. I also can not only relate to the whole natural hair world, but also give the guys someone to look up to.

What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

I’d say you have to be consistent and good with your time management. Social media can be like a whole job! Find what you’re good at and target that audience!

Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

Success to me setting a goal for yourself and accomplishing it. It doesn’t have to mean fame or fortune but just reaching a major goal that you worked hard for.

What’s next for you?

I plan on working with plenty of other brands and reaching a wider audience

Kazuki Tikaji

Today we had a great time with the famous yet young guitarist, Kazuki tokaji. He is an ultimate instrument scientist. Unluckily we had a short time together yet we had an amazing conversation. Let us share it with you guys too.

So Kazuki, tell us more about you and your journey of stepping into this profession?

“My name is Kazuki tokaji, I was born in 1995. I am from Japan. I grew up there and started playing guitar when I was too young and got my first guitar at that very age. I am a session guitarist, demonstrator, guitar teacher. Also, I play guitar for a singer, band, music festival & event.  I was barely seven years old when I used to play guitar. This love of music kept increasing with time as I had a great passion for music.”

So what is your music genre?

“Well, I am a professional lead and rhythm guitarist who specializing in pop, rock, and metal. Also, I am an award-winning guitarist and now I almost have an experience of 17 years of playing guitar.”

Kazuki Tikaji

Is there any influencer who inspired you?

“Yeah. These are, Prominently, MR. Big, Dream Theater, and Skid Row & Kazuya Yoshii.”

So do you play with the random instrument or are there any specific ones that you use?

“Yeah I use the selective instrument, just like Hughes & Kettner equipment that includes:

  • Grandmaster deluxe 40
  • TM 212
  • FSM -432 MK III
  • TRIAMP MARK

“I must say that Hughes & Kettner’s Triamp is the best amp ever made. Since I was a little child, I always wanted to play one and now it’s like a big dream of mine has come true. I am an endorser for GHS strings company & Hughes & Kettner.”

We have come across knowing that you studied music. Is that true? Also, we have heard you worked with many big names of the industry-

“Yeah, I studied music too. It was about 2017 when I started studying at the musician’s institute in Hollywood and also I performed with some famous musicians as a student. Some famous names from these are Steve Vai, Marty Friedman, Julia Lage, Hedras Ramos, Tim piece and Masaya Muro”.

You have come a long way in your successful career. What recognition did you observe in your music career?

Well as a solo artist I toured a lot and also made several appearances on T.V on the national level. Also, I appeared on the radio. I was also a guest at various Los Angeles events, one of them was the sunset jam and the other was Jam Night.

You have been extremely excited about your latest single lately, what is it about, tell us something about it, please!!

Yes, I have recently released my newest single. It was a collaboration between keyboardist Derek Sheinian of Sons of Apollo & Kitsune drummer Sebastian Konnnackel and me. you can also say that it is a metal song with a real edge. Do listen to it and share it with your friends too. Everyone is going to love it. My track will be seen exploring the sentiments of loss and uncertainty of overcoming grief.

 It also features my signature hard-driving guitar stylings. It perfectly blends the rhythm and blues and punk rock. It is available on iTunes, Spotify & elsewhere.

That’s amazing Kazuki, so tell us where should people approach you to get in touch and keep up with your news feed?

This song and vide takes you n a journey that has you thinking about that special person while you sing the catchy hook… I NEED A TIME MACHINE. Abryon or Abree as his loyal fans call him. The Charlotte NC Born writer producer and vocalist is most proud of TIME MACHINE because it was written in memory of his grandmother and close cousin. He poured al of the pain he felt from the lost of those two very important people into the track.
