Hi Rukmani, Can you tell us more about who you are, where you come from and how old you are ?
I am Rukmani. Rukmani is very expressive, I like to express myself in the way that I write, in the way that I sing, in the way that I love and relate with people. I am half Nigerian and Indian. My mum is Indian and my dad is from Edo state, Nigeria. I am 23 years old.
If you had to choose a color and a word to describe yourself what would it be ?
For the colour, I am going to say Blue, because when most people hear the colour blue they think sad but Blue is a beautiful colour. The word to describe me would be spontaneous, and also blessed, I am so sorry one word can’t describe me 😂.
In your opinion, What is your honniest song ?
if it means my favourite song then it has to be "LOVIN", but I pick my songs based on what I am feeling emotionally at that time, so for today I am tilting towards "Lovin".
What is the story behind that sound ? Usually what is your creative process ?
Right now, I believe I wrote Lovin for today’s me. It's describing what I am going through right now because my Lovin messed up people’s system. Lovin was actually a freestyle but I had not put in all the words but most of it was already there, so after freestyling , I rewrote it and then I re-recorded it.
What is the music or artist you're addicted to these days ?
Right now, I am really feeling Doja cat, I have been on the scarlet album, also digging the scarlet vibe. I have even gone as far as listening to get old works, because I believe she’s just a genius, lyrically and everything.
