Guest singer/ rapper/ songwriter YO visits KA

Years 8 and 9  were treated to an afternoon of music and talk from singer/rapper/songwriter Yomi Maison Davies (also known as YO) just before Easter. Students waved their hands in the air, sang along with some of the songs performed, and danced. There was a lot of dancing (well done year 8!).

The joyous mood turned serious as YO described his life growing up and the troubles he faced, but how he ultimately overcame these problems by making the decision and taking responsibility to get his life onto the right track. It was an important message and one we can all learn from. 

Once the performance was over, Arts Award students in years 8 and 9 and some of the BTEC Performing Arts class sat down with Yomi, asking him questions about his career in music to date, what inspired him, his production process and much more. A favourite quote taken away from the interview, when asked why he had chosen music as a career; 'I didn't choose music, music chose me'.
