Mukhy Reflects On The Inspiration Behind “Posh Life”
Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Posh Life’, Mukhy goes on to say:
“I recorded ‘Posh Life’ after an ex attempted to make me feel jealous. I don’t really emit that type of energy, so instead I walked up to the guy next to her and said the opening line. ‘See the gyal on your shoulder, that’s my old spice’. Safe to say he did not take it well. The braggadocious feeling stuck with me when I got to the studio. So ‘Posh Life’ was the result of that session. Essentially though, ‘Posh Life’ is all about having a good time and living a good life, staying away from envy, bad vibes and negative energy, and exuding positivity”.
In the midst of the pandemic, he began producing songs, incorporating afrobeats, UK rap, and R&B cache to tremendous success. Now, with a well-received EP under his belt and another on the way this year on the heels of “Posh Life”; the rest is history, as they say. His fresh new release serves as an invitation to all of us. To join him in living the good life this year! Don’t believe me? Press play on the visuals here! Lastly, let us know what you think here at KAZI Magazine.
