Ronald Mkiza took some time to answer my questions so that a wider audience may get to know him and his music better. I think if you give him just a few short minutes, you will not only like his music but like this modest, talented artist, as well.
Ronald Mkiza is an Afro Danish artist based in Copenhagen. A common theme throughout his music has alway been based on life experiences and the stories those experiences generate. Whether it be related to lost love, failure, pain or success, Mkiza consistently & sensibly interjects all of those experiences into his music.
Ronald Mkiza also loves to explore his own capabilities. This talented artist has released 9 jazz influenced mixtapes that are available on Soundcloud, Spotify, iTunes and other music platforms. He has also provided a lyrical onslaught to a trap record. As we learn more about Mkiza, it is evident that he easily finds comfort outside of the box.
With inspirations such as Tupac Shakur and Kanye West it is clear to see where this artist wants to go with his music, music that is inspirational.
