An Inspirational story of ‘Artist, Engineer and Producer Michael M Jeni’




Journalist- Hello !!! How are you ? 

“Hello, I’m doing well! Thank you for having me!” 

Journalist-Please, Introduce yourself? “Where should I start?

I’m Michael M Jeni, a “AfroPop/AfroBeat artist based in Iowa born in Idaho, umm my favorite color is red, and music is my passion. I’m always nervous doing these interviews.”

Journalist-What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?

“Music has always been apart of my life since birth. I start and end my day with music everyday. My love for music came at a the age of 3 if I’m correct. My parents used to tell me stories that I would imitate dance moves, and singing from artists like Michael Jackson, Koffi Olomide, and that’s where it all started. Even going through elementary to high school I played the violin, I was in honors choir, and was able to learn music theory which helps with everything I do music wise today. Fast forward to 2015 I lost my mother to cancer, I had to find different ways to channel emotions that I was feeling so I turned to writing music, and here we are today. Overtime hearing peoples reactions about my music, and how it helped them through a situation, or how it inspires them, that’s what let me know I’ve chosen the right path, no matter how long it takes. Music is my outlet to express myself and things I go through, if I didn’t have music, I honestly wouldn’t be here and that’s a fact”

Journalist-Tell us about your new single. And what’s the story behind it?

“My latest single “Tokooos II” (Good Vibes II) was inspired by one of my idols Fally Ipupa, he’s an African artist from Congo! His music amongst others like Koffi Olomide, Chris Brown, Michael Jackson, Anita Baker, Eric Bellinger, and others inspires the music I make today. This particular single gives a summer vibe, it’s uptempo, groovy, makes you want to dance a bit. This song tells a story about wanting to vibe with someone again that you know or have history with, that one person that makes you feel a certain way. You know? Someone that you truly vibe with. When you hear this song it should put a smile on your face”

Journalist-What makes your music unique?

My style of music is different, as mentioned before, my style is “AfroPop/AfroBeat, in Iowa, that is rare, my sound is rare and different, which I don’t mind, it’s me. I have to do what’s authentic and raw, and my African Rwandan heritage is me, minus the politics and issues in Rwanda. Growing up I was afraid to let my peers and others know was African, I was bullied because of it, today I have a greater appreciation and understanding of my culture.

Journalist- What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

“Trust yourself and the process. Always remain humble, and be patient. Timing is everything, don’t rush your art for anybody, money is NEVER the end goal. You’ll feel every emotion doing this, you’ll have days where you get no sleep, you’ll have days where you cry, your angry, happy, you’ll even have days where your alone, you feel like no one understands you or what your trying to accomplish, but it’s all a balance, always remember there’s a purpose why your doing music, more importantly, never give up, finish the race strong.”

Journalist-And any particular artist/band you would like to collaborate with in the future?

One dream collaboration would be with Fally Ipupa, his artistry, and how he approaches his craft is unique! He practices the method of pushing yourself beyond your limits and challenging yourself. That’s inspirational.

Journalist-Any upcoming projects?

“Right now we’re about to begin a new era. In a Couple months the music video for “Tokooos II” (Good Vibes II) will be released and directly after that, the “King” Era starts…. “King” is the title of my new EP and the first single from my new EP is titled “C’est Moi” (It’s me). I named my EP “King” because of what my middle and last name means, no cocky shit just to be clear, but definitely expect my new single very soon!

‘KMuss’ The Sonic Architect of Philadelphia’s Rising Beat Scene”




KMuss producer

KMuss is a burgeoning music producer hailing from the vibrant city of Philadelphia, where his innovative beats are making waves in the music scene. With a distinctive style that blends elements of hip-hop, electronic, and experimental music, KMuss is quickly gaining recognition for his unique sound and artistic vision.

Kevin Musser, born October 15, 1995, known professionally as “KMuss,” is an American record producer and beatmaker. He is from the Delaware County area of Pennsylvania, just minutes away from Philadelphia. KMuss is currently independent and working with many rising artists.

His career started at the age of 23 when his mother was facing a 3 year jail sentence.  He was determined to find his passion and after months of praying to God, he finally found producing after catching interest when hearing Metro Boomin’s beats on the album “Double Or Nothing” by Big Sean and Metro Boomin. He soon downloaded FL studio and fell in love. After finally making his first beat on July 3, 2018, KMuss knew that he had the creativity and also the determination needed to make it in this industry. Since then he has worked with popular Philadelphia artists such as Kur, Quilly Millz, Drewboy, Drama b2r, Dappa, and Young Money’s own Drizzy P, and more.

KMuss’ wide-ranging sound can be described as creative yet cohesive, with layers of intricate melodies, pulsating beats, and atmospheric textures. He seamlessly fuses elements of classic hip-hop with modern electronic production techniques, creating tracks that are both nostalgic and forward-thinking. His music transcends traditional genre boundaries, offering listeners a sonic journey that is both immersive and dynamic.

On August 25, 2020, KMuss produced Quilly’s hit song “Drought Where” alongside Tekashi 6ix9ine’s producer Koncept P. This opened doors for KMuss as it featured on the legendary Cosmic Kev’s Philadelphia based radio station 98.9 (Power 99). Cosmic Kev gave KMuss a call and told him to keep his foot on the gas, exactly what KMuss is doing. KMuss came right back with another power 99 feature when he produced “For Me” for Quilly on Nov. 18, 2020. In the introduction of “For Me” Quilly shouts out KMuss saying “Aye KMuss, I told you, all we have to do is stay in the studio” and he was right. KMuss then had 2 songs land on Quilly’s album “Tonya Son” on November 20, 2020. A month before the album was released, Quilly also used a KMuss beat on Funk Flex’s “Block Work” Youtube series.

The KMuss beat used by Quilly on Funk Flex was captivating as Quilly does his thing and flows effortlessly. The video is on labeled “Funk Flex Block Work 0008.” KMuss On The Beat then went on to produce “Big Dram” for Drama b2r and “Big Dawg” for Drewboy in 2022. In June 2022, KMuss landed 2 songs on Benny the Butcher’s artist, Dappa’s album “Thanks For Nothin 2.” This got him an Apple Itunes plaque for Top 200 hip hop/ rap albums. KMuss recently got a placement on Young Money’s Drizzy P’s “Mental Warfare” album which dropped on Oct. 3, 2023. He credits his “secret weapon” producer, Kaapo from Italy, on creating the crazy NBA youngboy type melody and the rest was history. Drizzy P created a memorable music video to the KMuss-produced banger titled “Who TF Is Drizzy P?”

One of KMuss’ defining characteristics as a producer is his meticulous attention to detail. Each track is meticulously crafted, with every sound carefully selected and arranged to evoke a specific mood or emotion. Whether it’s the haunting melodies of a late-night groove or the energetic rhythms of a summer anthem, KMuss’s music is always imbued with a sense of authenticity and depth.

In addition to his solo work, KMuss has also collaborated with a diverse range of artists and producers, contributing his production skills to various projects across different genres. His collaborative spirit and willingness to experiment have earned him a reputation as a versatile and in-demand producer within the Philadelphia music scene and beyond.

As his career continues to gain momentum, KMuss remains committed to pushing the boundaries of his craft and exploring new sonic territories. With each release, he continues to captivate audiences with his distinct sound and artistic vision, solidifying his position as one of Philadelphia’s most exciting emerging producers. As he continues to evolve and refine his sound, the future looks bright for KMuss, and his journey as a rising talent in the music industry is one that is undoubtedly worth following.
