Please tell us a little about yourself and how you got started?

Zombi Zae the ZombG was created as A metaphor of life and my hardships …, it’s the door I use with music to escape reality.

Everyone was doing music people can relate to . I wanted to do music you can escape with. By using tools I learned acting I applied fear tactics and scare tactics within emphasizing and structure of song and pride myself in walking that thin line
