A Day with Amaru Don TV & Big Sean
First stop, Oxford Circus. I’m not a fan of the West End, so having to travel through there was so stressful. Found a spot to meet Mr. Don, and we were on our way. Conversing about working around artists, I was getting excited. Now I won’t lie and say I’m Big Sean’s BIGGEST fan, but his album definitely made me appreciate him a lot more than I did.
Got to the studio, signed in and it was just a waiting game from then. Continued to talk about the media and the way artists come across to the public – It was time to go downstairs! Carried some equipment, shook a few hands and was escorted into the interview room. Big Sean was already there, chilled as ever! He stood up and greeted us with hugs and an introduction; ‘aww’ is what was going through my head at this point. Set up the camera, sorted out the lighting and the scene was set. By then Big Sean was already casually chatting, he’s EXTRA humble.
Camera rolling, the interview began. Very insightful and humorous individual he is, I did learn a lot about him. Was a very natural discussion also, the information was just flowing – like a conversation. Before I knew it, the interview was done.
Got a few pictures in, again we were indulging in conversation – weirdly enough it was about food, one of my favourite subjects! Had a few laughs, and it was time to go (time actually DID fly). Hugs and handshakes, wished him a blessed trip and we were on our way!
So basically, WOW was my reaction when we left. I’ve never met an artist and had the chance to sit down and talk to them like that before. I’ve also never been behind the scenes or at the scene of an interview like that. Working with Amaru Don TV for the day was definitely a learning experience, the preparation that goes into interviews that seem so short/simple is commendable. Hard work and persistence evidently pays off!
