Started in Year
Raised in Ghana and based in Sydney.
settled in Sydney’s western suburbs with his sister and mum when he was 12. Manu was enrolled at Parramatta High School, and spent most of his time on the basketball court, with teenage pipe dreams of making the NBA. He started dancing with a group of kids his age and they called themselves the Syd Kids, setting up on sidewalks with a boombox and dancing for passersby
started working on beats with friend Dopamine—whose production weaves in and out of the catalogues of artists Miracle, JOY., and Anfa Rose (to name a few), most of whom are friends of Manu’s, and share a studio about fifteen minutes out of the city.
“Don’t get me wrong, once I realised ‘yo, this is what I want to do,’ I was in the studio making beats every single day. Every day. I did not leave.”
