There is always opportunity to propel yourself
Emeka’s goal is to encourage others to pursue their dreams. He believes in making use of the resources that people have around them, no matter how limited.
“There is always an opportunity to propel yourself further towards your goals”. Emeka exposes the realities of his own life and experience to show that it’s okay to not be okay. What’s important is that you as an individual can utilize accountability and take action in life.
Emeka sowing the metaphorical seeds
The inspiration behind ‘Deserved’ is the journey of progress that Emeka has made since last year. Taking into consideration the many metaphorical seeds that he’s planted since.
“Gratitude plays a huge part in how some of those seeds have begun to reap a bountiful harvest”.
Emeka is a storyteller, his ultimate goal for this track was seeking to create something that would inspire. A sense of relatability was added for his fellow Brits by adding a sample of the London Underground. Signaling, to continue their daily grind despite what hardships they face and to continue sowing their seeds of success.
