Every now and then, we hear of artists who become overnight sensations through the internet and US rapper, J-Real could well be on his way to achieving such success. With a heavy presence and following on social networking platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, his music is spreading like wildfire.

I received a mention from J-Real out of the blue on Twitter with a link to his new music video on YouTube. I wasn’t on his list of followers and neither was he on mine, nonetheless I clicked the link and to my surprise, enjoyed his music video, titled ‘King of Teens’. It is a video for a medley of songs from his new mixtape, with different imagery and themes for each song. I immediately developed a liking for a particular song, ‘Secret Girls’ featuring vocals from R&B singer, Sammie. We soon became friends and started tweeting to each other more often and soon I requested for him to send me the audio files and it isn’t surprising that I now use ‘Secret Girls’ as my ringtone, and yes I am the only one with that ringtone in Ghana. LOL!

I didn’t want to keep the secret to myself so I decided to conduct the following interview with J-Real. And of course I want to be remembered for this interview when he blows up and becomes the next big thing. I found out about his journey so far, his ambitions and future plans.
