The single, ‘Chase Your Dreams or Die’, taken off the album is already enjoying massive patronage in across Europe and Wonderkid is currently in Ghana to promote the song.
The mix tape consists of productions from THX (who has produced tracks for SnoopDogg and The Clipse), Garenchia, Statikmusic, Aye Q and more. The 10-track compilation will be released by So Fresh Music Group (SFMG), an upcoming record label based in the Netherlands, soon.
Born as Manfred Talvin in Paris, Wonderkid Bounce moved with his mother to Amsterdam at the age of 1. At the age of six his Mom moved back to France and because he had already started going to school his mom was compelled to leave him at his auntie’s place. Growing up in the South East of Amsterdam, popularly known as the Bijlmer, Wonderkid listened to all kinds of music, from well-known Ghanaian artists such as Reggie Rockstone to famous American artists such as Michael Jackson, 2pac,, Jay-z etc.
Inspired by the young age of rapper Lil Bow Wow, Wonderkid at the age of 14 started writing his own lyrics with the aim of becoming a rapper too. He often showed his rap skills to friends and family, who gave him positive feedback that motivated him to do something serious with his rap skills. He soon started performing in school and other places.
In 2006 his cousin and 2 other friends started a music group (which has eventually turned into the record label, SFMG) to explore their music skills further. In 2008, he released his first mix-tape called ‘’The Wonderkid Magic Show’’ which featured various artists and productions by his producer Aye Q. In addition to his mix-tape, Wonderkid-Bounce had featured on other mix-tapes such as StatikMusic’s album called ‘’ Statiktape Re-release’’
His second mix-tape ‘B.O.U.N.C.E’ will drop later this year. He describes it as the re-introduction and is sure to let people know there’s a new Wonder in town. – Peace FM
