While in the University, Mc Kross was the institution’s Director of Socials. His social life made him participate so much in show bizz i.e organizing social events where he mostly got hold of the microphone himself. He was so skilled in handling events and that made so many people contract him to handle birthdays parties, weddings, launches of different categories.
Mc Kross has starred in 2 Nollywood movies ( Street boys in campus & the rain is here) with the likes Junior Pope & Jim Lawson. Mc Kross did elementary rap music but has taken focus to be centered on Mastering of events…according he picks more delight in handling proceedings.
JT: With the pandemic, how do you cope with events in these periods
Mc Kross: The covid era has indeed destabilized a lot of things & the entertainment world has never been an exception …though being exceptionally good at what you do makes everything easier. Even underground the people will definitely excavate u because of course the wanna hear & see u go behind the microphone

Mc Kross: Entertainment has been an integral part of me from infant hood. Its been time demanding but sacrifice & passion always makes it easier bro.
JT: What’s been the worst day for you at an event
Mc Kross: There have been challenges in every positive move.
For me they have been countless as well…situations of bending authentic programs for selfish reasons & rendering a professional sometimes handicap on the grounds of impressing an organizer instead of the audience. Lack of love for entertainment on a general note from the part of the country where I am from sometimes kills energy & positive vibes. That’s some of the sets backs I can place my hands on @the moment but we have been persuasive for for progress sake
JT: What would you say is your selling point
Mc Kross: Humility & readiness to work!
JT: We’ve seen people who started in the business but couldn’t evolve as the business is moving further, how do you keep up with the trends to stay relevant

And like every bread winner & head of the family waking up to see them grow keeps me on my toes & ready to hustle my hustle u know what am saying
JT: That’s very true, we are in an Era where most parents don’t support their children in entertainment, what would you do, if your child delves into entertainment
Mc Kross: For my son,the only child I gat now he is a born star as his name literally implies Lushan.
I’ll give him all the necessary support he desires as a modern & a digital pop
JT: Impressive!!,, A word of advice to up and coming Mcs looking up to you sir
Mc Kross:The secret of becoming an amazing Mc is simply humility, from scratch money shouldn’t be the Paramount thing…every event counts because every event sells you on the game.
Smartness & good looks is a salt to the stew. Then be a continuous researcher on the line of hustle.
When u put all this into consideration the sky will most definitely be your starting point
