RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW LONDON ARTIST DINNIT DIVO, WHAT HAPPENED?

Hiya mate, let’s do this. What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

From a young age, I began relating to music that inspired me which helped to build my personality and help me discover who I was, but it was the Spice Girls who made me start follow the dream of becoming an artist.

At the time, I remember being maybe 7 years old, and after school, I used to lock myself in my room and “rehearse” my World Tour, dancing and singing the whole first Spice Girls Album.

Introduce us to you and your musical history.

My name is Dinnit Divo, I am a Singer/songwriter, actor, novelist and model. My art is about positivity, equality, revolution and acceptance. I am grounded in a firm belief that through art we can open people’s minds and change attitudes towards politics, ethics, discrimination, fashion, industry; the whole World.

I am a big supporter of minorities and as part of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I want to break boundaries and unite people as one through my art. 

What was life like for you before music?

Music has always been in my life since the day I was born, even if it was just on my mind.

What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?

Wannabe by The Spice Girls.

Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

I just started but I am glad that I didn’t start before. I believe that my growth, experiences, places and people made me the artist I am today. I can’t wait to start my shows and finally have the platform to inspire others.

What’s the biggest thing you have learned from someone else in the industry? 

Age ain’t nothing but a number.

DINNIT DIVO

Tell us Two truths and a lie about you.

I was born in Portugal. I am afraid of snakes. I made out with Harry Styles.

If you could wish for one thing to aid your career what would it be?

Getting signed with a massive publisher label.

Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….

Oh yeah. Nowadays we have to be very careful of what we say or do. Especially when we talk about certain delicate subjects. Listen, I grew up in an era where having an opinion made you the person you are. As long you don’t disrespect or allow for violence and discrimination…we’re all good.

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories? If not why not?

I am a conspiracy theorist myself. I live for it. Well, most of the ones I believed turned out to be true. So…

What was the worst experience on stage?

Before music, I used to be an actor back in Portugal doing Broadway shows. One time I was so ill that my voice was gone, I literally couldn’t say a word on stage, no sound would come out. 

The panic was real.

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about. 

I had sex with a ghost once.

What makes you stand out as an artist?

Passion for what I do and being genuine

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.

This is my debut single. “Lucifer”, a Dance-Pop song.

Lucifer is associated with everything that’s bad, and that’s what I wanted to portray in this case. I’m talking about alcohol, drugs, irresponsible sex and other bad decisions we make while under the effect of certain substances. I wanted to comment on the darker sides of what’s going on in the modern night life scene, where everything is surrounded by “Lucifer”.

What was the recording process like?

Recording was a dream come true. Imagine being a boy from a small town in Portugal moving to London and being able to speak zero English and then I am in this record studio in Soho with a producer that I just got introduced to creating the song that I wrote. I felt like a superstar in Hollywood.

I was really excited and I was able to experience and understand the process of recording. That experience made it so much easier with the recording process of the following songs.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

My breakup. My ex made me write songs with a deeper meaning.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

I think most of the artists after hearing the song a few times always want to change something. I would change some bits, yeah, but in general, I am happy with the song. Look, no budget and no team behind me. I think I’ve done pretty good.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Be a Divo!!! Being a Divo means you respect others, you know and accept who you are, you fight for your rights, believe in equality and diversity, and you stand up for your community. Spread love and positivity.
