Meet Kadda Sheekoff of Telegenique Records in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kadda Sheekoff.

Kadda, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m Haitian, I left Haiti when I was 11 years old and move to Brooklyn, NY. I used to go to an international high school, from there I have so many friends from all over the world. We used to have a coffee house every Friday, so me and my will always come up with something. Sometimes we just take the mic and freestyle, after the show people will come up to me to congrats me then I was like hmmm ok, so I got something in me.

Has it been a smooth road?
In my country people used this quote a lot “chemen siksèk pa Fasil, meaning “the road to Success is not easy” I struggled with a lot of stuff. I remember when I was only 16 years old my aunt kicked me out of the house, at that time I had two voices in my head one angel voice and on devil voice, something keeps telling me to call the cops, and I’m like if I call the cops she going to get in trouble and the other voice tells me to keep walking and don’t look back. I have nowhere to go at that time so I went to my friend store and I had to spend two weeks in a Haitian secondhand Store located in Nostrand Ave in Brooklyn, NY.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m from Haiti, 20 years old. I love hip hop Afro. I listen to R&B sometimes but mostly when I’m with my girl. If you with me and I put some R. Kelly, Usher, Erykah Badu or Toni Braxton trust me it’s going down for real.
