Students Meet Grime Artist Worth Her Weight In Gold
Famed grime artist Goldielocks took a detour to Kensington and Chelsea College recently to meet its music students.
Croydon starlet Goldielocks, real name Sarah Louise Akwisombe, shot to fame in 2005 after uploading her tracks onto myspace where she quickly established a fan base.
The talented 25-year-old has collaborated with a number of high profile music artists including British chart topper and rap artist Tinchy Stryder and has had her music featured in adverts for Nike and the film Adulthood.
Students on the college’s Creative Music Producers course got to hear first hand about Goldielocks rise to fame, her career and life in the industry.
Course tutor Bobby Demers said: “Goldielocks provided students with an enlightening perspective on the urban underground scene in London, the UK and Europe. She talked about the ups and downs of her career, live gigging, composing and her inspiration for writing. Several of the students were very inspired by her DIY ethos and approach to making a niche for yourself in the music business.”
Student Jason Ansere, 19 from Wandsworth said: “She motivated me to go out and do it for myself rather than relying on other people to do it for me.”
