It is minutes to midnight, he is lost in downtown Miami, has to catch route eleven for a one hour-forty minute bus ride to his neighborhood, then takes a twenty minute walk home, finally reaching after one o’clock in the morning.
“That night there was a big music industry event, I had to go out and meet new people...it takes sacrafice. No matter how long it takes, you have to do it. At the end of the day, no one is going want to hear about if’s, it’s about getting things done.”
Those were his days as an undergrad in college, which he spent time in between school jumping on airplanes, driving hours and hours, and hoping buses to pursue his aspirations.
Nevertheless, while in college he got to work with Latin Grammy nominated producer Freddy Camelo, most noted for the hit, “Dia Tras Dia” performed by Andres Cepeda, and has been taught first hand by platinum selling and Grammy Nominated producer, Ill Factor at SAE production courses.
“Working and learning from those guys, was absolutely phenomenal. Learning from somebody who has worked with Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland, Ill’s production is like magic and I’d like to thank him for that. Freddy, a great and phenomenal producer, there’s nothing more I can say!”
Nowadays, he’s working on bigger and larger things. He has recently started working on a compilation dance EP, writing and co-producing the project with multi-award winning producer, Luigi Giraldo. Ajani has also recently launched his indie music publishing company -Griffith Music Publishing- with hopes of helping emerging artists, earn money for hard work, but most importantly develop exposure for their work.
“There’s no need to be ordinary. That’s silly. Leave that for people who want to be ordinary. Greatness takes hard work and dedication, but I’m not going to complain. We’re in this to make history, seek high recognition, and make a significant impact on pop culture,” he exclaims.
