Get to Know Why Lachi is “Selfish”
Well the truth of the matter is that Lachi is talented both in writing, composing, and singing music. Selfish is what she is not but rather is what she entitled her new song.
“The Selfish Release” is a 4 song E.P. touching on trap, dancehall and pop that celebrates the Self. Self-produced, self-written, and self-released by the Nigerian-US born musician.
We got a chance to do an exclusive interview with her and read what she had to say down below:
But first you have to listen to the track “Selfish” before reading her interview:
Q: Can You please tell our readers your real name as well as your stage name?
A: The industry knows me as Lachi, but it’s actually short for Ulachi, which in Igbo means “ring of God.”
Q: Where are you from?
A: My parents are established in Nigeria, but I was born and raised in the United States.
Q: What genre of music do you particularly love? Jazz? Hip-Hop? RnB?
A: I grew up on jazz, classical music and 90s/ 2000´s pop rock and R&B. There’s always a special place in my heart for vocal jazz and the true soul it embodies.

A: I love to write, not just music, but the written word, poetry, & stories.
Q: Where do you get your musical inspiration?
A: Living in New York City, there is no shortage of inspiration, from the art, to the music, to the attitude. Here there are many confident women and intelligent minorities to look up to, whose struggles paved a way for one like myself. No shortage of inspiration.
Q: So you write and produce your own music?
A: On my latest EP, “The Selfish Release” I wrote, performed and produced the album. For the single “Selfish” S.One Studios provided some of the great sounds used. Songwriting and performing are my first loves, but composing and producing is not far behind.

A: I am low-key a huge fan of Sia!
Q. Where can our readers find your music?
A: All social networks @lachimusic and soundcloud @lachi People can definitely purchase the album on iTunes and Amazon, but the point of the album was to share my Self with supporters, so the album is free to supporters at lachimusic.com
