People - Blakk Soul aka Merce aka Mumbea
Singer, song-writer and Eastside bred Blakk Soul has been through all the ups and downs of an aspiring artist. But it is a testament to his work ethic that his peaks have been much higher than his valleys. We at eTc have seen it all first hand and still marvel, but are not surprised, at the fact that from talent shows to Spotify he has remained the same solid character. This holiday season he release his first Christmas album in collaboration with Rapper Big Pooh - it's called Holiday Jukin and is a splendid piece of work from start to finish. You can sense the chemistry Rapper Pooh and Soul have together after a few years of friendship and Soul being featured on Pooh's last album. He has forever been a local supporter particularly of the arts community and he's always been Club907 so we caught up wit Soul to introduce him to you. You'll be seeing him around quite a bit.
