perseverance and discipline.

You know, in the recording studio when you play all the instruments, it takes a lot of rigor to play all the instruments one after the other. On the first track it's still quite amazing, on the 2nd and 3rd it surprises again and then you get used and you tell yourself that you have no choice.

You know, I'm a simple man, I live my life, I'm happy with my family, I make my music, my sport, I don't complain, I just find that I don't have what I should have in as an international artist, I work hard for that.

Anzzia: Who are some of your favorite artists currently?

Hosny: I listen to many styles of music, I'm very open musically. A singer of reggae music listens to a lot of music styles, not just reggae. After that, everyone has their own music. I like good music, I like real artists.

Anzzia: Do you have any mentors? If so, Who are they and why did you choose them as your mentor?

Hosny: My mentors are Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Hugh Mundell, and so many great men of all colors in this world that I respect. I chose them because they inspired me.

Anzzzia: What are some projects you have out or are working on currently? How long? Who’s involved?

Hosny: I work on a lot of projects. I released my new album "New Moment" a few months ago, I worked very hard on this album that I built alone. I wrote it, I sang my lead vocal and backing vocals, I played all the instruments, it was a very difficult long work. I then mixed and mastered in Jamaica, New York and London.
I’m working on a future international tour but I have only a few gigs for the moment. I'm waiting for big gigs all over the world, I don’t have a record company, no money, nobody helps me, you know. Only journalists from American magazines, Jamaican, English, radio hosts, support me, my music is broadcast in
