A young Herman Suede was left star-struck when he for the very first time connected with Will.i.am at the latter’s Hollywood recording studio.
The Ghanaian prodigy lit up the internet when he shared a video of his encounter with the iconic musician on his Instagram captioned: “Watch the stars align. Herman Suede x Will.i.am. Love to a Legend!”
In the video footage, we could see Herman Suede treat the multiple Grammy award winner to some of his work, as they both lounged in the studio.
William James Adams popularly known as Will.I.am is an American recording artist, record producer, and lead member of the multiple Grammy-award-winning group, Black Eyed Peas. Will.i.am is widely regarded as one of the biggest influencers of the modern pop sound of the early 2000s.
Paying endless compliments to the young Herman Suede, the veteran said: “Looking at him, he has all the capacity at just 19 years old. He has a huge career ahead!”
Herman Suede and his team visited the U.S, first to work on new musical projects, and also to network with various industry players. The meet-up with Will.i.am was the icing on the cake of a very successful trip which kicked off with the 19-year-old opening for Sarkodie and R2bees at their sold-out “It’s About Time” concert in New York. Herman Suede was also in attendance at the Songwriters of North America (SONA) Warrior Awards in California.
For his next step, Herman seeks to further develop his sound by working closely with a number of producers and musicians he encountered on his trip. Who knows the collaborations the rising star may have in the pipeline?
