Interview with Orie King (@orie_king)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Music is my oxygen. It has always been a huge part of my life. As a child growing up with Nigerian roots, I was surrounded by traditional African music, I always try to let my multicultural background shine through my music.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Stop comparing yourself to others, everyone does things at their own pace. If you’re honest with yourself, you will find whatever that is you are looking for.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Not one particular person comes to mind, there’s such a huge list of people that have helped me get to where I am today. Just know that if you have ever even shown me an ounce of support, your name is on that list.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Art is a very powerful medium if used correctly. I use my music as a tool to uplift and inspire.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Never stop being yourself. You are who you are. The day you start changing yourself for others is the day you leave your true self to rot.
