Diverze is a recording artist residing in Buffalo, NY. He recalls first writing to a beat of an Usher song at 9-years-old. Little did he know, this moment would later evolve into a life-shaping passion.
Andra Kenner adopted the pseudonym "Diverze" when he was 16 years old."It's spelled with a Z because people are sleeping on me, "but I want to wake them up," Diverze has stated. It was also around that time when he came to the realization that making music wasn't just a hobby, but something he would dedicate his life to.
Appropriately, his music can be best described as diverse. Arguably one of upstate New York's most eclectic MCs, Diverze grabs from a variety of places to create his music. His latest single "Oh Lawd," begins with a dark, simplistic vibe that transitions into something more, guided by his up-tempo flow and the heavy bass line. One of his other notable songs "Lemonade," has an entirely lighter feel. On this song, he playfully displays his trademark lyricism with a laid-back flow that may leave you wishing Summer lasted a bit longer.
With the official "Oh Lawd" video release, Diverze hopes to prepare listeners for his highly anticipated "Where The Flowers Grow" mixtape. Though the project does not currently have a release date, it is loosely expected in the coming Spring.
With a strong team, well represented in the visual, Diverze cruises through the city of Buffalo reminding us he's on the road to success.
Focus on a trend and become a moment, focus on your moment and become a legend.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes I do both. My biggest show was opening for Good musics' Tyga which held about 1200 people. I also do shows in my home town Buffalo Ny.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
"It's free eats til deceased so you dead for the calories."
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?
I am currently working on my debut project titled #WTFG which stands for Where The Flowers Grow. Previously my 1st single from the project was released, "OH LAWD".
Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes I would. Only cons I have are creative control and the amount of plays it takes to get one sale vs being independent and recouping all your expenses and not owing anyone. Pros are the finances, marketing, connections.
Any last words?
Shoutout to Buffalo New Generations and grace Modi for always believing. Thank you to my friends and family supporting since before I could call my self a true artist.
Where can we contact you?
Thank you for your time. We wish you and your career the success it deserves.
