About

My inspiration is the beauty of diversity, unity and culture. I want to promote the concept of celebrating universal love and cultural acceptance. Race, creed, economic status should not define nor divide humanity. Through my music I seek to unite the world and present the message of oneness. My song entitled “ONE” which encapsulates diversity will be released as the first single from my cd. Here is my step by step song writting process. 1. I will produce music sketches of vocals, keyboard and guitar. 2. Writting out Chords and lyrics here is an example: L.O.V. E. by Koku Gonza

Verse 1-Am -4 Bars What is the word that leaves me breathless Everytime I see you What is the word that keeps me obsessed Everytime I touch you

Prechorus-C#-4 Bars I’ don’t want to leave home without it I go to sleep at night dreaming about it Hm, Hmm, Hmm. Sweet like candy.

Hook-Am-8 Bars Maybe its L.O.V.E. L.O.V.E L.O.V. E. (1)That’s got the best of me (2)That put a spell on me

Verse 2-Am-4-Bars Some say it happens only once in a lifetime And when it comes you better set aside your pride You make me smile that I can’t deny, no, no, no Prechorus-C#m-4 Bars Butterflies swim when you touch me I’ll be your honey, You’ll be my bee. Hmm, Hmmm, Hmm . Sweet like candy.

Hook-Am-8 Bars Maybe its L.O.V.E. L.O.V.E L.O.V. E. (1)That’s got the best of me (2)That put a spell on me

Bridge-Am-8 Bars Nina ku penda sana Ooh boy you make me luv ya

Vamp-C#-8 Bars I cant runaway from what is real Fearless out here with the way I feel Mm, sweet like candy

Its no mystery to me That I need it Your good lovin I must have it Mmm, sweet like candy

The rough draft of each song will be recorded first. After completing my preproduction sketches I will take my ideas to a studio to get professionally recorded. That is where the cost arrives. Recording, mixing, mastering and packaging professionally can become a monster of a cost for an independent artist. My first two projects, I recorded without the cost of a professional recording or packaging. Although, I am thankful to endure the experience as a producer and singer/songwritter, I want to progress in the sound quality of my artistry I deliever to my audience. With your assistance I can deliver the quality Koku Gonza sound to you and my audience!
