Sometimes people fail to acknowledge how the very things that make them different are the ultimate propellers for them to reach the summits of success in their chosen fields. While several people frequently overlook this fact and make it their mission to eradicate these traits from their lives, some learn to embrace their eccentricities. And more often than not, those who are not afraid to become different have continuously led a path toward their dreams. One such person is Mustapha Bello, also known as T-Kross.
Mostly recognized as “the boy with an accent,” T-Kross has always dreamed of making it big in the entertainment scene. And unlike those who permanently kept their dreams inside sealed boxes, T-Kross took it upon himself to become the person he wanted to be. Fueled by his determination to climb the pinnacles of victory, he immediately packed his bags and set out to conquer the melting pot of dreams and success: the United States of America.
However, moving into a new country is no easy feat. Aside from continually adjusting to a country’s language and culture, one cannot escape the feeling of being different from everyone else. And as a result, some people tend to feel left out and alone. But for people like T-Kross, they do not allow these circumstances to overpower their goals. So instead, T-Kross diverted his energy toward shaping himself into a figure worthy of his dreams. Determined to turn his plans into action, he began to use his eccentricities and set out to create a successful path of his own.
Ever since T-Kross left Nigeria to seek greener pastures, his dreams continued to linger in the four corners of his mind. And although achieving a stellar status in the realms of music and entertainment is a difficult path to follow, T-Kross’s determination to succeed was more extensive than his fears. So he persevered toward reaching his goals by juggling two jobs a day while creating music in his makeshift studio. And by the time that he was fully equipped to enter the entertainment business, he showcased his African roots to make himself known in the industry.
And because of this unique approach to hip-hop, T-Kross was able to leave remarkable traces of his prowess in the realms of music and entertainment by infusing Afrobeats into his craft.
Proving to be unstoppable, T-Kross has recorded over fifty songs and performed in several states across America. Recently, T-Kross also released a new single entitled “Tonight,” which features Atlanta-based artist, Playy. And aside from his achievements in music, T-Kross also made waves in the acting scene by starring in two full seasons of two web series on Instagram and Youtube.
With everything that T-Kross has accomplished in life, he has proven that reaching one’s dreams is possible if a person puts their whole heart into making things happen. And through his achievements as an immigrant in an unfamiliar place, he hopes to inspire others to embrace their uniqueness and turn them into drivers toward success.
