He also addressed a question posed regarding stereotypes about Africa saying:
“I have been to Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Zambia… I have been to various parts of Africa so I didn’t have any type of stereotypical things that Americans come over here with.”
“From friends that I spoke with, I was expecting a modern city and that’s what I see,” he added.
In regards to his music, the 51-year-old singer talked about his legacy in wanting to speak to the “hearts of women and the minds of men to encourage them in love.”
“In the United States, the way the music industry is put together, you know, it’s all about money, even though we know that music is far more precious than money,” he added.
Kenny Lattimore’s music career spans three decades and was highlighted by his 1996 top single ‘Never too busy’.
He also has Grammy recognition and several top 20 R&B albums under his cap.
Lattimore was born and raised in Washington DC, as part of a musical family.
