As a Hip Hop artist, Wilfred Kanu Jr. has a few akas, such as Freddy Will | his stage name |, Afrikanblac, and Freddy Will Tha Sandmann. In this first volume of the Sandmann’s Journal, you will find entries on some of Freddy Will’s preferred celebs, rides, West African cuisines, an introduction to Sierra Leone, and the process of releasing his first two albums and books. These entries personified the early stage of his music and writing careers when he established his record, publication, and distribution companies in Toronto, Canada.
During the period from 2007 to 2012, he was new in Toronto. There were very few places where he could interchange professional courtesies. He had no choice but to go independent. Using multiple talents, he became an executive producer, publicist, graphic designer, promoter, author, blogger, philanthropist, and music producer. To secure his legacy and balance the creative and business side of the industry while adjusting to his new city, he promoted his music on social networking sites and published a blog website.
This journal started as a news page on his website when he noticed that the page had become a reference point for a Hip Hop antagonist who, from behind the scenes, attempted to sabotage his image, business, or events. Realizing this, Freddy Will transformed his news page into his blog website. These are the earlier entries he published on that site. There are dates under each title; to indicate when they were initially published. Eight years later, the blog produced an audience of over 30 000. He later re-edited them for this journal.
As a Hip Hop artist who gives his views on various subjects, Freddy Will could not allow political correctness to stand in the way of his artistic expression. He gave fans a look into the development and the release of his albums and books, and these journal entries served as a platform to dispel adverse facts, misleading rumors, or misconceptions of Hip Hop Kulture. The purpose is to demonstrate that Hip Hop artists can be intellectually inclined in addition to talent and social influence. This journal covers Freddy Will’s strong views on religious, cultural, and traditional beliefs, issues related to romantic relationships, and human and civil rights. These entries express what he will promote in his books and albums.
