THE RISE AND SHINE OF DENEQUIA
From Being rejected to Blessed & Highly Requested, Boss Lady DeneQuia on the Rise!
How long has your music been your career?
I have been singing since I was 4 years old. I'm at my family church. But I didn’t professionally start singing until 2017. That’s the year I started to take my musical journey seriously.
What is the proudest moment of your career so far?
When I opened for my first big name artist to have even been considered and hand picked was truly a Blessing.
How are you staying motivated this year?
My family motivates me, my supporters. I used to think that I wasn’t good enough. But the folks that support me constantly show love, that's what keeps me going.
Did you ever have a routine that you had to break or implement to keep you on track?
Anyone who knows me knows I live a structured and reserved lifestyle. Everything has to be planned out or I will feel off balance. So I plan my day, month to make things easier. My phone calendar is my best friend.
Biggest tip you can give someone just starting out?
Be patient, work hard. Don’t expect any handouts. Be willing to invest in yourself. It costs money to be successful. And remember nothing anyone says matters it’s your journey not theirs just make sure anything go do, you do it with integrity!
Who gives you the best advice when it comes to your career?
My husband John with him being prior military he always gives me advice on everything from my attire, budget, when to bow out gracefully in situations, etc.
Are there any upcoming projects you're working on that you can share with us?
I have a new single dropping in the fall featuring my two cousins @spoatmusic & @seangodschild . The song is called “The Mud”. We actually shot the video back home in Florida in a few weeks. It’s all of our life stories . We fishies it’s time to pay homage to where we come from while at the same time sharing with our supporters our life stories. Most folks go hard because they have something to prove. We go hard because it’s in us collectively we’ve endured and overcome obstacles. We want the world to know how far we’ve come.
Where can the readers follow all of the moves you're making?
