A Japanese mother, an Odia father, a career in Bengaluru as a musician after an MCA degree (the completion certificate for which he never picked up) and a job opportunity at Infosys that he didn’t take up – Samir Rishu Mohanty’s antecedents are decidedly curious.
Samir Rishu Mohanty was 16 when he began rapping. Those days (he is 27 now), people didn’t hesitate to laugh at a rapper — spilling one’s intimate thoughts through rhyming verses was an outlandish concept. But he stood strong and chased his dreams, and now, he has released his debut album ‘One Kid With A Dream’.
