Photographer / Tour Manager / DJ / Producer
Akwi was born across the water from his home in Kahnawake at Lachine General, Montreal. Entrenched in his native land, he quickly found his identity surrounded by a foreign Canada. Akwi is a Mook Life contributor, been a staple DJ (BuddaBlaze) in the Montreal Hip-Hop and radio scene, hosting OFF THE HOOK for over a decade and tours professionally with artists. As a photographer, he found his eye wandering while travelling, and decided to document the universal common ground we all share; our differences.
He is currently tour managing Canadian Phenoms A Tribe Called Red, working on a production based album, while working on his second solo exhibition, a follow up to Oh Brudder where Art Thou.
