He’s able to share his passion for music while promoting the African culture to a global audience.

But how did he get there?

Speaking to Word Is, Antony said he has always had a passion for creating music-themed videos. However, only a handful of friends actually saw his content and were able to support his unique skills.

His best friend introduced and encouraged him to join short-form mobile video app TikTok, then known as Musically.
