Ghafla!: Tell us a little bit about Autopilots.
Auotopilots: We started as a hiphop group back in October 2010, just as we are right now, Losh Mzuka, MC Yobbz and MC Kenzy. We started b y free-styling as a one of our hobbies before releasing our first single, 'Life kwa Mtaa'.
Ghafla!: How did the group form?
MC Yobbz: It was really funny (laughs). Where we used to stay which was the school hostels, we used to go to Losh's place since he had a laptop and that was where the idea of free-styling came to be for us and we used to record it on the web cam. We immediately discovered our mutual love for hiphop. After a long series of freestyles is when we finally decided to get serious and take our works to the studio.
Ghafla!: Ok, so you guys are also students? How do you manage the two?
Autopilots: Our classes take the whole day till about 4:30PM. It is then that we meet and do our music, about twice a week since we are all in the same campus (Daystar).
Ghafla!: Seeing that you are still students, do you get any support in music from your families?
MC Kenzy: No one supports me at all but I get my strength and more passion for music there.
MC Yobbs: Support... no! What I usually do is tell my mother to buy tomorrows paper and read about us.
Losh: The only person in my family that has always had my back is my brother. He has always encouraged me both morally and financially. My mother didn't support me up until I did a track dedicated to her, telling her how much I love and care about her. Then she started appreciating my music.
Ghafla!: What do you think about the various changes in Kenyan music, now that we are also doing house and techno?
Autopilots: Just like everything else, music is also subject to change and as an artist, you just have to give the fans what they want and love for you to make money.
Ghafla!: Who would you like to collaborate with if given the chance?
MC Yobbz: Nonini and Collo. These are established artistes who know what they are doing in the music industry.
Losh: Collo. The guy has consistency in music and that is precisely how an artist should be. I would also love to collaborate with Khaligraph. The amount of musical talent that he has is just unmeasurable.
MC Kenzy: Collo and P-Unit. Collo can take on any beat thrown to him and he knows how to satisfy his fans musically.
Ghafla!: Are you guys for #teamprezzo? What do you think of his behaviour in the House?
Autopilots: Prezzo is a strong character and actually knows how to entertain his fans even when in the house. His drama is what we love about him. We also love the way he put Barbs in her place in the beginning of the show. He is the best celebrity for the Big Brother House. He is just too real.
Ghafla!: Any collaborations that you have done already?
Autopilots: Yes, we have done 'ma-night runners' with Kitu Sewer and other tracks with friends who are also rappers, but more collaborations are on the way and they will be hot.
Ghafla!: And now for the most important question of the day. What do you think about Ghafla!Kenya and our works? Be honest now.
MC Yobbz: Apart from having an attracting page and awesome layout, you guys are informative in matters concerning music and you are doing great. You are building artistes, something that your competitors have never considered doing.
Losh: The first page I open everyday is Ghafla! I love how you avoid scandals and only concentrate on building the artistes. Kenya really needed that.
MC Kenzy: You guys are awesome especially for the upcoming artistes. Your publicity for artistes comes without request from the particular artist and that is really awesome.
