Record producer Damage, principal of Damage Musiq, is hoping to break on the international music scene. He is hoping to achieve this break by going against the grain. “The direction I am going is more of an international mainstream setting. I’m looking to do so by fusing different genres with our culture. It is more commercial to do so and it has a wider reach. Where art is considered, it also shows the versatility of my brand,” he said.
