HEY Jem

WHO

My government is Jem Wilson. What don’t I do? Hahaha, I’m an artist, so I write songs as well as producing and performing. I am also an actor and have modelled a couple of times

LISTENING TO / WATCHING / READING

I can’t lie I’ve been listening to all my unreleased stuff the majority of the time. I watched the Kieth Haring doc  ‘Street Art Boy’, it’s a must-watch. I’ve just been reading into it ya dig?

NAME YOUR HERO

MF DOOM, THA SUPERVILLAIN

A SWEAR-BY BEAUTY TIP

Beauty comes from within first

LOVES

Making bangers and performing with tha bandem

HOW/WHY DIZZIAK

It keeps my curls in check and I love the scents and the fact that it’s made using natural ingredients

GREAT HAIR MEMORY

Having a trim onstage with Joe & Co at the hairdresser’s convention at the excel. Imagine getting paid to get a dank cut!

NIGHTMARE HAIR STORY/STAGE

Bleaching the top of my short back and sides in year 8. It came out yellow; I got ripped for it at school, so I subsequently cut it all off and went for my first ever buzz cut. The skinhead was bad in itself, but because I had done it so soon after bleaching it, I had tiny lil blonde tips on top 

HOW ARE YOU DOING

I’m doing bits. I am healthy, happy, and blessed to have a support system of incredible people around me. Well and truly BLESSED

ICONIC FIGURE & WHY

My mum, she’s my icon. Everyone lucky enough to know my mum knows why she’s iconic; she inspires me in every way. I would not be the drippy kid I am today if it wasn’t for this magnificent woman
