Fito Blanko: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am

Why do you do what you do?

I channel emotions through sound and performance.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I began performing at the age of 4 in school plays and started writing

rhymes at the age of 13. I enjoy being able to see what others don't

and hear what others can't.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The hardest thing I had to do was building a team of like minded

individual with aspirations and goals.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Roberto Durans Story, and how he indirectly influenced my parents

moving to Canada shaped my entire life.  My parents both played a  major roll in the development of my character . Family values, hard

work and humility were always preached and practiced in my home.


Musically : I was inspired by local Toronto musicians. I enjoyed  seeing them perform for the community and wanted to follow in

their footsteps which I did. They all played a major roll in

developing my confidence as performer.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I don't believe in mistakes, I call them lessons. If  things don't go as

planned create another opportunity for yourself just like the previous  one or better to get back on track. Just keep your eyes on the price at

all times.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

To keep Inspiring kids to succeed in all aspects of live.

Find your Purpose and strive for it. Enjoy the ride while you're at it..

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Nothing is more important than this moment right now.
