“At a very young age, I fell in love with music because it had such an empowering affect on me.” By the age of 7, Saraphim Ski Da General, began performing Gospel music, writing music, as well as performing in front of an audience. “I began doing poetry, live plays, and joined the church choir. When I reached high school, I transitioned to hip-hop, but lost the same passion and satisfaction of inspiring my audience.” “ When I was at the end of my junior year of high school, I was sent to a detention center where I thought my father was finished. Yet, the power of God led me to graduating top of my class, earning a scholarship, tennis, championship, and reestablished the love of music.” During the next two years that followed Saraphim Ski DA General from graduating, he would go on to college and win lyrical performance contests at many showcase’s in various states; but there was still something missing! It wasn't until the birth of my daughter Ka'myah Blessing, which I found the vagueness I've been longing to fill. I struggled very badly in every aspect of my life, but the death of my second child gave me a whole new outlook on “Life".
"I do this for the Kids"
I dedicate everything I do for the kids to my deceased daughter and her older sister. I just want to help kids develop and increase their inner writer, performance ratio, leadership capabilities, and spiritual growth. I want to provide an environment of creative expression for these kids; so that may become positive role models for the next generation. Expressing and inspiring people by showing their creativity and individuality. Saraphim Ski Da General born July 2nd, “I enjoy to write, read, teach kids and mentor them. I also believe in the strength of exploring new ideas, playing ball, and the best of all I love being a father and role model.”
Breaking the Chains
“I believe kids are like seeds...If you plant them carelessly then they will never fully blossom, but if you plant them with the foundation of love, inspiration, dedication, and knowledge then they will blossom into the beautiful flowers they are!”
