We had the good fortune of connecting with Favour Abel and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Favour, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In all honesty, most things in life are a risk. Risk is what allows you to surpass the limit and challenges you set for yourself. I am a big invoker of risk-taking. So much to the point that my recent single release is actually called “Risk Taker”. You have to take risks in order to grow

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What I’m most proud about is my ability to accomplish the goals I set for myself. Just this past year I had a goal to perform at SXSW and I was able to this month to perform at an unofficial SXSW event where I met a ton of other artists was able to close out the show with an outstanding performance. Getting to where I am professionaly was not easy, facing challenges from mental health, managed time and money, and life it was quite a struggle but it is an accomplishment to say I’m not where I used to be. I’ve learned a few lessons along the way: stick with the people who believe in you, always believe in yourself first. allow life to flow through you, and never let someone else control your destiny. I want the world to know that my brand slogan is the capability of the extent you are willing to express yourself through art, in acceptance of criticism and supression of fear.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Going to eat at Noodle Tree which has really good Ramen and a night out barhopping the streets of San Antonio, TX.
