We caught up with DJ, #babeofmissguided and newly announced MTV presenter Snoochie Shy to chat about her upcoming show at Toddla T’s Steezey Wonderland, her new presenting job YO! MTV Raps and what she’s listening to RN…
Hey Snoochie! How are you?
yo yo yo, I’m great thanks, currently stuffing my face with chocolate
Congrats on your new MTV job! Tell us about Yo MTV Raps…
Thank you! So excited for you guys to see it! YO! MTV Raps, was obviously such an iconic show back in the day, I’ve watched most of the shows on YouTube so I’m honoured to be hosting the London version alongside my good friend Poet! The show is 100% focused on UK music, it’s got interviews, performances, clips and loads of other random stuff! It’s really fun and it’s been a dream to work on, honestly my dream job 🙂
When can we expect to see you on our screens?
It premiers on MTV, December 8th – 9PM. Tune in!
What’s on your playlist right now?
Oh gosh, so much. I’ll do my top 5 at the moment which is:
Tara Carosielli – Leave You Lonely
Fredo – The Avenues
Avelino – 1 In A Million
Lil Peep (RIP) – Problems
Skengdo x AM – Crash
What’s been your career highlight/proudest moment?
This year I set myself a goal to get my first tele job so 100% it’s getting the YO! job. So thankful!
What’s your song to get you ready for a party?
Anything Lil Pump, he’s too sick with it
You can only wear one outfit for the rest of the year what is it?
A PVC outfit. I love PVC, and I wouldn’t mind wearing that for the rest of my life lol
Who would be in your ultimate girl gang?
My best friend Yemi (Misi)
Vashtie (a huge idol of mine)
Nadia Rose cause she’s just all round sick and I love her!
My mum cause she’s the biggest G I know
Davina McCall cause she’s a TV legend.
You’ve just been announced on the line-up for – Toddla T’s Steezey Wonderland! Who are you most excited to play alongside?
EEEK!! SOO gassed! I love everyone on the line-up, everyone’s dope and I can’t wait to see everyone do their thing, but I’ll go with my radar family, P Montana and Afro B – that’s the bros 🙂 and of course Toddla himself cause he’s a bludclart G! Lol
What advice do you have for aspiring artists trying to break into the industry?
Never give up, you never know when the right opportunity is around the corner, also don’t compare your journey to anybody else’s. The time you spend focusing on others takes time away spent focusing on you.
What’s on the agenda for the rest of 2017?
Have fun for the rest of the year, I’ve achieved every goal I set myself for this year aside from one, but I have a meeting about that specific goal this week so fingers crossed 🙂
