ALBI X, a member of the new generation of Afro-Germans, presents a refreshing perspective on identity that transcends borders. Unlike many who feel like outsiders in their own country, ALBI X’s self-image is built upon a multi-faceted identity that defies simple categorization as solely « German. »
In navigating the complex terrain of everyday life in Germany, ALBI X doesn’t respond to the harsh realities of racism and classism with aggression or a stereotypical « gangsta » attitude. Instead, he opts for a different approach – one that celebrates a multinational self-image, blending Lingala, French, and English in his lyrical expression. He counters the exclusion he faces with an extraordinarily positive, vibrant, and inclusive worldview. His motto is clear: « Be your best possible self. »
ALBI X’s musical sound is undeniably international, shattering boundaries on multiple fronts – from transcending national borders to defying traditional style and genre constraints. He aspires to inspire others, setting an example that encourages embracing one’s uniqueness and otherness as sources of strength.
Despite facing numerous setbacks, exclusions, and at times, severe discrimination, ALBI X utilizes these challenges as stepping stones towards progress and ultimately, upward mobility. His journey is a testament to someone who literally walks through the shadows to emerge into the sunlight of success and self-empowerment.
