Profile Information

About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
Mwalim *7), a.k.a. DaPhunkeeProfessor is a multidisciplinary, master artist and teacher. Amassing credentials and experiences in music, spoken-word, literature, spoken-word, film and television, as well as an arts educator and aesthetics scholar.

As a musician, singer, songwriter, arranger and producer, he is the type of soul - funk - jazz artist who embodies the time-honored tradition of the musical storyteller. A vibrant and prolific figure in the underground soul and dance music scene, Mwalim notes, "I never made a killing, but I've always made a living." Nicknamed ‘DaPhunkeeProfessor’ by a former student; Mwalim is a tenured professor of English and Black Studies at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Playing Carnegie Hall before he turned 14, Mwalim began his career in the 1980's, while attending Music & Art High School. Hanging out in the fabled 251 West 3oth Street music building led to doing session work at Planet Studios and Rogue studios; later doing session work at Jazzy Jay Recording Studios when it was located in the Bronx. Nicknamed "The String Guy" for adding violin, viola and cello parts to songs, he also played keyboard on a number of early hip-hop, r&b and dance music recordings in New York City and eventually Boston, MA.

Mwalim came into his own as a producer, arranger and remix artist, lending his talents to projects by a myriad of major and independent labels and artists before emerging as a solo soul and spoken-word artist in the late 1990s in the east coast small club circuit. As an underground soul artist, his style and sound was part of the foundation for the 'neo-soul' trend. A mentor to many up and coming artists, he is considered the 'Godfather of the South Coast Soul Movement' (referring to the Southern region of New England). After a bad stint with a major record label, Mwalim re-organized his own independent label, Liberation Music – MGM from the imprint that he formerly used, Midnight Groove Recordings/ Multimedia.

Winner of the 'Best Male Jazz Artist' category at the 2010 and 2012 New England Urban Music Awards, Mwalim has opened for and/or performed with Musiq, The Four Tops, Angie Stone, The P-Funk All-Stars, The Last Poets, KRS –ONE, and N’Dambi. His CD, “The Liberation Sessions” (Liberation Music – MGM) scored the club hit, DEM BIG GIRLS and earned multiple top nominations from the Urban Music Awards as well as two Top nominations from the 2010 Native American Music Awards (NAMMYs). After a stint at a major label as an artist and producer, Mwalim helped form Liberation Music - MGM in 2007, launching their first release in 2008; the critically acclaimed "Sketches of a Neighborhood" as The Bass Mint Bros.

Mwalim received his formal training in theater from New African Company in Boston, New England's oldest, continuous professional Black theater company. Distinguishing himself as a playwright, drama teacher, director, and producer, his work has been presented throughout the USA, Canada, as well as the U.K. and the Caribbean. He has been the resident artist at such venues as the Harlem Theater Company, Bronx Writer's Center, Live From The Edge Theatre, WGBH-TV, RMG, and has been the playwright-in-residence at New African Company since 2004.

Posted on April 18, 2018 at 4:59pm 0 Comments

Hip-Hop Jazz Percussionist struts his stuff and wins first place in the Mashpee Middle High School Talent Show. Performs song from upcoming album.

When you're 14 years old and have already headlined three jazz festivals, performed for crowds of 48,000 people and spent your last summer on tour as opposed to cutting lawns, a high school talent show might seem a bit passé, but not for The ZYG 808. When notices for auditions went up he jumped at the…

Excuse Me,


How is everything with you? Am a Banker and also interested in investment, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately,I have been in search of someone whom i can trust to partner with me, so when I saw your name I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can assist each other. I am Mr. Frank David Osei, a Banker here in GHANA. I believe it is the wish of God for me to come across you now. I am having an important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will interest you because, it is in connection with your last name and you are going to benefit from it.

One Late Dr Dean Jon, a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit with my bank in January 2006 for 36 calendar months, valued at US$5,500,000.00 (Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was the 16th of January 2009. Sadly Dr Dean was among the death victims in the May 26 2006 Earthquake disaster in Jawa, Indonesia that killed over 5,000 people. He was in Indonesia on a business trip and that was how he met his end. My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because he was my friend and I am his account officer. Dr Dean did not mention any Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he Dr Dean was not married and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that I should give instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract. I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that Dr Dean is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I don't want such to happen. That was why when I saw your last name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account and my bank head quarters will release the account to you.

There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and I from any breach of law. It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person,so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties,my share will assist me to start my own company which has been my dream.

Let me know your mind on this I have more to write you about the details once I receive your urgent response through my personal Email address Please let this Secret remain between the both of us only.Could you please get back to me on:( frankdavidosei@live.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Mr. Frank David Osei
