We’ve been playlisting P Tee Money’s current single Pleasure here on Phoenix FM recently – and we had a chat about his life and music.
Tell us a little bit about your yourself?
My Name is Prince Thompson Iyamu. I’m a DJ, music producer and actor from North London here in the UK. I also have a royal family background from Nigeria too.
I studied aeronautical engineering in the military. My acting career has seen me take part in some well-known motion pictures such as The Mummy 1 & 2, Tomb Raider Lara Croft, The Scorpio King and many more.
I’ve also written a few books – The Players Code, The Players Code Unleashed, The Jezebel Next Door and a few more which you can find online.
When did you first start to develop a passion for music?
I discovered my passion for music at a very young age, drawing influences from a variety of genres and especially from artists such as George Duke and Earth Wind & Fire.
From my love of music, I eventually settled down in Progressive House, the genre that I connected with the most.
How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard you before?
My productions cross a wide range of electronic music styles, from house, deep house, indie-dance, progressive, future, electro-pop and chill out. I’m currently working through my own label, P Tee Money Music.
Tell us about your DJ career?
I began my career as a DJ in the early 90s playing in nightclubs and other small gigs, where I later teamed up with a female rap artist called The Weird MC aka The Rappatainer. We made waves all over the UK for a couple of years as a dynamic duo.
What music have you recorded and released to date?
I have recorded and released over 90 tracks to date and am currently on my 7th album, You Don’t Care, which is currently streaming and available for purchase and download everywhere.
Who would your dream collaboration be with?
I have collaborated with some notable artist such as Aquah, Nina Story, Addie Nicole and lots more. And I would love to collaborate with Ed Sheeran some day when the opportunity arises.
