Story behind your band/artist name: My artist name derives form my first name "Akinola" and my name last name "Pedro". In middle school, a friend of my gave me a nickname AKP, & during high school I was called by my last name "Pedro" instead of my first name.

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Prince George's County

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: I have never eaten at Ben's Chilli Bowl. 

I have never been inside to the white house or the monument.

My family on my mother's side was somewhat affected by the gentrification that goes on in DC.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I want a feature from Anna Wise in 2018. Because I think we both make the same type of music and she's an amazing person and artist.
