5 Minutes With… Kane
18-year-old singer Kane has been tipped for big things this year, following the release of his track ‘Dreams’. The Wrap Up’s Akilah Russell recently caught up with him to talk celebrity crushes and being a 'normal' teenager...
The Wrap Up: Your life must be so different to regular teenagers; do ever get to go out and have fun?
Kane: I actually do you know, I'm secretly normal [laughs]. Most of my work happens during the week so I get the weekends to myself to go out and do me.
TWU: What's 'doing you'?
Kane: Ah but that would be telling [laughs]… but seriously I don't go out that much, I know what you're thinking!
TWU: You stay at home? I don't see that happening…
Kane: Alright, well, I'm not completely boring; I sound like a granddad [laughs] but I do stay home a lot, promise.
TWU: Do you have any celebrity crushes?
Kane: Me and my boy were talking about this just the other day! I'd say the mix raced one from Little Mix - I don't even know her name! She is nice though.
TWU: You mean Leigh-Anne, should I pass on a message?
Kane: Yeah tell her I said "Hey Leigh-Anne". Pass it on for me yeah? Make sure.
TWU: Should I say something for your friend as well?
Kane: No, just me! [laughs]
TWU: You've been compared to Usher and Chris Brown - no pressure then?
Kane: Imagine, it's crazy! I've been listening to Usher since I was a baby, so that is an honour. I like being compared to the hard-working artists - they've both stayed relevant for years.
TWU: You got a shout out for your female fans?
Kane: Yeah, shout them all out for supporting me. Tell them I love them and don't sleep on me... I've got something special for them soon.
