“I’ve been producing hits for years since I was a teenager,” Tony Duardo says.
“I was happy with being a ghost producer, songwriter, and empowering other creatives in the industry. For me, it’s not about shining or being a star. I guess a lot of people would ask why to come out now in the public eye, and my answer is ‘purpose.’ Keep your eye on me and everything I do because I will achieve the impossible with African Music. I don’t care about titles, but you will call me the greatest to ever do it.”
Confident in his words but backing it up with action, Tony Duardo is a professional singer, writer, drummer, guitarist, pianist, producer, engineer, composer, and more. He describes himself as “an artist and businessman that identifies as Pan-African man and lives by it as he is fluent in various languages including French, Portuguese.”
He has the drive, skills, and knowledge to achieve that which he claims he’ll achieve.
Tony Duardo is a serial entrepreneur and business developer and a UK IVY League scholar.
“I actually have one single talent that God gave me, and that’s the ability to learn, reverse engineer and create out of nothing, God is my role model. I love creating. I love learning, it’s just who I am, and everything I do is fuelled with passion. I am aligned with the loving nature of my creator, which is to create, “he adds.
