Dwele contemplates his music and career.

“I am happy with what I do and content with where I am. I have a lot more to accomplish, but I think that half the fun is getting to that space. I am enjoying the ride though, so I’m not complaining,” he said.

Ladies love Dwele’s smooth lyrics and tone, and he loves them right back.

“I like natural women who can be themselves. I also like a woman who has character and a sense of humor, that’s a necessity. And I like when a woman can laugh at my corny jokes,” he said.

Dwele’s cool exterior houses a rock star.

“I can be crazy and an entertainer. I do let my [inner] rock star go every now and then. That’s not something I really tapped into before I got into the industry,” he said. “But, when I am onstage I am another guy. I still surprise myself.”

“I want to be remembered as a guy that [made] some great music and provided the soundtrack for people’s lives. I want my future family to be proud when someone says my name,” Dwele said
