Meet Benji Cavalli




Benji Cavalli


We caught up with Benji Cavalli few days ago, giving our fans an opportunity to enter into his world.  

Let’s start by getting into your background.

I am a Liberian recording artist, instrumentalist, songwriter, and dancer. My legal name is Benjamin B. Kai, but on stage, I am Benji Cavalli.  I was born April 17, 1984, in Monrovia, Liberia.  In 1997, my family and I moved to the Ivory Coast after my father passed. I started a new life by experiencing a new culture and a new language; French.  In 2000, I migrated  to the USA (Staten Island, New York). 
Have you always wanted to become a singer? 

I have always dreamed of being a singer.  I started singing and dancing at the age of 9. In 2008, I organized a "Coupe Decale" group called Boucantiers Royale.  The group was comprised of Fabio Armani, Douki Alfani, Ansu le Boucantier and Dale Bugarri.  In 2011, I released my first album (My Time). 

Who is your greatest influence?

My greatest influence is my uncle Zike Roberts, one of Liberia's famous singer and songwriter. 

Tell us about your accomplishment so far.

I have opened up for many international recording artists over the years, such as; Kaysha, Emmerson, Kevin Lyttle, Koby Maxwell, Fatu Gayflor, Nimba Burr, Serge Defalet, and more.  December 18, 2011, I was honored by the city of Newark NJ (Municipal Council) for Best Performance.  I performed at the Liberian Entertainment Awards (2016) and was nominated for three Awards (Song of the Year, Music of the Year, and Artist of the Year).  I won 'Video of the Year'.  I am best known for my hit songs "Slow It Down and One More Night."  
Is there anything else you would like to add? 

My music is based on peace and love. I am seeking the opportunity to share my passion with the world, to make a difference. I pray to bring smiles, peace and love to every race.  Your support and love would elevate me above and beyond my calling.
