Diontae Maurice David Bussey better known as WildeTuna, grew up in Philadelphia and moved to the suburbs in Souderton, PA as a young child. It was a new terrain and a land of opportunity. Gone were the corner stores and well marked blocks, only to be surrounded by open land and fewer people. Being a minority in a small town, required him to grow and learn a new way and a new culture. “It molded me and made me well-rounded. I feel comfortable in any room…with any person race or gender. I see both sides of the fence: good and bad from each perspective, so It helped me become king.” It was his teachers who would inspire him to think beyond his color and see opportunity. He hasn’t missed any yet. He’s making his dreams a reality.
The Young King was blessed by the presence of two very influential women in his life: his mother and grandmother. “We were placed in a world that didn’t want us; where we felt out of touch with ourselves. She helped make sure I didn’t look anywhere else for help, love, or advice.” It is this constant love and support that inspires him today as a man and father. “To me being a man and a father means being everything that everyone needs at the same time. As a man there, should be no one around you in need or in want. We are men and are here to provide when nothing else can. As a father it should only be doubled and with no excuse or complaint.” Diontae is making the most of every opportunity remembering what his father told him,”it’s never too late…never question yourself and your feelings. It’s all you to own up to it.”
Diontae Bussey is a renaissance man. He isn’t just looking to build his career, he’s looking to change the world. Beyond his music, he is also a producer and philanthropist. “Greatness Above Negative Gain” is more than a slogan, it’s a philosophy. He believes in the future and wants to provide greater gain for everyone in the industry and around the world. When asked to define what it means to be great, he answered, “The thing that hurts nothing but helps everything.” The goals of the Young King are clearly outlined. To establish a company that builds through positivity, giving back to the people.
One that is self-sufficient enough that we don’t have to bank on selling anything to flourish. In music and production he plans to build a team of artists and professionals to further people’s dreams and educate themselves about life.
