His most treasured memory, niche interests, what fame and friendship mean… the rapper bares all in this interview

By Darshita Goyal05 Jun 2024

In 1997, psychology professor Arthur Aron led a study that set out to find whether intimacy between two strangers could be accelerated if they asked each other a series of 36 specific, personal questions. The idea was that if two people are vulnerable and share their unguarded, candid thoughts with each other, it’d bring them closer together. Two participants of the study actually tied the knot just six months after.

So, considering that there’s something special about this set of questions, we put every single one to Niko B to celebrate the release of his latest album dog eat dog food world. Now you know what to listen to while diving deep with the rapper <3
