Dwele was the special guest of Trevor Nelson on Radio 1’s Rhythm Nation. Dwele said of his influences: “Most definitely Donny Hathaway.. I don’t know what else to say except that it was like he drank a bottle honey before every session, hos voice was it. He could make you feel what he felt. Of course, Stevie Wonder… Songs In The Key of Life, Roy Ayers… there’s a tonne of them.” Audio at bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since been removed.
