“Mickey’s Very Mery Christmas Party”.
In  2016, Stefon was on set of the Tupac biopic film ;All Eyez
On Me as an extra and ended up leaving with the legendary role of Puff
Daddy which opened the door for him to also play Diddy in Oxygen
‘Snapped’
Stefon is also on a TV show executive produced by Kodak Black, “City of War”.
Currently in Atlanta pursuing film and music full-time, Stefon has been taken
under the wing of many power-heads in the entertainment industry, while forming
a lane of his own. He has embarked on multiple musical projects, the latest being
his anticipated album BAE, which features the musical talents of R&B group
Pretty Ricky, rapper and reality star Yung Joc, and rapper Shya Lamour.
An amazing songwriter, producer, and actor, with a Nostalgic New Jack Swing
sound that draws everyone’s ear instantly, the talented performer is charismatic
with an undeniable personality that captures all ages and demographics.

Albums independently, the movie, the undeniable sound he posses and his
addictive charismatic charm. it will become impossible not to hear about

TRGB MEDIA: TELL US HOW YOU STARTED OUT WITH DISNEY

STEFON4U: Disney they do auditions once a year, a real one–unless you have an agent in LA.  They do a big audition once a year and it’s always at a different place.  They don’t even give you a real head start, they just let you know three days before.  Most of the Disney auditions are personality-based.  Auditions already starts when you first walk in.  I’m pretty goofy most of the time so I was just being a goof-ball.  I didn’t know how to act before Disney–so that’s how basically I got in the door.

TRGB MEDIA: HOW DID YOUR OPPORTUNITY WITH BEING IN THE MOVIE ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME’ COME ABOUT?

STEFON4U: That was the biggest blessing in the sky for me.  Getting that Puffy role took me out of Disney completely.  Getting that role was an accident because I originally was suppose to be an extra.  I showed up with my boy , he was going to be in a Death Row east scene.  I have real curly hair and I was just making fun of whoever was going to play Diddy.  I started doing Diddy voices, then they called me over, I thought I was in trouble or something.  They asked me if I had any experience acting and I told them kinda.  Next thing I knew, I was standing beside the other guy that was suppose to play Diddy.  They were looking for the old Puffy from back in the day instead of the Diddy now, so I guess I resembled the old Puffy.

TRGB MEDIA: AFTER ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME,’ DID YOU HAVE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO DO FILM?

STEFON4U: Yes, I ended up joining a television series called ‘City of War’ where Kodak Black is the executive producer.  I guess he is trying to get his Tyler Perry on LOL.  I also been jumping into a lot of videos as well. I’ve been in the City Girls videos and others. I was in a short film series called ‘Love You like That,’ I played an abusive boyfriend that had a very secret life, then his girl finds out and I get shot in that one. Also I’m writing a television show actually working with my brother Lil’Zane with that one.  It’s kind of like a spin off from my favorite movie ‘How to be a Playa’ We’re kind of taking back 25 years later.  It’s definitely a funny script called “Hard to be a Playa.’

TRGB MEDIA: NOW THAT YOU HAVE GOTTEN YOUR BIG BREAK STARTING WITH DISNEY AND YOUR ROLE AS DIDDY IN ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME,’ WRITING YOUR OWN TV SCRIPT AND WORKING WITH KODAK BLACK IN ‘CITY OF WAR,’ TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR MUSIC BACKGROUND

STEFON4U: I kind of been doing that since I was a kid.  But it really didn’t really hit until I was in Florida and I met this guy named Static Major. I started hanging out with him just picking up traits to how to write songs.  Also hanging out with Pretty Ricky, that’s how I learned how to do my own stuff. I also co-wrote some of their record they did in Miami because I know their sound.  So I decided to work on my own project to see how it would do and it’s doing really good right now.

TRGB MEDIA: TELL US ABOUT YOUR ALBUM ‘BAE’

STEFON4U: I put ‘Bae’ out as an EP first.  It was doing really well but I had other songs that I did for the album that I didn’t put out.  So after two months I made a deluxe edition.  I added some features that wasn’t on the last one, that’s how Yung Joc got on.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT WAS THE THEME/INSPIRATION OF YOUR ALBUM?

STEFON4U: It all started out with the EP. It was about a relationship I was going through; I kind of just told it from front to back.  From the good times until the time that we fell apart.  I was kind of upset and wrote more attacking-level lyrics; that was my moment of how I felt.  I had her number still saved to my phone with a blank and the word ‘BAE’ so I just dropped her name and called it ‘Bae’ I started the album being mad and sad then at the end all good.

TRGB MEDIA: WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?

STEFON4U: Besides getting these videos out, I think the next move for me is getting out ‘The Lavish Savage,’ I’ve had some records I’ve tested in clubs that has been doing really well.
