Daiza took a few moments out of the hecticness of putting this historic event
together to answer thedetroiter.com's famous four questions by phone. (As told
to Nick Sousanis.)

live here, I understand the market and I think Detroit is a great place. I was
born in Iraq and came to Detroit at age 2 this city has been my life even
since. Detroit has helped me to develop into the person I am today.
many people in their lifetime can enjoy their job more than I do? I enjoy what
I do. I think that's the reason I've been successful. I'm in a fun business and
it's been fun for me.
IS THE FUTURE OF DETROIT?
just have to look at its past and you can see that it's just getting better. The
situation is ever evolving. Detroit is undergoing a transformation from an industrial
city into a city of life of culture. For a time it stagnated - because of this
transitional period. We've gone through that already. As I see it, the future
of Detroit looks very bright.
IS THE FUTURE OF MUSIC/CONCERT
the reasons that I put together the MCMC is because if you looked at the music
of Detroit it's very strong in genres, but it's all fragmented. Basically MCMC
bring different genres of music together to make it a stronger market. What better
way of bringing people together than music?
