We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamaal Lewis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jamaal, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think just like with anything else in life, consistency.Showing up every day with a positive mentality and overcoming adversity along the way. But above all else staying grounded in Faith.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think with my brand something that a lot of people don’t know because they only see the surface or the end outcome of my purpose and that’s whatever pops up on TV, in a magazine or what I post on social media but the underlying message or purpose that people don’t see is my clothing line that I wear on set when I’m booked on a gig. My clothing line is called Stay Blessed and I look at it as my ministry. I can remember numerous times when I’ve worked on projects that would be looked down upon in the church congregation or by believers and I completely understand where they’re coming from but my purpose is different but at the same time the same as a preacher. The difference is a pastor gets to go into a church which is considered a safe zone to preach the word of God to believers. My purpose is to go into the devils playground and save lost souls with my clothing line being my armor and light. “Light up the darkness”

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I mean right now due to the circumstances everything would be very limited but my go to would definitely be the beach. I always feel recharged and re-energized when going to the beach and there are a lot of good places to eat like cliff diver, nobu or the sunset.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I think it would be easy to recognizing the obvious of people in my life but I’d like to shine the spotlight on GOD. Without him I am nothing and I’d like to give all glory to him for my success thus far.
