What first got you into music?
My father in his days was music love and he plays a lot of good music from Bunny m to the 80’s Plantation Boys, King Sunny Ade, Anyinala Omowura, Ebenezer Obey and so on which I also scored all the songs and all by my self I do sing these lists of songs from head to toe.
As a boy who grew of on the street of Lagos mile 2 precisely, then I used to sell hawk and sell yoghurt, pure water, chinchin, gala, pepper, kerosene and so on… Then I had composed songs for that stuff I was hawking then I later join the choir for about 11 years.
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Fusing fuji into all kind of music I’ll call that very unique and creative. Though to my greatest surprise, I’m really not getting much response like I was when it all started and guess it is because the songs I was fussing fuji into were familiar but now I’m bringing something fresh to the table and it might kinda take a little time for people to adjust to it.
What’s are you bringing to the music industry, what are you doing differently?
Nothing but an unexpected unique vibe is all I’ve been giving and I ready to do more God’s willing.
What’s next for you?
I’m becoming the next big thing in my continent and globally
