WHAT INSPIRED YOUR PASSION FOR MUSIC AND WHO HAS BEEN THERE SUPPORTING YOU FROM THE BEGINNING?

I’ve always had passion for music since 13 but the zeal to communicate to people with music inspired me to rap music especially. My siblings and friends have been a huge support to my music from the beginning and I’ll always be grateful to God for them.

 

IN WHAT YEAR DO YOU START MUSIC AS A CAREER?

Not at all, but to be honest, the combination and the balancing with academics seem to be the stressful part

My phone , earpiece and notepad

That’s if they know I chose music naa?

LIKE OTHERS WHERE NOT BORN WITH SILVERSPOON WHERE YOU?

My family are not the extremely rich type but we could afford 3 square meal at least

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE COMPETITION IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

Scared sometimes but I still trust what God has put inside me which is the talent I possess and I know I would definitely make a difference if given the opportunity

An album that will blow the minds of Nigerians and the world at large. Every track in the album to be the most played and downloaded song on every media platform in Nigeria and outside Nigeria

WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE FROM OTHER ARTIST?

My style of music, I am an indigenous (Igbo) rapper but I still do music to suit other tribes and they still enjoy it. The ability to make my listeners understand and also to communicate pain, love, sadness, jealousy, anger, motivation and other emotions through music

Very encouraged and motivated, even more than they intend to. I think every dope artiste deserves a thumbs up at least because this music hustle is not easy oo

 

HOW WOULD YOU GO ABOUT ACCOMPLISHING THIS?

I only trust 2 people.. God and Myself.. I believe that God will see me through because He can not give me a talent without having plans of me becoming great with the talent He gave me. And I also believe in myself that’s why anytime I stumble I motivate myself. The friends and connections God has placed and will place on my path will also play a major role.
