1. Tell us a little about where you are from and what you are currently doing.
I'm from Abuja the Capital city of Nigeria and I'm a tiler. That's where I get money to fund my music and also buy my music production gear so I can record myself in my little apartment and so far I'm doing well with my mixes and I've also mixed for a few friends.
2. What inspired you to start playing and making music?
I grew up playing soccer games until my days in secondary school when I started writing rhymes after developing huge love for literature and art as a whole. My love for writing music keeps growing even though I never knew what a music studio looks like or where is located, then I was still living in my village where grow up with my grannies.
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
I'm a big fan of anybody who is successful in rap music, from Notorious B.I.G. to 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Papoose, Lil Wayne, Puff Daddy, Ruggedman, Olamidé, M.I., and Modenine.
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
I want to make music for all classes of life. I want to reach the height where I can be recognized as a mainstream artist.
5. Tell us about your creative process when you make new music.
Most times, I like writing down my lyrics before choosing the kind of beat that will sync well with the idea but I'm also comfortable writing to a ready-to-record instrumental.
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
Dreams by The Game because of the storylines, the beat, and the video too.
7. What is the best advice you have either given or received in terms of music?
I usually tell people who make music to do it without holding back their passion, put their body and soul into the process and the result never lies. And the best advice I've ever received is I was told not to give up on myself.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
The fact that I'm not the only one listening to my songs today I feel accomplished already. I have people listening to my songs in and outside my country. To me, this is a big win, it gives me the energy to do more.
9. Just for fun! What's been your most embarrassing moment so far?
My first-day recording in the booth. I rap from my intro, took the hook and the verse back to the hook again, and continue with the second verse then the hook again, and the outro. All in one take. Lol.
𝟭0. Tell us about your lowest and highest points in music so far.
There was a time I have only 6 monthly listeners on Spotify and Apple music altogether but today the story is changing little by little and my monthly listeners have raised above a thousand listeners after becoming a New Artists Spotlight member in less than 3 months.
