On cars: I make my money from shows. Because you don’t see me on these publicised music concerts doesn’t mean I don’t get shows. I make money performing at corporate events. I get paid well for performing at birthday and private parties.
On his album: I am working on music. I have been recording. I have loads of songs that I am working on. I dropped the video of ‘Iyawo Mi’ not quite long ago and I have also released the video of my new song titled ‘Wish Me Well’. The song chronicles the story of my life. The story of how I came from Port Harcourt to Lagos. It’s the real story of my journey. I have truck load of songs that I will release in my album titled Love and Consequences. Me and my producer, Cobhams (Asuquo) are seriously working on it. We will finish up the album any moment from now.
On using Cobhams Asuquo a lot for songs: He understands music a lot. Sometimes music comes to me in form of humming and I won’t have words for it. The first person I call is Cobhams. For example , I got the inspiration for ‘Wish Me Well’ when I was playing video game with a friend of mine, so he was winning me and I wasn’t happy about it, because I hate to lose . All of a sudden, I started humming and then it sounds good. I then went to Cobhams and I told him this is how I want the song to sound and he said ‘don’t worry’. We talked about the songs for days and we were able to come up with good words for the song. Cobhams is a genius.
