What first got you into music?:
The Talent and Passion

If you listen to my sounds, you’d hear Afro Pop, RnB and more. Like my producer would say, it is Afro Fusion
What are the steps you take in making your music?:
The making of music has to be pure to me. I vibe on beats before writing a lyric. It’s always like am on a conversation with the beat. I make sure i use the simplest English everyone can relate to Esp. Africans
What do you feel is the best song you’ve ever released, and why?:
Omah Lay’s Damn Cover. It’s my best because I felt free and expressed myself on the song

Money & Promo. Thou I’ve been pushing myself to be a better version everyday
What is one message you would give to your fans?:
A big thanks to everyone streaming my songs. I really feel happy to have you guys here, imagine what it would look like making music without having people to listen to it. I gat y’all in mind, I’ve got lots of musics and vibes for y’all. Keep streaming my music and keep sharing and referring people. I love you all❤️
Your first songs were Gospel songs, so why did you decide switching to secular music?:
Funnily enough, I didn’t leave gospel to secular music. But i think i just have to make music, i have songs about life, love, marriage, national issues and everything. It doesn’t not go against the teaching of christ. Am a christain but i feel the world needs to heal through my music.
Are your family in support of your music career?:
What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?:
Great things start small.
What advice do you have for everyone out there?:
Never take criticism from people you don’t run to for advice
Do you sometimes feel discouraged about your music career?:
Almost all the time. Couple of times I release music and only few people stream it and it just cuts me off. I remember last year when I dropped my first project TGOE, i wrote to some big shots in my city and i was ignored. That was a better drive for me
Where do you envision yourself in the next 5years?:
Next five years, i see myself as one of the biggest export of Afrobeats from Aba to the world.
