Q: How would you describe your music and artistry to someone who hasn’t heard it?

A: I describe my music as a “Discovery.” It’s fresh and unique, like a piece of art. Each creation offers a different perspective, inviting listeners to experience the world through my eyes.

Q: When did you officially start your career and what would you say you learned along the journey?

A: I don’t see music as a job but as an artistic journey. However, my milestone moment was with “Kill Me” in 2017. It marked a significant step forward, with its music video and airplay.

Q: Your debut EP “Olori” just came out recently. Can you tell us about your emotions and the significance behind and after releasing this project to the world?

A: “Olori” was a statement. After “Timeless” and the “Jaye Lo” controversy, it was my way of reintroducing myself. The title itself carries weight, reflecting my identity and intentions.

Q: This is your first project under DMW 2.0. What has the experience been like since you joined the label?

A: It’s been amazing. Transitioning from an independent artist to having a supportive team has been incredible. It’s like being part of a family.

Q: There has been some discussion around the recognition and appreciation of songwriters in the Afrobeats industry. As someone who co-wrote Davido’s hit song “Unavailable,” what are your thoughts on this topic? Have you personally experienced any challenges or misconceptions related to being a songwriter?

A: Most musicians are songwriters, and vice versa. There are misconceptions, but artists like Davido are changing that narrative, normalizing the importance of songwriting.

Q: Let’s talk about the original “Jaye Lo” music video, it was quite a dramatic moment in your career, and it even caught the great Wole Soyinka’s attention. What was the inspiration behind the video and whose idea was it?

A: The concept was mine, inspired by the Muslim call to prayer. However, I admit to not researching the cultural significance thoroughly. It’s a lesson learned to delve deeper into cultural contexts in the future.

Q: What’s your personal favorite off the album and when should we be expecting visuals?

A: “Easy On Me” featuring Davido is my favorite. It’s dropping soon, so stay tuned for the visuals!

Q: This is a funny question, but It is rumored that you’re Asake’s brother, how true is that?

A: Haha, we’re brothers in the hustle, but not by blood.

Q: Oh okay, noted. Who are some artistes you would love to collaborate with in the future?

A: It depends on the song’s direction, but I’m open to organic collaborations.

Q: With the release of your debut EP “Olori,” what are some of your biggest aspirations and goals for the next chapter of your career? What can your fans expect to see from you in the future, both musically and creatively?

A: I want my audience to not just accept my sound but to understand me better. I aim to cultivate a familial community of fans. Also, I’m eyeing the fashion industry, possibly collaborating with stars like Rahman Jago on a fashion collection. Fashion is another passion of mine.
