What made you realize that music was your path?

 Right from childhood I have always known, something inside tells me I was meant for this... recently I discovered that my grandfather was a music man so I guess it's in the blood

 How would you describe your Pattern of music?

My pattern of music can be best described as Afro fusion, cause I rap,sing and toast (raggae) so it's a blend or fusion of different sounds all under Afrobeat. 

 Which big artiste will you say is your idol. and has he always inspired your music?

Back then it used to be 50cent, but currently i'm inspired by Davido... love his resilience and focus on his career.

They are many but let me name a few that comes tops in th likes of 50cent, Jay Z, Nelly, Eminem, Jah Rule, Sean Paul, Shaggy, Azadus, 2face, Fela, Davido, Burna boy and the list goes on.

Has there been one particular moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

 Yes that was when I droped my single "KOSERE" back then in 2015, i had alot of people feeling the vibez I thought I had blown at that moment, someone even gave me a huge amount of money to make a video... that feeling I can never forget

Who's your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?

I would say Davido, that guy's star power is off the chain, having him on a track means more fame and funds.

 How do you plan to sustain your popularity because some artistes fade away after few hit tracks?

 I don't have any plans on that, I will keep doing what I do until my mind says otherwise... only God knows tomorrow.

What differentiates you from other talented and young artistes?

My voice and my personality...I stand out in anything I do... My originality can not be over emphasized

So what is your creative process like?

 Some time it's the beat and other times I come with the chorus then I make the beat then the verse comes freestyle...I don't really write my songs...

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Asides from music...I'm a business yeah business, buying and selling,import and export...

 Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV?

Yes of course,shows,clubs, parties and so on.
But am more of a studio to work on songs in the studio that's where my strength is... not much of a performer

 How do you handle mistakes during a performance?

Hmmm...I just continue performing till my time is up. I go with the flow and manage the situation the Best way I can at the moment

What is one message you would give to your fans out there?

 My message is love what you do and keep doing what you love... not everyone is to like you no matter how good you yourself and live life freely.
