After a much-publicised spat between rapper Godwon and Seringetti Music which signed him in 2010, the artiste whose real name is Neyu Godwin Nyan revealed during the weekend that he is back to the label. This is contrary to earlier reports that he and DJ Zeez had left a stable that also has Hakym da Dream and Joshbeatz signed on to long term deals.
“I never left Seringetti and I am glad I lived in the United States because it gave me an upbringing of loyalty,” he said. “Even though I had a bad taste in my mouth about Seringeti, I am always loyal. I am just glad to be grinding again because I think we have the potential to be one of the biggest labels in the country, if not the biggest. We have a force of a label but need to put everything together.”
With his first album and a mix tape swiftly following, he said plans are underway for another album that will see some prominent musicians featuring. Already he is poised to shoot the video for “Omo Ele” with Banky W and his “Give it to Me” track trending on Notjustok.com
“I just dropped “Give it to Me” on Notjustok.com and it is the first time I ever did a 16 bar verse in pure Hausa. I want to learn different things and give listeners different things. I believe I am very different from any rapper and want to show people that. Uniqueness has a market of its own.”
