How long have you been in the music industry?
I started singing professionally way back in 2003, when I joined a group called ‘Da Roots’, a three-man band which consisted of Rumide, Sam and myself. We rocked the town and traveled through the western states of the country to bless lives through our music-ministration.
What is the genre of your music?
My style of gospel music largely consists that of R n B, Hip-Fuji, Jazz, Ewi (Traditional Yoruba chant).
What are your biggest challenges as an artiste?
Challenges are common in life because that is the true test of your faith in Christ; you must face them and overcome them to become better and stronger. I just desire that the industry practitioners, especially the gospel ministers, should be more united. When there is unity of purpose, we can easily depopulate the kingdom of the devil. That is only what can take the industry to the next level.
Who have you worked with so far?
Wow! Quite a lot of people, but the ones that readily come to mind are Big Bolaji and Tosin Martins. But if you mean who I worked with on my debut album, Testimony, then I’ve worked with Nosa, Efe Nathan, Big Bob and Ayobamidele.
Who are the acts you intend to work with?
The industry is blessed with wonderful and loving people. I would love to work with anybody once I’m led to do so.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Five years is too long for the manifestation of God’s blessing in my life. I want to become a force to be reckoned with as far as Gospel music is concerned. I mean I want to be known as the one that carries the Fire of God, such that when I minister, it will be backed-up with supernatural happenings. Of course, I want to be on the big platforms too. But so far, it has been testimony galore and, in the future, it will still be testimony all the way.
