Mikillz: I Put a Lot of Energy into My Music


Mikillz, whose real name is Irabor Michael Oziegbe is an afro-pop artiste who started out in Surulere, Lagos. Within a short span of his career, he has been able to produce great sounds. In this chat with Tosin Clegg, he talks about his career, mentors and more

What kind of music do you do?

 Basically, my genre of music is Afro pop and I have been doing music for the past two years; this year makes it the third year.

 What’s different about your music?

What makes my music exceptional, to be honest, is working on my sound but what I can say about my music is that I put energy into it and I make it classic.

Who inspires your music?

 My role model ever since has always been Burna Boy. His music inspires me and one of my other mentors is Runtown, who is a great artiste. And they are acts that came from nothing to something. But, I hold more to Meek Mill, internationally, I give major credits to his grass to grace story.

  Where do you see yourself in five years?

 I see myself in the next five years as an important person and I will be a mentor to different people. I believe people will definitely learn from me.
