When did you realize music was your thing?
I realized Music was my thing when I was still little, I had a special love for any Music that comes on and I’ll try to sing along with the artiste until I started making beats for myself with my Hands and write some lyrics on it and go display it to my friends and they were loving it..some even joined me and we kept doing that after school, and we had people who would wait back to watch us display sometimes.So the fact that I was able to fascinate them with some rhymes and attitude made me love doing music more.
What got you into music?
Normally, without even actual music, i loved writing poems filled with a lot of Rhymes and Wordplays and I always loved someone to hear it and feel what i felt when i was writing it. And as they did, I realized they loved rap more so I made it more of Rap than just poem.
Moreover, It was the joy that people felt when I give a deep line or wordplay.

My Music genre is Afro Dancehall, Hip hop and Trap Music.
If not music what will you do?
Family expectations to become a pharmacist and stuff but we have to find ourselves and know what makes us happy. If Not Music then I’ll do Music.

What is the best experience in your music career so far?
The best Experience in My Music career was when I unofficially released a Single titled African Bae around 2017, i was hooked up for a lot of show and got so many fan love and became popular in the street that time and I was getting calls from Friends in Lagos, owerri and other states telling me that they heard my song on Popular stations like Cool FM ,Hot FM ,Magic FM. That was actually the best time of My live.
Even my mother stopped Poking me from that day up till today about my Music because of what I let out that time.
what is the worst experience in your music career?
My Worst Experiences were during some shows I went for and the DJ encountered problems in the middle of my performance. And the people start getting grumpy and stuff. Bad though.
Funniest moment so far?
My funniest moment so far during my Career was when I went for a show with a team I hooked up with(VGK).We had our introduction on stage and we took the Mic only to realize we were about to Give a live performance because the DJ didn’t have the accessories for a normal stage performance.We went off the stage with some Jokes and got the Fans laughing and stuffs then when we returned after finding a way to sort the problem,and the songs started and we were already on the intro before the phone we were the DJ was using started ringing, The whole crowd was mad with laughter and it was also funny to us.
Then we continued after that call was cut off and after the successful performance, we were given the Biggest applause, Bruh,feeling was very sweet.
