Read excerpts below:
On his favourite Nigerian designers
Hassan Lagos, Mai Atafo and Ellan Red are three great designers on my radar.
On the biggest lesson since starting music
My biggest lesson of all time is that you have to keep grinding. It may be slow but it has to be steady. Grinding slow but grinding still is the watchword. And I would not say there is anything I had to unlearn as life is a steady knowledge quest.
On his music and personality
My music is just a part of my personality. To me, music is greatly inspired by what happens around you. It’s in the way you perceive humanity and your ability to creatively convert it into a rhythmic body of sounds. My personality comes into play when I now turn my perception of what happens around me in my own line of thought.
