Q: Why did you decide to do music?

A: I make Afrobeats music.
Q: What has the journey been like?

Q: Who are your models in the music industry?
A: Okay, the likes of Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade, Burna Boy are perfect musicians to me. So I want to make music not for the clout but for the love and passion. I appreciate performances and I think these great acts have proven themselves to the world what it means to be a musician.
Q: Wizkid, Davido or Burna?
A: Abeg oooo.. three goats.. Wizkid na baba.. Davido na baba.. Burna na baba..
