Where in Nigeria are you from?
Tell us of your journey into music.
My journey started at a tender age 12. Music for me has a blessing coming from a place where nobody ever expected anything better but failure. Music has given me power and voice.
What are you working on right now?
I’m working on a new song and trust me it’s gonna be a blast. Also my album is almost set to be released.
How is it being a Nigerian musician in Italy?
Over here in Italy, it has not been easy. People always tell me to go back home if I really wanna blow. Artists in Italy don’t get much respect. I thank God I’m still in the game. I believe I will make it someday.
What’s your type of music called?
I do hip hop…let me say afro hip hop.
Are you ever going to perform in Nigeria?
Yeah…I have a couple of shows coming up in Nigeria soon.
Who are your best 5 Nigerian artists?
2Face Idibia, Timaya, Idris, P-Square, and 9ice.

Nollywoodgossip wishes you the best.
Thanks very much.
