Please introduce yourself to our readers.
I’m Adabamu Abel Zino, from Oyede in Isoko north L.G.A of Delta state. I love music from childhood. I joined a band at the age of 22, after secondary education, and was made the lead vocalist. I studied accounting in I.M.T (Institute of Management and Technology Enugu) while I was still with the band. I was later discovered in PH by an Amsterdam and Lagos based record label, D&I entertainment, owned by twin brothers.
My first album with D&I was successful with hit songs like Zarokome and Pepperminta in it. We had issues but settled later. I decided to leave after the expiration of our contract. I’m currently with Zane Entertainment Company. I have one single out ft. Flavour.
How was growing up like?
Man, my papa get money well well before he come later poor again. No be small thing I see o. From butter to kpako na em bad pass. I lost my dad early at young age too. I was about 17 and had struggled to support mom, you know. But thank God one way or the other, I was able to achieve my education up to tertiary level.
What would you say about the Nigerian music industry of today?
There is serious competition right now in the music industry. So many talented artists are actually taking the music industry to the next level by regularly releasing great songs and creatively interesting videos, so amazing the level the music industry has gotten.
How do you react to your female fans?
I love my fans both males and females. I appreciate them and I try as much as possible to relate with them in a friendly manner. Whenever I’m in their midst or when we meet on the street or through the social media.
What is your advice to upcoming musicians?
Upcoming musicians should believe in themselves first before others. They should believe in God which is the ultimate and be very sure that they’re good in what they have chosen. And also work very hard and remain focused.

I’m single. And my view on marriage is that marriage is God’s divine arrangement for mankind and should be honoured and appreciated.
