Kindly introduce yourself to our readers.
My real names are Daniel Eche Oka Amanyi, my stage name is D’money. I’m from Otukpa local government in Benue state. I’m from a family of 4 children and I’m the immediate younger brother of Terry G and a member of the House of Gingah.
I won’t say I have accomplished what I was sent to fulfill on this earth. And in the music scene, I’ll say I’m still on the process to success. After successful singles out I’m still here working. I have a new single out titled Valentine. Love is a great source of inspiration to all and the solution to all the problems in the world. I’m a great fan of love.
The level at which music is growing in Nigeria is really fast. Our music is becoming a trend all over the world, not like before when we were not seen as serious and Nigeria was only regarded as a country filled with corrupt citizens. Now other international acts want to associate and collaborate with Nigerian artists because our market here is big. The music industry is big and competitive. Any artist coming out must tidy up himself in all directions and come out strong or he or she will be been seen as a loser, that’s the market for you
I got much love for all of them, both sexes. I think I’m comfortable hanging out with beautiful and smart chics, and the guys are the energy behind the struggle, love them both.
It was really difficult growing up. As a kid I had to hawk, go to school bare foot. I went through a lot of challenges. I look back and thank God for bringing me this far.
Advice to up comers.
The industry is not where you can come and sing anything and go, it will backfire on you, do your homework well, pray, be humble and work hard, then try new tricks in song composition.
Things people don’t know.
I don’t smoke and I drink only a little.I hate noisy environment. I love being pampered if you wanna get the best out of me.
I’m 99.9% single, hoping to get married someday. Marriage is a beautiful thing ordained my God.
Nollywoodgossip wishes you the best.
