danfo driver - Copy melon2 melon3

Azubuike Henry Oghenemario popularly known as Mad Melon of the Danfo Driver fame, you can take a man out of Ajegunle but you cannot take Ajegunle out of the man. After hitting fame and fortune a few years ago, the musician moved out of Ajegunle, a sprawling ghetto and settled in Iyana-Iba, a quiet suburb of Lagos. But now he has retraced his steps back to Ajegunle because, according to him, Iyana Iba was too quiet for his liking. In a chat with The Entertainer, Mad Melon who recently released a10-tracker entitled, Back in D Days, speaks on why he parted ways with his colleague, Mountain Black and decided to go solo. He also talks about his future plans among other issues.


The name Mad Melon: The name, Mad Melon came as a result of my love for Egusi, my best soup. I assume the microphone to be my melon. Each time I eat Egusi soup, it makes me feel different, and each time I hold the microphone, it enhances my mood to sing on stage. My name is Azubuike Henry Oghenemario popularly known as Mad Melon. I was born and bred in Ajegunle but I hail from Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State. I had my primary and secondary school education in Lagos.

Mountain Black and I were in a group and we sang a song entitled, Danfo Driver which became very popular, but we could not get much exposure because our record label then did not promote our works very well. Right now, I’ve decided to do something different which made me to go solo but Mountain Black and I are still together, we’ll release an album if the need arises.

I love life, love God and am a collector of rare items like the ash of a phoenix, egg of a unicorn, tears of an Angel and I drink pap with chopsticks.
Creativity found me, though I wasn't lost and am still paying the price of a chosen one.
It has always been the nature of man to confuse genius with insanity.
