Q-Most embarrassing moment?
A-This happened way back, as a teenager with my accapella group, while singing we went off key on stage. I felt like the ground should open and swallow me.
A-My favorite color is red and white.
Q-Your challenges in the industry/profession?:
A-The challenges am faced with is not having sponsors or financial support to push my music to the height i want it to be, and the people you expect to believe in you and your works, they do so with lip service and no action.
Q-Opinion about the industry?
A-Most especially the gospel music industry, there is too much hatred, envy and the competitive spirit is so unhealthy, everyone always want to be seen, no attitude of helping your fellow artiste. its a very bad spirit and the problem needs to be tackled.
Q-Your advice to upcoming talents?
A-My advice for upcoming acts is simple, know your calling, gifts and talents and be focus and tenacious towards achieving your dreams, never give up no matter how low you get to, if you are tenacious, you will always WIN.
Q-What the future holds/new projects?
A-My debut album with almost 12 tracks will be released in a couple of months but will be releasing a single before the end of November title ”CHIOMA”, its a song that talks about how GOD has been faithful to me despite me disappointing him, HE never abandoned me no matter how bad i fail HIM. The song was produced by two prolific producers ZENITH and NdTUNES. And i am dedicating the song to the three women in my life that pushed me to greatness, Pastor Deborah Iwalokun, Chioma Ojiabo and Barrister Efe Anaughe.
I have two awards to my credit;
HUMANITARIAN AWARD from HOPE FOUNDATION in 2014 for my years of helping accident victims
NEXTRATED FANS RECOGNITION AWARD for one of my songs as BEST GOSPEL POP 2015.
