“It’s a blend of Afro hip-hop with strong indigenous vocals. Though I admire all the A-list rappers in Nigeria, Olamide, Reminisce, M.I, Phyno etc, however, I am confident I have an edge especially with the new vibe and unique delivery I will be introducing to the industry.
“Growing up in an environment with a peer group that affects you negatively can be discouraging, but I see all that as an inspiration to be better. In Fact, that is part of what built me to who I am today,” he said.
