How did you start producing and what gave you the motivation to stay with it?

I had a group of friends back then in high school. We were like d kings of rap in my whole school so I thought recording a track would be dope. Then I started making research on how to record my own song. I and my other friends recorded our first Track and it was Hot Nigga by Bobby Shura. it was recorded with a phone and was mixed unprofessionally. We even did a video for it lol. It was wack though. Since then I learnt a lot about music production and wanted to get better at it

When did you start producing professionally?

I started producing professionally 2years ago when I got my first Ever Condenser Mic with a Soundcard.

Was there any form of objection from your parents?

No at all. They Gave me all the support I needed.

Who was the first person to believe in you?

I was the first person to believe in myself. Lol.. My Elder Brother played a major role in my career. First of all, he gave me his Laptop and he installed Fl Studio in it. I practiced non stop till I got to where I am.

In your opinion, what classifies as a good mix and a good master?

The essence of Mixing and mastering is to correct mix balance issues and enhance particular sonic characteristics in a Track so basically a Track shouldn’t lack weight and clarity.

What does it really takes to be a successful producer?

Consistency And Endurance and lot of prayer

How many instruments do you play?

Errrrmmmm I am not an instrumentalist but I can play the Piano to an extent and I can also play the Drum Set but I haven’t practiced in a while.

What is the inspiration behind most of your beats?

Most of my beats are inspired by the Artist I work with.

How many times have you fallen down, so to speak,and had to get back up and get yourself motivated again to continue?

I try my possible best not to lose hope because it’s not easy making Music everyday and the big money is not coming in the way it’s meant to. But I love what I do so no matter what happens I will still be in the game.

What is your greatest challenge as a producer?

My Greatest Challenge is getting to work with a Top musician. It’s not easy to gain access to any of them talk-less of them laying some vocals on a beat.

Tell me about your latest project

My latest Project was Fell Out it was an EP I released on my birthday February 24, it talks about failed side situation of life and everyone can relate to it.

Most Nigerian songs lacks good Lyrical content. What is your take about this ?

There’s no song that lacks content you just need to know what point of view the musician wrote the song from. Although most Nigerian songs talk about Love, Women and money, just because they talk about this things doesn’t mean they lack content

What do you really think can be done to checkmate the lack of good Lyrical contents in our songs?

There’s always a story behind a song Good or Bad. The more exposed an artist is the better his/her lyrics,

Do you have any project you are working on presently?

Errrhhh I am always working on a project but no big project for now

How can artists get across to you for music productions?
