What’s new in your kitty and how has your music career been?
I just dropped my new single titled, Oruko Jesu. A song which talks about the various things the name of Jesus can do for us. And as for my music career, it has been growing. Before Oruko Jesu, I dropped a single titled, God Bless Me for Your Eyes. I gave it the title because after D’Beats, winners of Star Quest 2011 was disbanded after our one-year reign, a lot of people thought that I would not want to sing again. So that was what prompted the song. But I am very passionate about my musical career.
What were your formative years like?
Growing up had its ups and downs. My dad died when I was about eight or nine years old and my mother have been there all the way to support us. I come from a family of seven. I and my twin brother are the last born. Right from childhood, I have always loved singing. When I was still in the church choir, every Saturday which is choir practice she would ask me if I was not going for rehearsal if she saw me at home. I will say my mother has always taken an interest in my music career. Also, my brothers and sisters have been very supportive as well.
What is the relationship with your twin brother like?
We are very close and it has been nice all the way though he is married now. I feel a little bit jealous because he wouldn’t have time for me anymore. But he is growing and I am happy for him. He sings too, but he is a pastor.
What was the motivation when you to entered for the 2011 Star Quest musical show?
I heard that the last band was signed on to Kennis Music and I love that record label so much. However, I went into the competition determined to win as an individual but thank God my band, D’Beats won. During our one-year reign, we were able to come out with an album titled, D’Beats Goes On and we were signed to Now Muzik label for one year. During the audition, I didn’t know that I was going to make it into the house. When I went for the audition in Benin City I had almost lost my voice and I prayed to God to help me make it through. In the end, I made it through because the judges saw behind my cracked voice. See More On page2
