“It was an opportunity of a lifetime. Many young artistes out there want to be signed by Don Jazzy, so it is an opportunity I am grateful for. I remember times when there was no opportunity and I kept working. But, God finally answered my prayers, and here we are. We are still working.”

“I have had big inspirations from way back. Lagbaja is one huge influence on my music. I also love Celine Dion, as well as the late Tupac and Notorious BIG. I also listened to lots of Fela’s music when I was a child, and that of many others, because my dad often played music in the house.
One thing is certain— all those people had influence on my views and how I wanted to go about my music. Today, I am influenced by the likes of Drake, Wizkid, Burnaboy and Davido, who inspire me in different ways to believe in African music.”
