I didn’t decide to start music.I just found myself doing it. It took me about 7-8 months to put together the tape due to the strike that had happen back home.I could not get a hold of the producers.
237Showbiz : On social Media you once ranted about Cameroonian fans being selfish and not supporting artists well enough? What made you to say so? was it out of frustration? Or do you think you were not getting enough support?
I never ranted. I just posted a lil something about how I felt on my social media. The guy that posted it on the blog. Was just angry or frustrated at me. Because I didn’t help him pay for his domain name when I had promise I would hahah.
237Showbiz : A comment was made on 237showbiz.com under your mixtape such as „The guy is wack,….but he can do better“.How do you deal with critics like this?
Hahah. I don’t look at it as critics he was probably listening to it on his Nokia Phone. And he probably a Reniss fan or something like that. Wrong target audience

I rather listen to those Artists singing on French than Igbo. So I like it!! Keep and do what you gotta do to win
237Showbiz : How would you define your music? In your recent mixtape you used a local dialect known as Limbum, dont you think that limits your fan reach?
Music can’t be defined. Yes I think its about that time I introduce my real identity. I can do that through my local dialect Limbum. That’s how i started my songs anyways. And No it does not limit my fan reach it actually makes it better.
237Showbiz : IF you had to choose two from the following for a Collabo who will they be? and why? –> jovi, pascal, Mic monsta, Skidi Boy, ko-c, Tenor , Maahlox
I would do a great song with Jovi. Just because We can vibe and speak our wimbum dialect on it . And Tenor because I am a fan of his.
