African China may have been under the radar for a while,but he says it’s for a reason ..He also says he has made alot of investments that can compete with what Wizkid and Davido can do with their money..He told Vanguard he is also the Fela of our time,
Will you say you’ve made the kind of money the likes of WizKid and Davido are making these days?
No, I did not collect the kind of money they are collecting now. But I think you should know something, we pushed the bill from 30 thousand naira to 8 hundred / one million. I made investments that can compete with whatever they do with their money. Therefore, I don’t regret not making what they are making these days.
With the rate of upcoming artistes and so many known names in the industry, do you think your kind of music will stand the test of time in Nigeria?
You should ask yourself and tell yourself the truth. My songs has lasted 17years now; which of these songs do you think will last two years? I’m not scared of the huge number of artistes out there, because I know what I’ve got and will give my best to my fans.
It is not as if I’m boasting but I have dedicated so much of my time and energy to it because I have already set a standard and that standard will not drop but will continue to rise because I am born to sing and entertain people. That’s why I am “African China” the legendary, take it or leave, I am the Fela of our time.
What is happening to your career years after you released your last album?
Well, I just took a break to bond with my family. I didn’t go off the music circuit but had been in the studio working on a new album that is about to be released.
And my silence has nothing to do with financial challenges, don’t forget am still the C.E.O. of 45Entertainment.
