Read excerpts of his interview below:
How do you feel winning your first award as an actor?
I feel so grateful to God Almighty, my family, fans and most especially Funke Akindele, CEO Scene One Production for giving me the opportunity to showcase my talent, believe me sincerely, I never believed I could win because the category for the Best act in a comedy, movie or TV series was a keen one because other people in the category are talented and have been in the field before me.
With winning your first Africa Magic Viewer’s choice Award, are you going to consider taking acting fully?
If the roles keep coming, I will definitely act, I can’t leave my music. I can only combine both together and make things work out without disturbing each other. I am positive that more awards will come before the end of the year.
As a graduate of Law and a qualified Barrister, what inspired you to drop law for music?
It’s a matter of passion. It’s not that I don’t like the legal profession, law is a wonderful and prestigious profession but I am also somebody that if I follow that line, I will still be successful because there is brain upstairs a lot up there. But I so much love write or record songs and also performing on stage because it gives me maximum satisfaction and there is no way i will not follow my heart. That is why I am here today.
Are you into a relationship?
I want to keep that one aside for now because relationship can be distraction. When somebody loves a woman so much he abandons his work and every other thing besides, I don’t want that to be my story. I am still single and I don’t have anybody.
If you had the opportunity to date any Nigerian celebrity, who would it be?
Maybe Chidinma or Yemi Alade, please don’t forget these are beautiful ladies and I will like to date them.
