“I’d say we make afro-pop. I don’t just make afrobeats… I make music. I draw inspiration from all over. From dancehall reggae, afrobeat, American music as well. Whatever I listen to, I draw inspiration from.”

“I’m not really seeing myself as the one champion of the movement. I’m just contributing my own little part. Keep the movement moving, and take it there, you know?”

Also, the ‘Ojuelegba’ singer admits Fela is big inspiration to his music but that he’s not trying to live like Fela or do what he has done.

“Every artist has that one person that inspired them, or a group of artists that inspired them,” he says. “Fela happens to be a very big inspiration to my music, Bob Marley as well. So I’m just here spreading good vibes. I’m not trying to live like Fela or do what he has done. I just appreciate everything he did when he was alive and I am here to create my own legacy.”
