You are here for the AFRIMA and was nominated for one of the categories, how do you feel?
I feel so good and proud of myself. I have been working on a lot of projects and for me to be nominated means AFRIMA saw what I did last year. I can’t wait.
What are your expectations?
Only God knows because what I know is I did a great job last year only God will decide if I get the award or not.

You have worked with a couple Nigerian artists how is your relationship with them?
Honestly I have a good relationship with Nigerian artists and they are very hard-working and when it comes to work they are ready and which is why we have a good bond when it comes to work. Every friend of mine back home appreciates them so much.
So who else are looking at collaborating with?
Honestly I have done a couple of collaborations with every artist here in Nigeria. I have some projects with Nigerian artists but I want to drop it first then take it up from there.
How would you compare the Nigerian music industry to that of Tanzania?
They are doing very good. I would say I am really proud of them because they do what other countries want to do.
