The brand Acetune seems to be getting a lot of acceptances in the music scene lately, tell me about what makes your style of music different?
What makes my style different is just me, being me; being myself. I love music so much and I put my all in it.
You grew up in Ajegunle, Tell me a little bit about your background. Did this influence your style of music?
I was born in Ajegunle and was there for only two years. It really did influence my style of music as it set the ball rolling for me. Daddy Showkey even performed at my Naming Ceremony alongside other popular celebrities who were present. So yes, it did.
