'Greatman' is not a familiar name to us in the music industry right now but chances are we will be hearing this name in the coming months. The singer/songwriter, who will embark on a musical tour of the USA courtesy of gospel act BOUQUI, is set to revolutionaze the Gospel music industry in Nigeria.
He reveals why the term 'Gospel Musician' does not fully define him in this interview with ABISOLA ALAWODE of allafrica.com. Read below
How did your song with super producer Gospelondebeatz come about?
It was all coincidental. On October 25, 2014, a colleague of mine sent me a text that Gospel wanted to meet with me. I was so excited that I quickly freshened up and ran down to Maitama where we were supposed to meet. We recorded the first track titled Farawemi and he called me back to do a couple of more songs. That was how the whole Gospel angle came about
Your style of music is unique...
Yes it is. I know of some other guys who also rap and sing in the gospel genre but are not on my level. So I think it's safe to say that for now, I'm the only one in my lane.
Seeing that you have performed at different shows, private events and churches, how would you describe the reception you've gotten so far?
