I’ve been working on my album for a while now but I’m still trying to put some finishing touches to it. I will be releasing it soon but that would be after I get back from my US tour. However, Star Boy has a lot of input in my new album that would be released soon and I still have a working relationship with Wizkid.”

“To be honest, I have more fans outside the country than in Nigeria. Nowadays, one can actually go online and find out where majority of downloads, streaming and other Internet activities come from. And I have discovered that most of my fans are in the US, followed by Canada and London. Obviously, they want me there more and that’s why I usually go there on tour. I had amazing experiences when I travelled out of the country on tour. I went to about 14 cities in Europe and America.”
