The 'Komole' singer speaks confidently of his abilities to shine on despite working with former EME label star mate Wizkid.
Speaking to Sunday Scoop, the now Baseline Music act tells confidently of his belief in himself and his talent for singing and rap.
He says singing has always been what comes more naturally to him, but had to rap because that was the ''in-thing" at the time, using that statement to buttress his point that he was never once pressurized by Wizkid's talent and fame.
“I have never been under pressure from Wizkid. I have always been a singer even though I became more popular as a rapper. When I was in Kaduna, I wrote songs but rap was the in-thing back then, so that’s what I concentrated on more. I believe that artistes have their individual styles and it’s not necessary to compare one artiste with another. I had a wonderful time with EME and they contributed so much to my career. But I’ve moved on and I’m grateful to God that I’m doing well in my career.”
And on what keeps him going with the music in discouraging times, Skales says there is a greater purpose for the music he creates, which is to impact lives one way or another.
“I have a very deep passion for what I do. Anyone who knows me would tell you that I’m very particular about my music and nothing is more important than that to me. I am not in it just for the money but to make an impact and also touch lives along the way.” the 'Ajaga' singer explained.
This he proved right with his recent signing of an artist named Santos to his self-owned label Ohk Entertainment.
