Rapper Recollects How 'Oleku' Was Made

He also reveals the nature of the deal he has with Chocolate City

In his interview with Olisa Adibua on The Truth, Ice Prince narrated how his biggest single 'Oleku' featuring BrymO. The award winning act revealed that 'Oleku' was originally supposed to be on a Sarz beat, but Jesse Jagz came into the studio that day, and changed the beat all together.

"Oleku was supposed to be on that Sarz beat. Jesse came into the studio and heard me singing that, and was playing the chords on the keyboard, and it sounded stupidly sweet. Under 30 minutes, Jesse put that beat together, and I recorded the verse" he said.

"I called BrymO and he came through to the studio. I had the melody ready, and I needed to talk Yoruba....I got support from BrymO to put the words together, and we made the record" he said.

His next single was 'Super Star', and Ice Prince admitted that there was a lot of pressure on him to produce a huge follow-up to 'Oleku'. The song was successful enough to establish Ice Prince as one of the biggest rappers in the country.

In the interview, Ice Prince also hinted that he might be setting up his own record label next year.
