Veteran Nigerian singer, Sunny Nneji, seemed like a proud idol when he was asked in an interview with Saturday Beats about his opinion on the fact that most Nigerian artistes like Flavour, P-Square and even Tekno are now singing his style of music, hip-life.
The veteran singer told Saturday Beats that he was happy about the development and it showed that he did not waste his time being the pioneer of the music genre.
“When I see what Flavour, P-Square, Tekno and others are doing, it makes me feel proud. It makes me feel like I was not wasting my time all this while because they are following in my footsteps. It also shows how important our indigenous music is. You can run around and do other forms of music because sometimes my music is eclectic but predominantly, I need to connect with my immediate audience. I am happy with the fact that the younger generation have embraced hip-life music. It makes me feel proud because I have been a pioneer of it,” he said.
The artiste who recently released a new song, ‘Aeroplane Turner,’ addressed the hardship Nigerians are currently facing and proffered some solutions through the song. He further hinted that his album was near completion and he has collaborations with artistes like CDQ and Phyno.
“The song is new so I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but I just want the song to connect the way I have seen it in my mind and it should connect with people. I leave everything in the hands of God. I have done my bit. I had a vision that I had to do something to inspire my people through these trying times. The perfection of the song would come from God and he is the one that would position my new song,” he said.
