Adams Ibrahim Adebola, a k a, VJ Adams is known to be one of the foremost television presenter, and a musician, who subsequently turned an actor, but was said to be an ‘occasional musician,’ since he rarely releases albums like a professional musician.
Nevertheless, while, in a chat with Showtime, according to the Vanguard report, VJ Adams was trying to explain why he does not release music frequently like musicians, such as Davido, and Wizkid, among others. “Wow! Such a shot at me. I’m more of a project guy, I like the body of works; I’m not into the single business even though that’s where the world is right now.
So, I’d rather go back, record for a couple of months, put a body of work together and put it out. Next body of work is scheduled to be out in July. The last one did pretty well, so I’m grateful”, he said.
In another development:
Keeny Ice, the Ghanaian rapper, is set to rocking African airwaves with debut EP ‘Boarder Vibes’, as reported by the Vanguard. In response to critics who think he hasn’t defined himself as either a singer or a rapper, he said; “I’m a perfect blend of both a singer and a rapper.
“Even though I think my rap competence is a lot more. I am into words, painting pictures with words, though I don’t have Wande Coal’s kind of voice, but auto tune can help us with that singing part. I can hold my own,” he said
Speaking further, he revealed the most challenging aspects of his music career so far. “The most challenging part of my music career is the transition from making music without putting my vocals on it, then to put my vocals on it. Of course, I was worried about how people will receive it.
“Even though for the most part of being in the studio, I get excited but knowing fully well that I made a success from TV first before my music. Usually, Nigerians would be like ‘Stay and do one thing’, but of course, I’m not about that lifestyle. That transition from just putting out music and then putting my vocals on it was really a bit challenging”, he said.
