I did not return to music because of my failed politics - 9ice
9ice has reacted to rumours that he went back to music because he failed
in his political career. He said, “When I got into politics I realised
that whatever level you attain in life, there are people who are more
successful. If you think you are the richest man alive, politics would
teach you that there are richer men on earth.
There are a lot of things
that need to be done and a lot of wrongs that need to be right. We need
someone like a prophet to lead this country. We need someone with the
fear of God. It goes beyond having a degree; we need leaders with the
fear of God. We need someone like Pastor Adeboye to rule this country,
besides he is educated and that is a plus. We need someone with good
conscience and the fear of God. We don’t have that in Nigeria.”
Already the singer is back in the studio working on his forthcoming
album due to be released in the first quarter of 2016. He told Saturday
Beats that he did not return to music because he failed in politics.
It is not true that I am returning to music after
failing in my political endeavours. People would always talk. When I
went into politics, people said that it was because I was no longer
making money through music. Music is my passion and even if it does not
put food on my table, I would continue to pursue my passion. Music is
something I can do for free. If it pays my bills fine, but if it
doesn’t, I would still continue to do music. They have not heard the
last of my political sojourn; come 2019, I would contest again.
“My new album would be out before the first quarter of 2016 ends. I am
not sure if I would feature any A-list artiste but I would surprise my
fans. I would be experimenting on new sounds. I would do things that
people do not think I can do. I will also be singing about my experience
in politics,” 9ice said.
The singer hinted that he already has a song, ‘Abefe’, ready and it would be released today.
“The name of my new song is ‘Abefe’. It
is the story of a guy that fell in love with a girl and all he had to
show the girl was his good intention rather than lavishing money on the
girl like other guys who had tried that. The song is from a true life
story of a couple who would get married today,” he said.
