Do you produce just gospel music or you produce non gospel content?
Are you selective of content and Artiste to produce? And what are your reasons?
Yeah very selective of Artist and content .
Reason being that I don’t subscribe to mediocrity
For how long have you been a producer and when did you experience the greatest satisfaction in production business?
I started production as far back as 1998 using Yamaha Psr 630 but I officially started working at the studio 2003.
My greatest satisfaction started from the day I decided to stick to Gospel alone
What are your challenges in the industry generally?
The only and major challenge in the Gospel music industry is the inability to support and promote ourselves
Do you think Gospel music producers are recognized as expected?
Would you say you have your sound Or you carved a niche for yourself in the industry?
Yes by the grace of God I’ve been able to carve out my own sound
What are your challenges or limitations working with gospel artiste?
The major challenge with Gospel music ministers is lack of finance.
We gathered that you have worked with great artistes and on great songs. Where do you see yourself in 5 years.
By the mercies of God, I see myself where God wants me to be.
Knowing you produced “Ekwueme by Prosper Ochimana” (Probably the biggest gospel music in 2017), How has that affected your work and what are the challenges?
Yeah Ekwueme was actually my launch to the world! After producing and release of Ekwueme, people began to admire the atmosphere created in the song by the Holyspirit. I received calls and messages from all over (Germany, US, Uk, Ghana, Liberia, Senegal,) and all they were saying was “I listened to Ekwueme and I was really blessed”, “I want you to produce me” and all that.
That actually kept me on my toes and made me invested more in the studio because its no longer a Nigeria thing, it involves the world!
I’ve had situation where people finished recording there songs and brought to me for mixing and all they ask is can you create that Ekwueme atmosphere on it ? And my response always is “I can’t create an atmosphere, its the Holy Spirit that creates the atmosphere”
Aside Ekwueme, which other widely received song have you produced?
I’ve produced couple of great songs, here are few i could remember, Lion of Judah by David G, Jesus is Here by Emma sings, Yaweh by David G, OMEMMA by Emma sings, Glorified by Benjamin Israel any many more..
What genre of music would you depick if you were asked to stick to a genre???
Genre? I don’t really have a particular genre because first I’m a musician before being a producer. So its expected of me to be able to produce all genres of music
What do you have to tell other aspiring producers??
Patience and consistency is the key to success. Keep doing your best, never stop learning and improving yourself.
What should we be expecting from you and when??
Expectations! I produce beautiful and awesome songs everyday by the help of the Holy Spirit so expect good music everyday.
How do we connect with you via social media?
Thanks for your time and God bless you.
God bless you too. Do have a pleasant day ahead .
