But before then, if you want to delve into the Nigerian entertainment scene, I think you can learn something from fresh act TBOY.
• Hello, can we meet you sir?
* Good day, My name is Tochukwu Ezeji, Aka TBOY.
•What’s your genre of music & what inspires your music?
*Well I’m an Afro-pop artiste. I was actually inspired by my father, who did music in his youthful age but didn’t take it up professionally. He always played songs from Westlife, Micheal Jackson, Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, to mention a few and he also enjoyed listening to highlife & Afro beat music like Fela, Sunny Bobo, Oliver De Coque etc. He barely listened to Rap music. I believe that’s what drew my attention and focus to singing.
•What would you say are your two greatest weakness or challenges?
*Lol… no weakness! But challenges I face? Let’s say it’s still the same thing everyone faces when coming up and that is acceptance of my style of music & finance; based on the current situation of the country.
