HOW did music start for you? Well, I have been in the music game since I was in secondary school. But I was doing rap at that time before I switched to commercial music, just to do something creative.
Did you switch to commercial music because rap wasn’t paying you?
Rap is not my way, so I had to find another way, which is commercial music; it is the main thing in Nigeria now.
You did a song sometime ago tittle Awan tobo se
(Cuts in)Due to my kind of music, I have to feature people who do something similar. They do Afro-music too.
How was your growing up like?
Me nah ghetto boy oh right from time. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. . I went to the United Senior High School .
Jamrex naw on Afrikanbaze media
How did you come about your previous hit, To bo se
I have always wanted to sound different because there are lots of party songs out there and there was no money to promote the song myself; so, I had to do something different and unique. So, I decided to take it to the street show and called my producer, hennykorg, to cook up the beat; and then, we worked together to make up the hit.
Yeah, I am -Ibadan, half-Lagos. So, if you want to pay me in Lagos, it is okay by me and if you want to pay me from Ibadan, it’s alright. So, I am everywhere like MTN.
What brought about the song?
As I said, I love doing Afro-centric music and African songs. So, Ibadan was just a freestyle song and I didn’t want to promote it. But we decided to work on it and see how much we could push the song.
With the high rate of competition in the industry now, how do you intend to break into the industry?
We are coming with a caterpillar oh (laughs). We are coming with full force. This is because the Afrikanbaze is doing well now and we are focusing on jamrex. My producer and the rest of the gang are coming out to promote ourselves because there is no one to promote us. We are just fighting for ourselves. You know, it is not easy to shoot a video and promote yourself, but God go help us.

Why did you singed into the record label?
Afrikanbazemedia singned me ending this year December 2019
What are your plans for the rest of the year?

Who are your role models in the music industry?
I only look up to God because me sef as I dey, I dey vex gan. I am dropping a new song very soon titled Olosho kekeke prod by Dj yk beat. That is where I am pouring out my mind. Though there are lots of songs, we have to take a step at a time. I believe in myself and my team also. It’s a team work now and we don’t have beef for anybody.
How do you cope with your female fans?
I love them; we dey together and even when I am with my girlfriend, I still show them much love.
And she doesn’t get jealous?
No, she understands.
What about the male fans?
Well, I treat them well. At times, I show love by giving out a little from my pocket. And if I don’t have money on me, I just scope them- we call that street orientation.
Who is your female crush in the industry?
(Laughs) Nobody; I don’t have any. I am from the streets; so, I don’t have time for that.
