WHEN DID YOU START MUSIC OFFICIALLY AND WHAT INSPIRED YOU?
I first featured in Star Quest in 2007. Went back to school and and came back officially in June 2015. I have been singing since I was 7 years old. My brother inspired me as I saw him pursue he’s dream and he told me I can make it.
ARE YOU SIGNED TO ANY RECORD LABEL AT THE MOMENT?
I am not under a Record Label right now, but I am managed by 23/25 Entertainment.
THE SONG “BAMIDELE” SEEMS TO BE YOUR BIGGEST SONG EVER, WHAT BROUGHT IT UP?
Well, I was just vibing in the studio with my producer Teemode and the idea just kinda flowed. I wanted a different scenario instead of the guy toasting a girl, why not the girl doing it? It was fun making that track.
DO YOU HAVE SONGS YOU’VE RELEASED BEFORE OR AFTER “BAMIDELE”?
I have many other songs recorded, but I have only released Bamidele. That’s my first official single.
THE SONG HAS QUITE SOME RADIO POPULARITY AND LESS SOCIAL MEDIA POPULARITY WHY?
We all have different strategies to explore. We are available on social media. We also need to promote it on Radio and TV so, the traction. We get is what we follow up more. I want to use this medium to thank all the Stations playing Bamidele.thabjs for supporting my dream.
THE SONG IS NOT MUCH OF A HIT SONG EVEN THOUGH IT IS A GREAT SONG, DID YOU NOT PROMOTE IT WELL?
I am happy you said it’s a great song, if you do music, you will know it’s not easy at all and if you have a great song, it opens you up for a hit song. You’re looking for a hit abi, don’t worry I am bringing a train to jam you soon. *laughs*
ANY PLANS ON REMIXING THE SONG WITH AN A-LIST ARTIST?
We are currently in talks with some artistes, we need to get it right and not just put any artiste for the sake of it. You might get a Bamidele remix soon.
THE SONG’S VIDEO WAS RELEASED RECENTLY, HOW EASY WAS THAT?
I had fun shooting the video because it was shot in my city, Osogbo. The logistics wasn’t exactly easy Cus it wasn’t in Lagos, but I had the best crew working on the video. Deji Kale shot it, and he was amazing.

My favourite was the Glo Lafta Fest in Ikeja. The biggest was the Star Trek in Lagos. I also performed at the One Lagos Fiesta. We don try.
ANY AWARD NOMINATIONS?
Yes. I just won the Best Song Recording at the Top Naija Music Awards. That’s the first and hopefully more will as soon as possible.
