“Let new people win awards,”
“As for the Headies.
I stopped entering for it because I don’t want to compete with rappers (I can easily beat them on a one on one but that was Unilag).
I’m grown now. Awards actually don’t mean anything to me anymore.
The rapper went on to speak about how he does not want to nurture the idea of outdoing fellow rapper, ModeNine.
“I intentionally removed myself from the idea that I have to outdo mode9.
It’s not necessary. Ask him about me in the studio and he will tell you.
I don’t care about clout…
I just want to make music.
Fuck money too. That shit comes and goes anyway.”
“Make Hennessy tell una how much my deal is worth as a rapper?
Lol. But that’s not me.
I can brag but it only brings S more fake people around you anyways.
Stay humble and live easy. Accolades are just accolades.
Peace to everybody who deserves peace.”
