Nigeria Rapper, Remilekun Safari, also known as Reminisce, has advised musicians to evolve in order for them not be left out.
Reminisce, who just recently released a new extended play album, vibes and insha Allah’, revealed that there are some things he could no longer say in his songs because of his daughters. Reminisce made this during a live chat on Instagram with media personality, Douglas Jekan.
During the interview, the rapper said, “I don’t want to think of what I did in the past, I am bothered about what I am doing right now. Even though I appreciate what I have put in the past. The music industry is large. Collaborations are very important. Rap is now a basic skill; everybody can rap.
“I always tell myself that the worst that can happen is failure. (And if that happens), I can try again. Introduce yourself to a new audience everyday. I didn’t know the movie audience was large until I starred in ‘King of Boy’s. I am enjoying the fame. I didn’t know the market was this huge. I just stuck to rap music.
“One needs to evolve; if not one would be left behind. There are things in my old songs that I cannot say anymore. Because I have three daughters, it’s not cool to say those things any more. One needs to grow and evolve. When one doesn’t grow with one’s fans, they would leave one behind.”
Reminisce also urged fellow artistes to stay humble. He said “I have met a lot of up-and- coming artistes, who have talents and looks but their attitudes are not right. We mentioned earlier that talent is just 10 per cent of what one needs these days. One needs other components to become a super star. Having the right attitude is one of them. Fireboy who I recently worked with has the right attitude,”
