In an interview with Channels Television’s Entertainment News, Gaise shared some of his thoughts on the music scene in the country, laying out his plan to bring options to Nigeria’s youth.
“I feel that young people, children and those who are at the mercy of the music that is available deserve an alternative,” he said.
According to him, “there is too much of a kind of music right now and I’m not talking of style. I’m talking of content.
“It (music available) is pretty much about body parts and affluence – flexing and clubbing. I feel that there should be more mentally stimulating music – music that you hear and it makes you think.”
The rapper whose song ‘Little Drops’ gained impressive airplay told EN his music addresses issues and everyday living.
“Like I did with little drops and I was talking about Nigerians and the fact that with our actions, words and the things that we do, we actually influence the state of the nation.
I am “considerably liberal. So I’m open to ideas. I’m open to learning…. so I expose my mind to those who have gone before (me)”
He adds that he will listen to rich music, even those that do not originate in Church
“I want to do the Ebenezer Obey type of content with the Fela type fearlessness”.
