Obesere confesses: I’m doing hip-hop to protect my future



For those wondering why lewd Fuji singer, Obesere, is now
doing hip-hop music, they need not wonder anymore.
The ‘Asakasa’ master has given his reasons.
Speaking exclusively with Showtime on his foray into hip-hop
music, he said, “I’m doing hip-hop to prove to the world that
I’m a professional in what I’m doing. It doesn’t mean that
because I’m a Fuji artiste, I cannot sing anything else.

Whatever music turns itself to, I’m ready to do it. A Yoruba
proverb says that you should face the same direction that the
rest of the world is facing, so you won’t be displaced by time.
I don’t want to give any chance to anybody to push me aside
to irrelevance because I want to continue being relevant. The
good thing is that people have accepted my work. They
appreciate me because they’ve known me already. It is an
opportunity to prove that I deserve my title as ‘Paramount
king of music."
On why he established his record label, he said, “I established
Sidophobia Entertainment to promote upcoming artistes, and
to promote myself, and work on my future. I may say I want
to retire, and its my label I’ll retire on. I have a lot of artistes
like M4 and Fayrous under my label. Many artistes come to
me, but I have to select the ones that are really talented. All
my artistes are capable as far as music is concerned.”
Obesere also allayed fears that Fuji music is facing imminent
extinction. He asserted, “Fuji music can never die. It is
traditional, but hip-hop is a borrowed culture. As a matter of
fact, most hip-hop songs have a bit of Fuji in them.”
The ebony-skinned artiste also revealed that he’ll soon be
shooting a video for the song he recorded with Timaya.
