Rapper Reminisce has revealed he would no longer use certain words in his works because of his daughters.
During an Instagram Live chat with media personality Douglas Jekan on Saturday, the 39-year-old made it known that it would not have been a problem in the past but now he would be writing songs with his daughters in mind.
“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.
“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,” he said.
The Ogun State-born rapper also advised up-and-coming artistes to remain humble, citing another artiste Fireboy whom he had recently worked with.
“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 superstar. Having the right attitude is one of them. Fireboy, who I recently worked with has the right attitude,” he stated.
Reminisce raps mostly in Yoruba and a bit of English, using street slangs in his songs.
