Chike, a soulful Nigerian musician, speaks about staying true to his style of music. He discloses he is not looking at changing his style of music because it is working for him.
In a recent conversation with OAP Ehiz DadaBoy on Apple Music 1, Chike said his songs might not be everywhere on the streets, but as long as his genuine fans troop out in a thousand to support him, it would mean a lot to him.
In his words;
“The best you can be is you. There’s gonna be a couple of tweaks here and there, and that happened with my new album because there were a few things I learned, and other parts of me and my experiences I felt more comfortable talking about. I can tell you yes, I can see what’s going on [in more popular Nigerian music scenes], but the truth is if something’s working, why change it? I know what I did the first time, and it worked for me so why not try for the second time?”
Continuing, he said, “When there’s an abrupt change, also, you lose your core base. Now you might not see our music on all the streets and all the corners, but I can decide in Lagos, Nigeria to do a show and pack it with 800-1000 people, depending on how hard I go. This is 800-1000 people that are willing to pay to come see me, and that means a lot.”
On Thursday, August 25, 2022, the sonorous vocalist Chike delivered his second official studio album, ‘The Brother’s Keeper,’
The new body of work, ‘The Brother’s Keeper’ by the talented singer, comprises 16 tracks with two guest artistes—veteran musician Flavour and Azana.
