“I’ve been trying to get new music out, new sound. Out here (in the UK), there are a lot of beautiful producers but they are lowkey.”
“It’s more like me trying to change my sound from what I’m used to. Its a little bit of Afroswing and Afrobeats.
“The new sound is taking me to another level where I am dropping another EP for next year. It’s good music. It’s different from what they know me for.”
On Burna Boy, Coal described the Afro-fusion singer as “my blood forever”, adding that he is “probably the best”.
His words: “I love him. His sounds always make me feel like ‘yo, why didn’t I do that‘. When me and Burna work together, we are in a different world. He’s a fusion of everything.”
Talking about his growth in the music industry, Ojosipe said:
“The journey for me started since 2005. I was a backup singer at that time. I was a dancer before I became a backup singer and then I became a backup singer for D’banj before I became an artiste.
“I did that for three years before I became an artiste. I was just a kid; 21.
“I’m glad that after a couple of years, It has paid off. Now I can still be relevant and keep going. I never forget where I come from, so it keeps me going.”
