Nigerian rapper, Reminisce has made it clear that he is not under any pressure whatsoever to win a Grammy Award.
The rapper said this when he appeared on a national TV to talk about his music career.
He also spoke about the holdup in the release of his album, Alaye Toh Se Gogo, his trip on King of Boys and his future as an actor.
Giving him a tip to speak his mind, the presenter said, “It puts a lot of pressure on people like you…” while Reminisce replied, “Errrrm. Me, personally, no, it doesn’t. I just try to do what I should do and what I can do. At every point in Nigerian music history, there are people who will be pioneers. Say for the modern rap game, you have Ruggedman, Modenine and co as pioneers.
“For our side of the map, Lord of Ajasa, Olamide, myself. For the popstars, you have Wiz, David. For the new school, you would have someone like Ckay. I can’t be under pressure, I can only do what I can do and hope for the best.”
In career pursuit, two of his five albums have charted high on American Apex charts, Billboard. Time Magazine also named him as one of just 10 rappers that anybody should dream to meeting across the world.
