Hi Ojelade, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been fine thank you.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Yellowlight”?
Yellow Light is a conscious love song written from the point of view of a guy who is stuck in the friendzone and is trying to get out of that zone, that is why I used the symbolism of the traffic light as the title of the song and it was produced by Jhazzy. Yellow Light has received a lot of attention and love from the general public and even the media houses and I want to use this medium to say a huge thanks to everyone who has been supportive of this art.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
The song was inspired by my need to be heard and to make a statement in the music industry without using vulgar words. I was actually angry when I wrote the song because someone got me angry.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
I dropped a studio session video alongside the audio it was shot by Amazingklef but the main visuals is already in the works and it will soon be out
How was the recording and writing process?
It was swift, the recording was done in just a day as well. It was during the mandatory lockdown during the pandemic so I had to walk two hours to and fro to record the song lol. In all it was beautiful cos it was worth it in the end.
What role does Lagos play in your music?
Lagos is the Centre Of Excellence and to a large extent whatever Lagos accepts becomes accepted in a large part of the country, Lagos is the centre of entertainment in the entire country and also a strong hold even in the African scene.
How has Tuface and Ed Sheeran influenced your writing?
I believe in making songs that will stand the test of time,songs that even the next generation will be able to relate with and that’s what ive learnt from @face and Ed Sheeran’s writing. Meaningful and relatable lyrics not jumping on any trend because once the trend is over that song becomes unrelatable.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
I make new materials almost every week, the next track has already been mixed and mastered.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
My record label decides that.
Any plans to hit the road?
Oh yes, once the pandemic is fully over, some for official business and also I have some places I want to visit with my equipments to just feel refreshed and connect with nature and make music.
What else is happening next in LBee’ world?
My music is all I’m concentrating on for now, Yellow Light has a lot of buzz around it and I want to exploit that and make my mark on the Nigerian and African music scene, one thing I’m sure about is setting up my own NGO to give back to the society, so help me God.
