DICEKID SPEAKS ON EARLY LIFE,MAKING MUSIC,INCOMING PROJECT,COLLABS,GROWTH AND LIFESTYLE (9yrs of Artistry)
STARTING MUSIC AT AN EARLY AGE,CONSISTENCY AND GROWTH!
Well for me it is a Dream coming to reality because I’ve always wished for days like this,I’ve been writing enough Good music since i was 12 the problem i had was guidance even though i had role models.
Being the youngest soul Making music in my locality was something I had to fight because it came with alot of mockery,Rejections even as they knew i was good at it.my family didn’t buy the idea fully but they couldn’t stop me because i keep proving myself.my first plays and downloads came from them and some of my classmates.i can remember clearly the tons of songs i wrote before getting to record one(2013)the late nights out for events and the number of times i slept in the studio,well i can say at the long run i made it clear to my family and all those who didn’t believed in me when i left for the city because I didn’t have anyone i just came,did my thing and made my way in the industry back home..
It’s a thing of gratitude that the world finally sees and appreciate my crafts.
that alone is Growth for me..
HOW MANY SONGS BEFORE THE HIT?
Well I haven’t gotten the HIT per say but Since i started making music officially,i released a couple of songs which I performed whenever i attend events or shows.
I released up to 10 songs from 2015-2018 with little or no promotions because I wasn’t strong enough. at a time i had to pause because i was having enough songs with just little exposure and I didn’t want to continue putting out records without it meeting the right audience.my songs then didn’t get up to 100 downloads and that wasn’t enough for the kind of music i made.i think that is why i had to re-upload a compilation of all my old songs which are the featured tracks in G.O.D vol1 which is now streaming upto 50,000 streams organically on the digitals..by the way i got a couple good songs out there also so I’ll say those first ones scratched the surface for me..
The MAKING AND SUCCESS of ‘CUPID EP’
It feels so great, man. Especially cos i knew we spent little time making the project..it was a one day decision because i had no intentions for an EP,made the records from scratch in just a week time mhen too crazy..It’s just amazing to see that people appreciate the music. Not just Nigeria because my geographical stats is 70% international and that’s why I make music. I’m just trying to connect to the outer space at an early age and just spread good vibe.I just play my own role and do my own thing man the records speak for themselves.besides i made that project during my hardest times so I’ll say its a blessing to see how the numbers are growing and where it is heading naturally so yeah,I Bless God man.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GROWING AS AN ARTISTE
As artistes, I believe we all want to grow. So, whenever I make an album or I make a project, I just try to make sure that the growth is way very evident. Not just in the song but also my artworks,videos and promotions. It is very, very important for me so i have to sit and structure all of that and make sure that the music is very solid. So,definitely I’ll say growing as an artiste has to be very intentional.
COLLABORATING AND WORKING WITH OTHERS
You know, first of all, when two artistes go into the room to make music, especially two good artistes, you are definitely going to create magic. I’m sincerely not a fan of just getting whosoever to jump on my track for any reason unless it’s genuine that’s why i do less for now even though The features i got in studio is sure enough to put out an album on its own and it consists of the bests,i mean people who don’t just sing for money and all that but for the passion and joy that comes with it.well putting out such records with little exposure for now will cost me alot that’s why i tend to save em up for now.i might put out a couple more this year but till i know I’m fit enough to put out those amazing records,for now I’ll just do my best and make good music.its never too late to put out Good music..Also it is very important for me to just make music regardless of where the sound is coming from or whoever I’m bringing to the table.
WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO MOSTLY?
I listen to everything good that comes out, music is life so I stay, sleep, eat music, that’s in anything I do it just depends on my mood and the type of songs i want to listen at the moment..And I listen to a lot of old music too,I love all good records..
FASHION AND LIFESTYLE
Haha i do clothes more than i eat,got two great clotheslines doing pretty fine so yea I don’t joke with fashion because it’s already a part of me.i come from a place where boys starve for days just so they can afford a pair of Nikes even though that’s crayzy but yeah I can’t slag.i am working on building not just the biggest fashion house back home but also an empire for people who admire and love fashion..my late dad was a dripper so you don’t expect less from the son you know.
RELATIONSHIP WITH PEOPLE
First of all,i hang around positive and older companies.Because I have enough older friends, I’m always hanging out with people a lot older than I am So I thought, “Oh, maybe that was the reason why,” i do and learned more at my age.. as you tend to grow older,you get to know yourself better as a human being and you grow spiritually as well, you tend to understand the principles and purpose of life. Like you’re here for a course.You’re here for a reason. I’m here to cater for myself and loved ones so in case anyone crosses my path they would be good. And it is also deeper,Like when you know the essence of who you care about,the people around you and how far they can go to see you succeed…
ANY NEW MUSIC,ALBUM OR AN EP?
Well we’ve got two amazing and beautiful songs out there already.starting off this year i had plans of putting out as much record until i moved out,reincarnated and met one or two people.i have a song I’m working on produced by Bobberry the song has been with STG for some time now so till he drops the final record,it’s No music for now.And Ye,I’m working on my first official EP(SonOfSounds) which is a world standard. I’m working with the bests i mean the best to ever do this on this project including features from top celebrities I can’t mention for now so yeah,my EP will be worth the wait and it’s coming Real Soon..right now it’s like, I’m making some of the purest, realist music I’ve ever made in life.
WINNING AWARDS AND SETTING STANDARDS
Well in as much as I’ve always loved and prayed for my art to be appreciated worldwide,awards don’t define my win because i know how i started and compared to now,its a very huge different stage mhen and no plaque or trophy can beat that inner feeling.i don’t lose even when i do its a win for me because i tend to do better when i encounter lost so yea not everybody understands this that’s why i believe I’m one of the bests to ever do this here..well we’ve got couple of awards back home and still got hundreds to come Incase the world needs it..
Yeah, I don’t even stress about the craft right now because I’ll say i have done everything i can so right now I don’t even have to think too deep because the music comes from within. I’ll just go with the flow and see what God has in store for me.its very much easier when you don’t expect much you just make the music and see what level unfolds,I’ve never thought I’ll be at this level since start even though it isn’t easy,I Thankgod for growth and the people around me.we just starting and all i can say is right now,I’m making some amazing music.
