Nigerian artiste Djinee, who has been missing from the entertainment space for awhile, says he left the music industry to find his sound.
The ‘Ego’, ‘I No Dey Shame’ and ‘Overkilling’ singer admitted on Goldmyne TV that he was not comfortable with the sound he was making at a time.
“I wasn’t exactly comfortable with the sound I was making at a time. At times, success comes with its curses,” he said.
Djinee also said his song ‘Overkilling’ was the stumbling block.
His words: “I wasn’t exactly comfortable with the sound I was making at a time. At times, success comes with its curses. ‘Overkilling’ was a big deviation from my original sounds like ‘Ego,’ ‘I No Dey Shame’ and ‘Lade.’ I went on a different angle with ‘OverKilling’ and it made people expect certain music that I was not comfortable doing. So, I needed to find myself and also I needed to do a bit of travelling within and outside Nigeria.”
He, however, claimed he did not regret doing the song, comparing it to the situation of oil discovery in Nigeria.
“The song won me a different audience. Up till now, I am in a very funny situation. I have two different kinds of fans – the ones who believe my music ended when I did ‘Over Killing’ and the ones who believe my music started with ‘Over Killing’ I tried to satisfy ‘Over Killing’ lovers, which made me stop telling stories with my songs. And I like telling stories,” he added.
