Nigerian Rapper Ice Prince
was a guest at The Breakfast Club 105.1 Fm in New York where he spoke about
Nigerian music, Boko Haram and how the incoming government will make things
happen.
Why is American music more
embraced in Nigeria, and Nigerian music is not well embraced in America as much….
“I guess it is just what it is. America is
world power right. The President of America is like the President of the World,
the most popular chef in America, will probably be the most popular chef in the
world. But I feel like, America is still starting to open to other genres of
music, I see reggae music is popping out here, and that’s dope. I see some of
the UK artistes are popping here too, and that’s dope. I think Africans need to
get that too.”

Do you feel pressurized at
some point to leave Nigeria to become successful?….
“No. I have never had to leave. I still live
in Nigeria. I just travel a lot, I’m just out there a lot because Nigerian
music has gotten to a point where it is really, really blowing now. It is a
huge market. Artistes are starting to make a lot of money. From the business,
there’s a lot more bigger shows. There’s corporate getting involved,
international companies getting involved, so stuff like that. So the market is
getting bigger everyday.”
About Boko Haram….

 “Unfortunately. It is a terrorist group. They
were disturbing peace. But it is a little bit calm now. Like Nigeria just got a
new President, we just elected a new president. Congratulations to my country.
my new President. General Muhammadu Buhari. He used to be a general. Anyway he
is still a general. Once a general, always a general. He is the new President.
We just pray that that stuff goes away completely.”
His perception of Africa….

“Unfortunately (When
Charlamagne Tha God says over the years the pictures of Africa they’ve shown us
is of kids with flies flying on their faces). Africa is beautiful, really,
really beautiful. If you haven’t been there, you can only be as ignorant as
anyone who has not been there. But like you said, South Africa is crazily nice.
That’s one of my favourite places in the world after Nigeria. And Nigeria is
beautiful. It is hot all year, it does not get too cold like that, we love it.”
