How did you come about the name, FiveMics?
FiveMics: It’s a title. For hotels it’s 5star, for the army is 5star. So for Hip-Hop its 5mics… Meaning Classic and the highest rank! Asides that fact, my niggas gave me the name after winning a Freestyle competition called 5Mics back then.”5mics” is also earned by known rap acts in the likes of Nas, Jay-Z etc. and is mostly identified with Hip-Hop acts and Source magazine.

Wana: Hmmm. A title most fitting.
Where did you grow up?
FiveMics: I grew up in Lagos and later moved to Abuja around 2001.

Wana: What was your favorite childhood meal?
FiveMics: Childhood was Fried rice, Salad and Chicken…. Adulthood bayi, it became Egusi and Poundy!!!!

Wana: Ah… From Fried Rice to Pounded Yam? How nah? How does someone transform from Ajebutter to Ajepako?
FiveMics: LOOOOOL! Well since I gained Independence, omo na street thingz o! *in Meek Mill’s voice* Only hope I had was selling dope! For studio session! 😐
LOOOL… No mind me… Just love it ’cause my Mom makes the best Egusi soup ever! And I grew up hearing Nigerian meals are healthy and manly, so that has become my favorite.

Wana: Hahahahaha… When did you officially enter the rap game?
FiveMics: Err… Around 2006/07… That’s when I dropped my first single with Mode9… Was really young then and that’s what even caught people’s attention.

Wana: If you weren’t a rapper, what would you be?
FiveMics: Soccer player or a movie star!! Or my father’s dream: a white collar somewhere with Barclays or CBN LOOOL.

Wana: Hahahahahaha. You sabi play ball so?
FiveMics: Huh? I swear man! I think I play more than I rap sef.

Wana: Loooooool. What position do you play?
FiveMics: Centre Forward (9), Attacking Forward (8), Right Winger (7)… M.I can testify to this we play almost every morning before work. :D… I was quite serious with soccer when I was in Abuja.

Wana: What’s your opinion on Love? Do you believe in it or do you think is just an excuse people use to get what they want from people?
FiveMics: Love is just as real as hate… We experience it everyday one more than the other most times… But let’s just say I love everyone around me! Even my haters πŸ™‚

Wana: Hmmm. Wise words… Are you in a relationship?
FiveMics: Well naa…

Wana: Hahahaha. Okay, imagine you tried calling your number from your girl’s phone and found out she stored your contact as “Mugu 4”. What would you do?
