Wow! It’s the 7th week already? Time really does fly!
Happy Thursday folks! On today’s episode, I have with me, one of the catalysts who brought rap music to life in Nigeria.
Ladies & Gentlemen, Sinzu!
Wana: Good morning Sinzu! How’s it going?
Sinzu: It’s going good!
Wana: Nice… What’s your full name?
Sinzu: Babalola Falemi.
Wana: What’s your date of birth?
Sinzu: 13th of July, 1984.
Wana: What state are you from?
Sinzu: I’m from two states… Osun & Edo 😀
Wana: LOOL.. Growing up, what was the first thing you did for money?
Sinzu: Hustle, man. Hustle.
Wana: Badt guy… Why music, and why rap?
Sinzu: I’ve always been in love with music, and my first love music-wise was Rap music. Overtime, that has changed though. I’m more musically-inclined and my sound is evolving, not just in rap but in other genres too. Music is a universal language, and I’m becoming very fluent at it.
Wana: Deep words… What’s the best rap album you’ve ever heard by a Nigerian?
Sinzu: Is it out? I haven’t heard it yet oh.
Wana: In your opinion, who’s the best rapper in Nigeria?
Sinzu: He isn’t in the industry yet. He’s probably in some shelter looking for food to eat.
Wana: LOOL… What’s your current relationship status?
Sinzu: Sinzu is single like the first song off an album 😀
Wana: Hahaha… If you could have a one-night stand with a female Nigerian celebrity, who would it be?
Sinzu: Ah! *scratches head* None! The ladies in the industry are like my sisters… I don’t look at them like that.
Wana: LOOL! See friendzoning! What’s your most embarrassing moment ever?
Sinzu: Uhm… That would be at the Calabar Carnival some years back, where I was introduced as the “Yebariba guy”. I used to get that a lot and it’s always embarrassing.
Wana: Hahaha… Yebariba guy, have you ever cried during a movie? Which?
Sinzu: Hahaha… Nah, I’ve never cried during a movie.
Wana: What’s the worst nickname you’ve ever been given?
Sinzu: Lolly. My mom calls me that as a short form for Babalola. It’s not the worst, but it it’s pretty damn fucked up.
Wana: Looool! What is Sinzu addicted to?
Sinzu: Good music. Tattoos. Fun. Getting ahead in life.
Wana: Have you ever wished that you weren’t a celebrity?
Sinzu: I wish I wasn’t a celebrity at times when I want my privacy but can’t get it, just because people know who I am. I’m handling it quite well recently though.
Wana: Nice… Let’s wrap this up… I’ll give you some options and choose one, aii?
Wana: Moin-Moin or Dodo?
Sinzu: LOL! Dodo!
Wana: Music-wise, Tiwa Savage or Omawumi?
Sinzu: Tiwa Savage.
Wana: And that’s a wrap. Thanks for your time, Sauce Kid!
Sinzu: Anytime, homie.
Looooool! Lolly is a cool name though… Nigerian rappers are too humble, by the way… They never say they’re the best when you ask them if they are….
Catch you next week folks!
