Lagbaja’s most revealing interview; discloses why he broke up with Ego

Few months after a picture  which claimed to be the facial identity of Bisade Ologunde popularly known as Lagbaja circulated online, the man behind the mask has decided to break his silence over the said picture.
According to Lagbaja, “people are very funny, this same picture has been put on internet
before now with a similar story. They should know that Lagbaja is much
older than the person there and I don’t have bald-head, may be by the
time I have bald-head, he will look much like me…people will have the opportunity to see my face when I’m gone” 
“Lagbaja is a very simple person, he said, adding “I don’t want to live a
life of a celebrity. There are certain things I can do today, which
most you cannot do. I can walk from my house in Omale Estate down to my
Wonderlan  in Opebi, I’m talking about three kilometers here but most of
you cannot do it. Not because  you don’t have the energy but you simply
cannot do it. What I gain by not talking about my personal life is
freedom.”

 On  Ego Ogbaro’s exit, Lagbaja said, “ Naturally, every person will
aspire to grow; you cannot hold unto an employer all your life. If you
have a drive in the artistic world, you want to also be an employer, you
want to explore your own art. So, it was a natural progression. Ego had
to leave. Don’t forget that she was with us for more than 10 years. So,
what else do you expect? There was no fight. In fact, I had been
encouraging her to do her own songs long before her exit.  If she had
stayed, I would have been happy but when she was going I was happy too.”
“I said, ‘okay, but you have to wait till the end of the year so we
can have a party for you’. And so, we celebrated her at our last show
before she left. It’s a natural growth; you can’t remain in one place
forever. And mind you, when  you leave, you are actually creating a
space for somebody else  to come in because my concept is my concept.”
“Ego left at the right time that is how it should be. If the
opportunity comes, we would meet somewhere else. Few  weeks ago, I saw
Ego at an event  and I invited her on stage to perform alongside my
band. Today, she has started her own career. The girls with me today
will someday start their own career too,” Lagbaja said.
