VJ Adams may be more famous for being a Soundcity VJ than a musician but the rapper, singer and actor, has debunked claims that he is an “occasional musician”.
In a chat with Vanguard’s Showtime, VJ Adams clarifies his musical career for fans who claim he has not made enough songs to qualify as an artiste.
VJ Adams said, “Wow! Such a shot at me. I’m more of a project guy, I like body of works; I’m not into the single business even though that’s where the world is right now. So, I’d rather go back, record for a couple of months, put a body of work together and put it out. Next body of work is scheduled to be out in July. The last one did pretty well, so I’m grateful”
He added, “I’m a perfect blend of both a singer and a rapper. Even though I think my rap competence is a lot more. I am into words, painting pictures with words, though I don’t have Wande Coal’s kind of voice, but auto tune can help us with that singing part. I can hold my own.”
VJ Adams also spoke on the most challenging aspects of his music career so far. “The most challenging part of my music career is the transition from making music without putting my vocals on it, then to putting my vocals on it. Of course, I was worried of how people will receive it. Even though for most part of being in the studio, I get excited but knowing fully well that i made success from TV first before my music. Usually, Nigerians would be like ‘Stay and do one thing’, but of course, I’m not about that lifestyle. That transition from just putting out music and then putting my vocals on it was really a bit challenging”
