Fast rising singer and G-Worldwide signee, Umoren Akanimoh Felix aka Sugarboy says that before he releases any song, he puts in a lot of hard work to ensure he comes out with the best.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop about the inspiration behind his music, he said, “I am basically inspired by my environment. I get ideas from the things that happen around me and even from people. Inspiration could come in whatever form, even in the unlikeliest of places. However, the most important thing is that my music is a product of hard work. A lot of work goes into polishing a song and making it presentable from the point of getting of getting the idea to releasing it to the public. Most times, it is a collaborative effort between me and my team as I am always open to suggestions.”
The singer also dismissed insinuations that he is under pressure to do better than his label mate, Kiss Daniel. “It is not a competition, rather we are brothers. I was featured on his albums, and he is also going to be on two songs in my forthcoming album as well so there is no pressure from anywhere. All I’m concerned about is making good music and I can assure my fans that I would never disappoint them,” he said.
Shedding more light on his debut album, Believe, which is billed for release soon, Sugarboy said, “There are 22 songs on the album but I had to record about 40 tracks in all before selecting the ones that would eventually go on the album and I can tell you it was quite tough. Kiss Daniel had the best album of 2016 and I will be having the best album of 2017. Great things start from small beginnings and I believe I’m destined for the top of the industry.”
Meanwhile, Sugarboy currently has songs such as Hola Hola, Double, Legalise, Dada Omo, among others which are doing well at the moment.
