General Sleezy, is one the fast rising stars in Imo State, during De Dukes Show party, CHINEDU HARDY NWADIKEcaught up with this artiste who almost stole the show that night at the Valentino Night Club of Rapour Hotels Owerri. In this brief interview, he explains himself, his goals in life as well as other things that affects him and his music.
Anyaoha George Emeka, from Ihime Mbano LGA of Imo State. Graduate of Fine and Applied Arts, Imo State University Owerri.
Table Tennis, and if you expect serious sports like football, forget it. I don’t play and I don’t support any club. I’m a sculptor, a hair stylist and this I learnt from my lovely mum.
I do afro hip-hop, rap and reggae. And what I tell you that I do, I’m really good at it.
I recorded the first time in 2005, and since them, I’ve been doing my thing, trying to perfect my game.
Right now, I don’t have any album out there, and like I said, I’m still raising my game but I’m there now, with a hit single out there titled ‘wicked boises’. Radio stations have got it and it’s online for anyone to download.
This is the label I’m currently working with. We have Kally on the beats and I believe that WBI has what it takes to make things happen for me here in O’town and beyond.
I have none, and that’s true. I live a very humble life, always doing my best to stay a way from trouble. My mother taught me that, and going to live with it for the rest of my life, that Eph 26:6 for you.
I’ve always dreamt of nothing but to make it big in life. I want to be among the best in what I do. I want to own my own studio, do interior decoration, as well as my art works, these are a few of my favorite things.
Best moment in music
Any time I’m on the studio in front of the microphone. I feel so free and the only thing I remember is music.
Worst Moment in music
It was one time here in Owerri, I heped in the street awareness of a show, at when the main show started, I wasn’t even let into the stadium, I had to transport myself back to the house in shame.
I see it as one of the best in the country, but there is definitely no way we can do it all alone. The artistes are doing their part, we need the general public to respond, good promoters to take over things. No one is really going to lose, I only see a gain-gain situation, because the public will get good music, while the promoters and the artistes will go home with good packages as well. The circle is still broken and we need people to fill in these gaps.
I didn’t get a shot, not that I’m not good, but there is definitely no way I can pay anyone to perform on his stage. They way they are going about it is not really the right way. We see these things in other states, the highest is an open audition and at the end artistes get paid well, but here, I don’t really understand.
