As the release of his maiden album is drawing near, rapper Ikechukwu Okoro [aka Money Making] is battling to make people believe he is doing the right thing by dumping other musical projects he was supposed to be embarking on for the release of the album titled ‘Good to Go’.
According to Money Making, releasing the album was the right thing to do because he cannot proceed to the next level of his career if the songs in the album are not pushed to the market now that he can.
“People say I should have diverted my funds into a video or embark on more promotions for my songs, but I smile and tell them that I have done those things while the promotion side is still on course.
“I can’t say they are wrong to say that, the truth is that only people who love you will take time to advice you on what to do for your career to boost it and I appreciate their concerns.
“Already there are two videos off the album and I with my management are still planning on getting more out there. The videos are playing anywhere they can, especially that of ‘Good to Go’ and the response has been massive. The next thing for me is to move to the next level of my career by getting the songs I have now, to the people after which the next level of my career can unfold” He explained.
He however accepted the fact that so many people have failed taking the same step he is about taking, adding that he does not see any reason to fail because he has not started like every other and will not end like them.
“One cannot, write exams like JAMB when he is still in junior secondary school. We make sacrifices for us to be elevated and I want to drop these songs as a peace offering to the public who have made me who I am today.
“I believe in God and He has never let me down in anything I commit into his hands, so failure is far from what I am seeing in this project. We postponed it because of some professional reason and now that everything has been sorted out. So far everything is moving according to plans, which means forward ever and backward never.” He added.
With everything going according to plans, the album presentation concert will take place on Sunday March 8, 2014 at May Fair Hotels and Conference Centre Egbu Road Owerri, Imo State by 3:00PM.
