Xtrmbasepro: Welcome to another exciting segment of Artiste and the art. Today,we have a young and passionate artiste.
I’ll let her introduce herself.
Hello beautiful, can we meet you?
Xtrmbasepro: Great. Welcome on board Oye.
So guys,I present you Oye. I’m sure we’ll learn so much today. Right Oye?
Xtrmbasepro: Alright. Let’s get on with this.
Xtrmbasepro: OYE, how have you been? How’s music?
Oye: I’ve been alright, thank you. Music has been interesting.
Xtrmbasepro: For how long have you been into music?
Oye: I started at the age of 6, but officially my music ministry started 2years ago.
Xtrmbasepro: So far,how has it been?
How have you been able to overcome the challenges the industry brings?
Oyesade: Oh Jesus! It has not been easy I tell you.
Finance at times could be the problem.
At times stage fright; you know I was scared at first if people would accept my music,at times people criticize.
One thing that kept me moving is that I knew not everyone would love my music,I can’t satisfy everyone.
Xtrmbasepro: Very true, You are not sent to everyone naa. Every artiste has his or her own crowd. So its good you were able to know that in time.
Xtrmbasepro: So about the stage fright thing; do you still have it?
Oye: Ahahah…Not really!
But there are places I go, the crowd would make my heart beat,so I just ask Jesus to take the lead and He takes away my fear.
Xtrmbasepro: So right now,if you are not making music,what do you do?
Oye: Makeup artistry.
Xtrmbasepro: That’s great. Kudos to you Oye.
Oye: Thank you
Xtrmbasepro: So how do you draw your inspiration?
Oye: God is number 1.
At times in the place of prayer and worship,it could be when I am sleeping.
In fact the happenings around me are also a source of inspiration.
Xtrmbasepro: Awesome. So how many songs have you got so far?
Oye: I have an album of 8tracks titled HONOUR released (5th feb.2017) and I have two other singles
And two features
Xtrmbasepro: Oh that’s great. Well done Oye. And thanks for your responses so far.
Xtrmbasepro: So who would you say are your musical influences?
Oye: Tasha Cobbs And ASA.
Xtrmbasepro: So what genre of music would you consider your work to be?
Oye: Soft rock and afro beat,and trap.
Xtrmbasepro: So OYE,how can you describe the music making process?
Oye: Hmm. Anytime I get new inspiration…at times I record with my phone or I write it down as soon a possible.
I sit down to do proper arrangement and rehearse. After that, I take it to the studio,we make the beat and record the song!
After recording I call my graphics designer so anticipation can begin then I pay bloggers who would help me promote and put on their blogs.
Xtrmbasepro: Oh great!
Hope you’ll call us when you are about to drop the next one 😄
Oye: By God’s grace.
Xtrmbasepro: And talking about the next one;when should we be expecting a release
Oye: Probably before the end of the year…already working on something new.
We’ll definitely wait on this one…
Xtrmbasepro: So let’s for a minute talk about the song “healing power”.
That song to me sounds like a prayer… And trust me,it is timely… How did it come about?
Oye: Hmm..why is it that anytime am having an interview I’ll be asked to talk about healing power.
Healing power is a song of prayer and it defines what my purpose is all about
God told me when I was 15 that he is setting me as a light to bring back salvation to the ends of the earth and to set free those in darkness,captivity,to heal the sick and give hope to the hopeless
That song explains it all.
Xtrmbasepro: It sure did. For me,that song is fire! Great work Oye
Oye: All glory to God.
Xtrmbasepro: Has there been one particular moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
Oye: Yes oo!
When I sing and testimonies follow,
That’s my joy.
Xtrmbasepro: Good to hear. You know in this race,all we are after is filling the airwaves with good news. We are tired of the bad.
And we are happy that with have laborers in this field. Your music is speaking Oye
Oye: You are right sir
Xtrmbasepro: So where can fans get your songs
Oye: My full album is up for sale @www.spiricoco.com
You can also search for oyesade oyekole on google to get my songs
Xtrmbasepro: Okay… Well done. Sure our followers would check them out. Thank you so much for your time so far.
Xtrmbasepro: What do you think about recording a song with a secular artiste?
I’ll like to say anyone can sing worship to God,He can use anyone
If he’s leading me to do it,I can.
But without his leading I have no reason to do so.
Xtrmbasepro: OK…thanks. We are rounding up. What would you want your fans to remember you for?
Oye: I want to be remembered for my unique sound and the message in my music.
Xtrmbasepro: And without doubt, I know it will be so…
Thanks for bringing good sound. Obviously, we are taking over
Xtrmbasepro: So you have any last words for us and the readers?
Oye: To the readers,Keep loving my music…don’t stop praying for me..I love you all.
