Reminisce Not Under Pressure To Win Grammy
Time Magazine named Reminisce as one of just 10 rappers that anybody should dream to meet across the globe.
Nigerian musician and actor, Remilekun Khalid Safaru, popularly known as Reminisce, has disclosed that he is not under any pressure to win a Grammy Award as he is contented with what he has achieved so far.
Reminisce disclosed this while answering questions during Ebuka Obi-Uchendu’s show, Rubbing Minds on Channels TV on Monday, 24th January 2022. During the programme, Ebuka highlighted the recent record-breaking feats achieved by Nigerian music stars globally and asked if it does not put Reminisce under pressure.
The ‘Tesojue’ crooner opined that there are pioneers at every point in Nigerian music, who made an impact in their heydays. He said: “Me, personally, no, it doesn’t. I just try to do what I should do and what I can do. At every point in Nigerian music history, there are people who will be pioneers.”
He then made clarifications about what he meant by pioneers in Nigerian music. According to him, “Say for the modern rap game, you have Ruggedman, Modenine, and co as pioneers. For our side of the rap, Lord of Ajasa, Olamide, myself… For the pop stars, you have Wiz, David. For the new school, you would have someone like Ckay.”
Reminisce pointed that he has made history being a pioneer in the Nigerian music industry and does not feel he is under any pressure.
“I can’t be under pressure, I can only do what I can do and hope for the best,’’ the rapper added.
The 41-year-old music star, who seemed quite happy about what he has achieved also disclosed the reason for the delay in the release of his anticipated album “AlayeToh Se Gogo” and his plans for his future as an actor, considering his stint in Kemi Adetiba’s “King of Boys.”
Reminisce, who can perform in both English and Yoruba language has released five studio albums. Two of his albums had a high rating on American Billboard chart.
