On January 24, 2022, famed Nigerian rapper Reminisce appeared on Ebuka Obi-Channels Uchendu’s TV show, Rubbin Minds.
Reminisce, who appeared calm, joyful, accomplished, and optimistic, among other things, informed Ebuka about the delay in the release of his album, Alaye Toh Se Gogo. He also discussed his time on King of Boys and his plans for the future as an actor.
Toward the end of the talk, Ebuka praised Nigerian music’s recent history, saying, “It puts a lot of pressure on individuals like you…”
Reminisce then clarifies, “Errrrm… 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. Say for the modern rap game, you have Ruggedman, Modenine and co as pioneers.
“For our side of the map, Lord of Ajasa, Olamide, myself… For the popstars, you have Wiz, David… For the new school, you would have someone like Ckay… I can’t be under pressure, I can only do what I can do and hope for the best.”
In Reminisce’s career, two of his five albums have charted high on American Apex charts, Billboard. Time Magazine also named him as one of just 10 rappers that anybody should dream to meeting across the world.
