Lol
For an Upcoming act that’s quite impressive..
Speaking Of Which Your Song Aboikpa Wat does it mean?

Haha. Aboikpa iz a song to appreciate the african woman for their natural endowment
Loool So am Guessing Owen J’s Woman has to be Endowed? Or are there other qualities
Lool. Boss me no know o .but I already have a serious girlfriend doe. I believe beauty with brains are still d best qualities
So U Saying She Just Has To Be Fine and Intellectual and That’s all it takes??
Beauty,brains,good attitude .that’s what it takes lol
LOL..well fair enough..
Back to your music..you have 4 songs out there? Whats the next step for u as an artist?
Yup,iv been getting lots ov label offers,am just chilling and waiting for the best offer,for now am just doing more of collabos, my song tugbeje ft hakeem d dream will soon be out with a video doe
Labels??? Really? Can u spill out a few?
Haa. Lool, I don’t think my peeps will like that oooo. Loool, but b4 march I’ll be signed doe.
But Thought You Had a Record Label Already That’s Managing You?
Metrorush is not a label, its just a management team,that grooms young artists
.They Have Really Done a good job to be honest
Yea. They have.
Your Upcoming Single ft Hakym The Dream Is That Ur First Feature with someone major??
Yes it is
So any plans on more acts or which other acts are u doing works with?
Well for now its only hakeem
When is the single dropping and any plans for an album?
It should be dropping. This December, yea iv been working on my album for long now,lots of really good songs
When is the album dropping and Name of the album?
Well we are not sure of the name yet, but my album drops next year
Since Its Your Sophomore album any pressure?
Ah yea lots, my album is a mix of different stuff,d trend here in nigeria is doing just doing party stuff,but my album is a mix of both worlds,songs with really good lyrics that touch d soul and also party songs that get you dancing,so because am coming out with something different there is a lot of pressure. But I can handle it
So Outta Of The Studio What do you do when u are not writing songs
I sleep.o.I like sleeping lol,or just playing video games,or hang out with friends
Lol. Am a pro at any soccer game on playstation
Oh Really..I reserve my comments…I Like asking artist this question Nigerian Music Industry? Isit moving forward or what’s the way forward?
Nigerian music is moving forward definitely,u can’t compare now with 5years ago,music is very lucrative now,and u can compare our artists with foreign counterparts,however I believe once d issue of piracy is out and artists can actually make what they deserve from album sales it would be much better.
Very True…Based On The Fact That You Artists Spend Lots Of Money on production and all
Yea We Do
So Who is your favourite nigerian act right now
Hmm,fela is still d best for me,but I learn a lot from hakeem,wandecoal and wizkid.
Gun to the head question CHOC CITY OR EME?
Lol. Eme is doin better,and I like eme but thats just my opinion lol
Lol Nice! Thanks For Your Time Owen J
Its My Pleasure Jaydee
