Former Mavin singer Korede Bello has made it clear that he will not be boxed in a fodler.
Following the release of his latest single ‘Mr Vendor,’ a troll took to the singer’s comment section to slam the singer asking if the former Mavin singer forgot his vibe and energy.
The troll tweeted;
‘Did Korede Bello forget the vibe and energy he put in composing that his hit Jam Godwin then? ‘cos I don’t understand this guy… What is this Mr Vendor.’
Replying the tweet, Korede said;
‘the issue is not with the music but the fact some people can’t stop seeing me through ‘Godwin’ eyes. I make music for a diverse audience and I refuse to be boxed in one folder’.
The singer in an interview shared his love for helping and empowering people. In his words;
“I love to help out whenever I can and I believe that giving is one sure way to advance in life. The more you give, the bigger you grow.
“Everywhere I find myself, I want to empower people. I want to be of help to my generation and that’s part of what informed my partnership with the Nigeria Police and other organisations. It is basically to correct some faulty notions that some people have about the police. Even though there may be some bad eggs, there are a lot of great and hard-working officers in the force. And we should encourage them for the services they render to the nation”
The singer who not so long ago graduated from the Nigerian Institute of Journalism stated that his love for music will not make him leave the industry for journalism.
In his words;
I will always be involved in music even if I don’t put out any song. I intend to own some media platforms in future but I will always be in the music sphere except God says otherwise. I am a student of journalism but am slave to music. I nursed a dream to become a radio presenter in the past but music is my passion for now.
I plan to star in some Nollywood films as I have been presented some scripts, which I am presently considering. But I have just dropped my debut album and I want people to see me as musician enough before I veer into movies.
On some of his struggle in the industry, he said;
Alternative genre artistes find it hard to achieve commercial success or have a huge following like pop artistes. The pop market is saturated and everyone currently sound alike and it is such a huge challenge. We really need to develop the fan culture here in Nigeria such that fans can actually support their favourite artiste’s career by purchasing his or her works.
