He Is Probably Not In A Rush To Serve Up His Debut Solo Album Because He Doesn’t Want People To Think The Album Contains His Previous Work Under P-Square
After his recent interview with HipTv which had him revealed his decision to postponed his album release date to next year, the Rudeboy Recordz lead act, Paul Okoye (aka Rudeboy) was on Cool FM studio to further throw more light on his reason(s) for the decision.
KingRudy (as he also preferred to be called) early year interview on Wazobia FM suggested his first solo album is somewhat done and dusted and could be out pretty soon, probably before the year wrap up – a prediction that is now assigned unrealistic as the star singer decides not to be in a rush to have his debut solo album served up.
Speaking to Dotun of Cool FM, Rudeboy said; “I thought of releasing an album this year, I changed my mind because if I do, most people would think it is from the 2017 group. I do not want to do that; instead I would rather continue the Rudeboy movement. Why would I release an album and when people listen to it, they begin to have different thoughts?”
“I struggle with the fact that I want to talk about myself alone but people want me to talk about both of us. As time goes on, it will fade off unless people start reminding me of that. Trust me, I have granted so many interviews and once somebody asks a direct question about the past, I tell them that I cannot answer that. I just don’t want to live in the past anymore, however, I’m sorry but the music would still be what it was like in the past. Right now, I want to push out my brand and my music which comes out about once every two months. If I release an album, some people would have heartbreak; so there is no need for that,” – he continued.
On his sound, friends and management team, KingRudy made it clear that, due to his quest to push his new brand, he has changed a lot of people around him, his management team and even his circle but not his elder brother, Jude Okoye.
“Everything has changed for me even my circle. I am sorry but my brother Jude is still with me. I cannot change my music except you have $10m to offer me. But if you cannot do so, then shut up and listen to the music.”
Paul is not ready to jump into any collaboration anytime soon as he direct his energy and focus into serving the public with good musical content.
“Everybody is good, I do not have a clique and fortunately, I am cool with every artiste, I do not have issues with anybody. Even in the past, it was me that they called if they wanted us to do songs together. I would rather not work with anybody for now because in the past, we hardly did collaborations. I am not proving anything; all I want to do is have a good idea, do a good song, dish it out to people and they would enjoy it.”
