- MOBOLA Sadiq

an up-and-coming artiste, Kayode Taiwo, aka Richkjtmus­ic, has said that his music revolves around real-life situations. In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I’m an american rapper and singer living in Nigeria with my mum. I grew up in Canada and Nigeria. I am also a graphic designer and digital creator. My audience is mostly nigerians and Americans online. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been hard doing shows in lagos and elsewhere. However, I want to explore all genres of music, including trap music.

“My songs are about real-life experience­s. one of my songs titled, Sad Valentines, is about not having a girlfriend. another song, Sad Christmas, was about a lonely holiday period when my mum was detained. Flip the Switch and Hating on a Man are about the haters and ignoring them. My extended Play album is titled Kidjusttry­ing, and it matches my names— Kayode Joshua Taiwo.” Richkjtmus­ic, who is a son to controvers­ial journalist, Kemi Olulonyo, also noted that his mother had been helpful to his music career. He said, “I go to assignment­s and interviews, including concerts with my mum. My songs are inspired by singers such as Bryson Tiller, Jay Z, Kanye West, Drake, Wizkid, Davido and Burnaboy. I want to explore all genres of music.”
