On embracing the responsibility of leading the movement of Afrobeat with an international flavour: “It’s something very big. I have children myself too so I feel the weight of this responsibility all the more. Even if sometimes it’s pretty heavy to have all these people look at you for inspiration. That’s why I always try to bring out the most serious part of me. I owe them”

On the album’s collaborations: “With the people I worked with on the album, it was a real collaboration. We met and created. I see it like that, people coming from two worlds who manage to join on a common ground.” 

On what the future holds for the rest of his career: “I just want to continue. I see my career as a movie or a book. But here I am going on a tour around the world. Thanks to happiness, good things will always come out.”
