Read excerpts from the interview below…
You now have a label of your own, how many artistes have you signed on?
I have always believed in discovering new talents and that is what my record label will be known for and not just signing artistes. I have discovered more producers in the industry than anybody. I will be supporting and grooming some artistes and ensure they become a force people will reckon with in the industry.
If you have the opportunity to go back to Kennis Music would you?
For sure, I would want to go back but with a different arrangement and understanding . Many things have changed, you know. This is not the same type of industry we had back then . So, in order to remain relevant in today’s industry, one has to follow the trend very well.
Your crush among the female artistes?
I’m actually crushing on Niniola. She is very good, talented, and beautiful. She is just perfect.
Has Jaywon ever delved into movie making?
Of course yes, I will be one of the cast in the next Super Story. I featured veteran actors and actresses in one of my videos, “Back to sender’’. I am an entertainer.
Your take on musicians having Baby mamas?
I have actually said a lot about this. I don’t really see it as bad or as a problem. My only fear is people should take responsibility for their children. In fact, I think we should have a law that will see anyone who does not take care of his or her child sent to jail.
