Interview: DRB LASGIDI

I've said this before, and for the sake of the people coming on my blog for the first time, i should say it again, I love getting inspired. I love young people moving beyond their comfort zone, breaking boundaries and achieving great results in their niche. It not only encourages other young people that very few things are impossible if one is determined but also raises the bar for them. Now you can tell that it was definitely with much pleasure that i embraced the opportunity to interview Boj and Fresh L of DRB last week, after their performance at the "DRB Halloween party" in plymouth.

These artists have taken Nigeria by storm, to many people, they came unannounced & without warning, and since then it's been from one hit single to another. From the very successful Industry Night in Lagos, Nigeria to performances in London, Birmingham, Plymouth, Manchester, etc, not only are we glued to our screens, but they genuinely keep us wanting more.
I'm going to keep this as brief as possible as no one enjoys reading long texts really :) and it's important to note that i interviewed them separately, as i had specific questions for each of them.


From your successful mix tape "bojonthemicrphone' to many more collaborations with Lynxx, Lola Rae, SDC, Ajebutter, etc, and shows literally everywhere, with no doubt it's been a wonderful year for you Boj, 
What inspired you to go into music?
-I just stumbled into it really, it wasn't my intention, like i didn't deliberately plan it, i just recorded a few songs and people liked it and i just carried on from there.

Let's just say i'm sorry?

 I'm sorry, i'm sorry, i'm sorry, is that enough? lol 
I've had a lot to do this past weeks, that i've neither had enough time for myself nor my blog. I honestly apologise and i promise to be more consistent (by God's grace) 

Half way through my study  time yesterday, i stumbled on this multi-media personality that has seemed to have gotten a lot of attention recently. What i particularly couldn't understand was why there was so much 'hate' or 'dislike' for her. And as i'm particularly inquisitive, and i love to analyse and rationalise situations, I honestly went from 305 belittling & insultive comments to many more interviews & blog articles just so i really understand the problem.

I will share one thing that stood out to me, and it was the need to constantly pray for the grace to constructively criticise situations as opposed to condemning people. I found that what we often fail to realise is that these people are humans too, they have feelings and are capable of making mistakes. And we often find it very easy to be judgemental, condemn, not forgive and bring down other people but find it so easy to pray for God's forgiveness and favour before men. Simply understand this, God is no respecter of persons, he respects principles. The measure of mercy you give is what you get. Finding it easy to sit by gossip blogs insulting and possibly leaking these people's secrets but praying later for up-liftment and promotion don't correlate. When next you ask God for mercy, be sure you're being merciful to others in words & acts and tolerating their shortcomings.

Lots of love
