Ice Prince Talks About Music, Boko Haram & Buhari On The Breakfast Club 105.1 Fm

Nigerian
Rapper Ice Prince was a guest at The Breakfast Club 105.1 Fm in New York
where he spoke about Nigerian music, Boko Haram and how the incoming
government will make things happen.
 
Why is American music more embraced in Nigeria, and Nigerian music is not well embraced in America as much….
“I guess it is
just what it is. America is world power right. The President of America
is like the President of the World, the most popular chef in America,
will probably be the most popular chef in the world. But I feel like,
America is still starting to open to other genres of music, I see reggae
music is popping out here, and that’s dope. I see some of the UK
artistes are popping here too, and that’s dope. I think Africans need to
get that too.”

Do you feel pressurized at some point to leave Nigeria to become successful?….
“No. I have
never had to leave I still live in Nigeria. I just travel a lot, I’m
just out there a lot because Nigerian music has gotten to a point where
it is really, really blowing now. It is a huge market. Artistes are
starting to make a lot of money. From the business, there’s a lot more
bigger shows. There’s corporate getting involved, international
companies getting involved, so stuff like that. So the market is getting
bigger everyday.”
About Boko Haram….

 “Unfortunately.
It is a terrorist group. They were disturbing peace. But it is a little
bit calm now. Like Nigeria just got a new President, we just elected a
new president. Congratulations to my country. my new President. General
Muhammadu Buhari. He used to be a general. Anyway he is still a general.
Once a general, always a general. He is the new President. We just pray
that that stuff goes away completely.”
His perception of Africa….

“Unfortunately
(When Charlamagne Tha God says over the years the pictures of Africa
they’ve shown us is of kids with flies flying on their faces). Africa is
beautiful, really, really beautiful. If you haven’t been there, you can
only be as ignorant as anyone who has not been there. But like you
said, South Africa is crazily nice. That’s one of my favourite places in
the world after Nigeria. And Nigeria is beautiful. It is hot all year,
it does not get too cold like that, we love it.”
