Today I’ll be having an authentic Gen Z Superstar and a leading light for an entire generation of young Nigerians.
From his work to his life and of course, the lessons that a fast rising career has taught him so far.

He would be talking about it all on this episode of #WithChude

Joeboy talks about his music!

“I put much pressure on myself and I listen to my songs about a million times before I put it out there. Because I’m always looking out for mistakes or flaws but at the end of the day, if people like it, they do.

There are songs that I never felt could actually blow, like before I dropped ‘beginning’ my second single last year. Two days before I dropped it I called Eazy and was like, I didn’t want to drop the song because I didn’t feel people would like it as much.

The embarrassing moment in his life!

“Some Challenges on the way, maybe you fail some exams, maybe you owe school fees. Like there was one part where it was school fees, yea. That thing was so embarrassing. I need to say this on camera to schools. I don’t know whether they still do it but if a child owes school fees, don’t call the child out and say you’re owing school fees. Just tell the child not to come to school.

There’s one other thing they used to do, they used to flog the child for not paying school fees. The child doesn’t have money now, so I need to put that on camera for anybody that owns a school who is watching this, do not embarrass the child because he is owing school fees.

It was really embarrassing for me at that point because I think it affected my esteem too at that point because, I remember one incident, I was in JS3 because they used to come to this class to name people that owe school fees. So before they even said anything, people were like Aminfewa Joseph, so I still remember till today and I still get those guys for mind, yeah. And they’ve tried to reach out to me, I just ignore them like why are you talking to me? They might not have meant it but e pain me.
