Why I Stopped Singing Songs that are Not Sensible – D’ Prince

Stepping away from the shadows of his elder brother Don Jazzy, Mavin Records artiste D’Prince has proven that he isn’t a flash in the pan. The ‘Take Banana’ crooner in a new interview with Vanguard explains why he rebranded. He also gave his take about Korede singing Godwin in church. Excerpts:
  • The songs you do these days are different from the ones you started out doing. What is responsible for the change in your music?
Sometime last year, I had this re-orientation. It’s easier to make songs that are not sensible and it will be a hit overnight. We have done it before. I was with Don Jazzy in the studio and he said I have to start recording new songs. I had told him before then that  I wanted to start doing socially conscious
songs.
It took us weeks to deliberate if we should go that route or stick to our normal party music. We tried it out and I have started getting positive feedbacks. I  am yet to visit any blog that writes negative comments about the songs. When you actually sing something reasonable, people will reason and understand you.

I have realised  that you just have to put out music that people can get something out of. Even it’s a party music; it should still have a message in it. Fela did it. He had great songs and they had a message.
  • The fans blame the artiste for the bad lyrics and the artiste also says that is what the fans want. What do you think?
I think most A-list artistes know how to put a blend in the music. They make it playful and also still pass a message. You can always blend it.
  • Recently, your label mate Korede Bello performed Godwin in a church. A lot of people felt he shouldn’t have done that because he is a secular artiste. What do you think?
They have their point. It is one thing for a gospel artiste to perform in a church and another thing for secular artiste to perform gospel song in a church. Korede is saying that he can also go to the church and praise God. He has a right to praise God as a Christian, not as an artiste. You know how it is, some people didn’t see it that way.
