Jaywon took the audience at The Waterside, Ikoyi on a very captivating career journey he began 12 years ago in the music edition of The Belfry Africa convened weekly conversational The Ask Series.
Speaking at this edition, the singer said, “I am a deep thinker, it helps my creativity when I write my songs,” adding that “every artiste is a platform on his own.”
Speaking about his venture into music, he said, “My mother had always wanted me to be an accountant but I had to follow my dreams; my consistency in the past 12 years has been for the love of the music.”
About what motivated his song ‘Odun yi’, Jaywon said the idea was to do a celebration song for December as the recording of the song was in November that year. “Late Singer No More Loss was the one who motivated him into making ‘Odun Yi’ a hit,” he further emphasized.
He also mentioned that the song ‘Champion’ was to encourage himself at a point when he felt he wasn’t getting what he deserved.
Recognizing personalities who have helped his career so far, the artiste gave a big shout out to Late Goldie for her continual support while she was alive; he also made a shout out to music producer MasterKraft who produced his song “Facebook Love” and “jawo jawo.”
Advising the upcoming musicians in the event, he emphasized that every artiste is a platform on his own so they should make good use of their platforms.
Attendees enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions, network and enjoy the unique ambience of The Waterside Ikoyi.
