Veteran Nigerian singer, Baba Fryo has revealed in a new interview with Punch that he’s currently working on his new album.
Baba Fryo said he’s a land speculator and he’s making a good amount of money from the business.
Fryo said “By the special grace of God, I made some good money as a land speculator. Apart from helping to keep body and soul together, the business has changed my life. But show business brought me to limelight and I could never have abandoned it.”
The reggae singer thanked those who cheated him on his Denge Pose and Notice me album. He said “I thank those who have cheated me. But for their actions, I would not be where I am today. And these include those who introduced me to the land business,”
On his money, Fryo said “I am not like other artistes that like to talk about their worldly possessions, the millions of naira in their bank accounts and more. So I won’t tell you what you want to hear. I am just a simple man and I want to keep maintaining a low profile,”
On his style, “I have decided to update the style due to pressure from my fans. Each time I try to do other things, they insist that I must do my original style. So I had to satisfy them.”, he added.
On if he’s working with promoters, he said “I want to handle the production of my new album alone. When I am done with recording it, I will promote it myself before worrying about how to distribute and sell it in the market. But I want to release a single first,”
Fryo said young artistes have no respect and he’s not working with them. In his words, “I won’t even consider it because I don’t want any trouble with these young boys. Many of them have no respect for older musicians. So I want to do my thing alone”
Fryo is yet to release his album date and he said artistes should do other business apart from music.
