9ice Reveals He Never Promised Anybody A Grammy Award

Nigerian veteran singer, 9ice has revealed that he never promised his fans a Grammy Award.

In a recent interview with Punch, the singer revealed that he never promised anyone a grammy award. He further revealed that he was misunderstood because of his 2008 hit track  “Street Credibility”. He added that he promised himself the award and also to be an artiste to be reckoned with. He wrote:” People are getting it wrong. I didn’t promise anyone a Grammy award; I promised myself. I promised myself a lot of things. I promised myself a Music of Black Origin award and I got it. I promised myself to be one of the most reckoned with artistes and I’ve achieved that.

The Grammy award has been one of my targets as well. There is a Yoruba adage that says, ‘Ba o ku, ise o tan’ which literally means, ‘If there is life, anything can still happen’. I’m still doing music and who says I cannot get it (Grammy award) tomorrow? I still have that belief and I know God will do it for me.”

9ice also speaking on rumors that he had relocated to America with his family, and was working as a security guard. He said:“My strategy has always been to make myself scarce. I have always been doing that and it has been working for me. One can’t be in the faces of the same people, performing at the same venues for more than 10 years and not become boring. One might be able to pull it off if one is a building contractor or businessman, but as an artist, it would be boring.”

I have performed several times at the biggest event venues in Lagos State and danced the same way. Even the fans would get tired. Once it is announced that 9ice is coming on stage, they wouldn’t be excited because they can predict the songs I would perform and my dance style. But when one makes oneself scarce; although fans would still know the likely songs one would perform, they would also be anticipating the new ones one just released. They would want to know what the artiste has been up. So, it is a strategy and it works.”
