At what stage did you start loving music? What inspires your lyrics?

To be honest, I grew up in a very Godly home with my dad being a pastor and all that so I was always in tune with music, especially gospel music, I wasn’t able to listen to circular music but anytime I’m out of the house I do listen to them and when I’m back home I do remix what I’ve heard outside, so fast forward to when I was in boarding school that was where I wrote my first song and performed it back in school and I fell in love with music instantly, I was 13 at the time.

My lyrics come from anything I’m going through in my life at the moment and stories my friends tell me about their situation and all that, music is my happy place and I feel most alive when I’m in the studio.

When did you record your first track? how many tracks have you recorded and are they accessible to your fans?

I record my first track when I was 13 and from then I’ve recorded over 80 songs, some files have been lost and I have some in the vault waiting for the right time to drop some heat. I have a song out now titled ‘Rabba’ and it’s out on all platforms, it was produced by a talented upcoming producer named Preest.

Have you performed to a live audience before? How do you handle pressure from female fans during live stage performances?

Yeah, I’ve performed at a live audience a couple of times from my early days back in Warri Delta State and here in Lagos also, at first I was always nervous and just do my thing and dip but as I grew older and I had to learn how to face the crowd and vibe with the audience in my own way.

The wedding comes a few years after Freeze’s first marriage crashed.

Elechi, on the other hand, was married to Paul Odekina who claimed she committed adultery with Freeze while they were still married.

A court in Port Harcourt had earlier ordered Daddy Freeze to pay a fine of N5 million to Odekina as damages.

The purported affair with Elechi, it was gathered, resulted in the birth of her son Jason in 2015.

Reacting to the controversy in 2021, Freeze had said: “There are issues I can comment on especially with regards to my own divorce case in Lagos.

“My marriage to Opeyemi Morenike Oni didn’t break down due to adultery, social media, or whatever she is claiming. It broke down because of domestic violence. I have court papers to prove it.”
