A Nigerian artist, Abdul Rasheed Bello, popularly known as Skillz or JJC, alleged to have told the media that he had issues with D’Banj before he came back to settle in Nigeria said that it was all media hype and that he never said there was an issue.
He said that the story was published by the media to gain readership being a celebrity.
“I see D’banj and we talk. We are all good and nothing is wrong with our relationship. If you read the article, I never said I was betrayed. It was just headline hype,” he said
Music seem to be all about money for most Nigerian artiste but for JJC, it is just for fun.
On Rubbin’ Minds on Sunday, the artiste that sang “We are Africans” said that he returned to Nigeria to do music just for the love of Music and not basically for money.
He, however, said that as much as music was fun for him, he sees it as a business which should also bring money. “As far as you love music, you should be able to make something out of it and be able to feed your family from it,” he said
JJC moved to Nigeria in 2011 from the UK and he said that he decided to come back to Nigeria after a visit some years before that time.
“When I visited, I noticed that a lot has changed.
“First I came to promote one of my projects and I noticed that the government here had done a lot of job by reducing the rate of crime. I felt safe. So I decided to come back.
There have been huge developments in the music industry in Nigeria and JJC said that it was a good time for music in Africa.
Though single, he said he has a son, who is 10 years old and that he his son has been a blessing to him.
Looking ahead, he said that he is working on a song with Don Jazzy, but did not give the date the song will be released.
On whether he has friends, he said “music is about permanent interest. There are no permanent friends or enemies”.
