"I'm a businessman first before anything, be it as an artist or as a food vendor. I run all things by myself, and before I can achieve these things without having to run to anyone for help or support, I need to make money and source funds. So for those who say I am not doing enough with music, let me reiterate I am a businessman first."

An independent artist and what it entails to be one

Whitemoney also spoke about signing to Banky W's record label and why. He said

"I am an independent artist not signed to any record label. And to do that, I need plenty of money, so I'm a businessman first before being a musician. Also, one thing needs to be clear as an Independent artist you still need a distribution company. All big music stars do it so my deal with Banky W wasn't about me joining his label as one of artists."

Oyeze continued revealing the type of music he does and what his strengths as a musician are:

"I don't have a great voice, my music strength can probably be best felt during life performance, where you can listen to what I am saying and enjoy yourself while picking one or two lessons. So to a large extent I would best describe myself as an highlife artist."

"My Career is exactly where it is supposed to be," Whitemoney says

When we asked Whitemoney if he was happy why his music career at the moment, he said:

"My music journey has been amazing; I thank God, I can not complain. My career is where it is supposed to be. As I said before, I am first a businessman before a musician. I am doing my business while doing my music at the same time. So I can't complain."

"I was once a barber; I even used to ride Okada" - Hazel shares

"Many people don't know my story, and that's why when I see people criticise me, I am never bothered. I have gone through a lot to be where I am now. Bro, do you know I was once a barber? I used to even ride Okada. That's my story, and I'm tremendously grateful to God for where I am now."
