Singer Joeboy has revealed that he was moved to tears at the success of his 2019 song ‘Baby’.
In an interview with The Punch published on Sunday, the 23-year-old expressed shock on how his song was widely received in the Nigerian music industry.
“It was one of the best feelings ever. As a young boy from Akoka, Bariga in Lagos State, having the number one song in a country was a beautiful feeling. I almost cried at the success of the song and I’ll forever be thankful to everyone that supports me and my music,” he said.
When asked how he feels about being outshined by other rising musicians, he said: “I am not scared of being outshined, being where I am is not by my power but by God’s grace and blessings. I’ll always put out amazing music and I’ll be relevant for a very long time. The sky is big enough for everyone to fly.”
Born Joseph Akinfenwa-Donus, Joeboy was signed into Mr Eazi’s record label Empawa Africa in 2017.
He released his EP titled Love and Light in 2019 which comprises ‘Baby’, ‘Beginning’, ‘Don’t Call Me Back’, ‘All For You’ and ‘Blessings’.
