In this interview, Hiphopworld magazine caught up with producer and singer Selebobo.HHMW: Selebobo tell us what are you working on?
Selebobo: I’m working on a couple of stuffs with some artistes and currently I just shot a video for my song selfie, directed by mattmax and it’s going to be dropping anytime soon. So that’s what’s up now, selfie is the song from the TripleMG album.
HHMW: Do you have any song aside that in the TripleMG album?
Selebobo: Hmmm…yeah! Actually a song of mine just got leaked some weeks back titled Oroma Baby ft Davido. I don’t know how that song got out but it got out, so possibly we’d be working on a video.
HHMW: Ok let’s go back time now, what actually made Selebobo aside your first single “Oyoyo’’?
Selebobo: I’d say my work for Yemi Alade, the Johnny song. I feel that was what actually brought out the brand Selebobo. I also produced Ada Ada for flavour but a lot of people don’t know about that.
HHMW: So aside music, tell us about Selebobo as a producer.
Selebobo: My production life is not what I can remember, I just started it because my dad had a studio. Right from my primary school days I started remaking people beats and my dad and my brother will just laugh. But now here I am! Both my dad and my brother are into music and my brother was one of my mentors.
HHMW: When did you relocate to Lagos?
Selebobo: I relocated to Lagos last year before the TripleMG album.
HHMW: There was a rumour you and Yemi Alade were going out, how true is that?
Selebobo: Nah, there was nothing like that, I and Yemi Alade were just recording. There was really nothing.
HHMW: Okay, but there are a lot of hot girls doing music right now in the industry, tell us who are your best three right now out there.
Selebobo: [Laughs] why are you setting me up? Giggling… Okay for me, Seyi Shay is hot, mehn…Tiwa Savage is hot and Emma Nyra is hot too.
HHMW: Who would you like to work with in the music industry aside 2face because everybody wants to work with him, tell us some other artistes you would like to work with?
Selebobo: I’d like to work with Ice prince, I love Iceprince, like his style and what he does. I’d like to work with Psquare and finally with Phyno. And for the ladies, Chidinma and Cynthia Morgan.
HHMW: How did you come up with the name Selebobo?
Selebobo: The name Selebobo emerge way back because I used to use sele in my songs and what I mean is celebration. So I used to introduce myself as ‘Na me be the sele bobo’ so my brother told me that the name doesn’t sound bad and so that was how it started.
HHMW: Do you think you can break the level of your first single “Oyoyo’’
Selebobo: No one prepares for hit so if I did it before why can’t I do it again. Sure I can!
HHMW: Okay! Selebobo thank you for the time.
Selebobo: The pleasure is mine.
