Adegbesan Abass Ayobami also known as RAPNINJA (@iamrapninja) has revealed his strong passion to change world through his sensational music as one of his topmost goal by calving a unique musical niche for himself.
In a chat with our reporter, RAPNINJA said: “Music is my passion,Music is inside me. Passion is a strong word that can take on different forms. Whether the form is love or hate or joy or sorrow, it is a driving force inside the human soul that brings about everything, from art to war. It is a result of great passion.
“It has been said, ‘If you change yourself, you change the world’. The passion inside drives these changes, and my goal is to change the world with my passion for music.
“People allow their emotions to be affected by the music they listen to and this vulnerability have a great deal of influence on the musicians.
“Listening to the foreign music really helps a lot, the likes of late 2pac Shakur, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Notorious BIG, Ja Rule, 50cent & others. While in College, I found out I was gifted in music, took interest in Afrobeats & rap so I set the ball in motion, putting one or two things together, I did lots of practice, freestyles, rap battles in & out of school, till music became a part of me.
“Eventually, I got the encouragement and support I needed from my family and friends, my brother’s constructive criticism really helped me, it got me through a lot.
Late DAGRIN CEO (Akogun) inspired me, I love his style of rap music, he rapped in my native language which is Yoruba. Safe to say he was my music role model. My biggest inspiration comes from what I go through in everyday life.
“Concerning my growing up, music was always one of my biggest strengths, and I believe it continues to be. I knew I wanted to major in music and English, and that’s what I did. For better or worse, I chose my hobbies based solely on my interest in them and without regard as to how I could forge a career from them.
“What always nagged me, though, was a near-total absence of ideas as to how I would take the knowledge I had accrued from my studies and put it towards a career. While I knew music to be my biggest passion.
“What I have learnt so far is that ‘follow your passion’ leaves out much to be considered. So music is my passion”, RAPNINJA revealed.
