Fans and followers of one of Nigeria’s finest and pioneer of Igbo rap, Okechukwu Edwards Ukeje, popularly known as “Mr Raw” will soon hear from him again as he is set to drop a video of a new song recently released titled “Engine Caterpillar” featuring Zoro.
The video, directed by Avalon Okpe, another Abia son, from Arochukwu local government, is expected to drop in about a week after Mr. Raw’s birthday, which is on November 1st.
In a chat with Abia Breaking News at a popular sit out in Umuahia, the Ko Gbadun crooner expressed appreciation to the director, Avalon for handling the camera shots and Mr. Evans for the lighting, which according to him “made the video very crispy clean.”
Mr. Raw also explained his absence from the music arena for sometime. He said “now I’m a married man, a grown man and have some other things to take care of. I have a son, I have a wife and other businesses that took me away for a while, but I’m back because I need to drop something for my fans, keep entertaining them.
I still want to drop a couple of songs to make my fans happy and feel the voice again.”
The rap star who has not been involved in any scandal or marital issue, stressed that he has had to make sacrifices to “strike a balance” in both his family and business, but noted, however that those negative stories emanating from celebrities are “sellable news“.
Mr Raw advised young and upcoming artistes to “believe in themselves and be their number one fan, work hard and be consistent.”
