Nigerian singer, Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa, better known as Joeboy, says he listens to his songs about one million times before releasing them for public consumption.
The 24-year-old musician spoke on his music career during the latest episode of #WithChude.
Joeboy also advised that people should not allow fear to hold them back in pursuing their dreams.
“I put much pressure on myself and I listen to my songs about a million times before I put it out there because I’m always looking out for mistakes or flaws but at the end of the day, if people like it, they do,” he said.
“There are songs that I never felt could actually blow, like before I dropped ‘Beginning’ my second single last year, two days before I dropped it I called Eazy and was like, I didn’t want to drop the song because I didn’t feel people would like it as much. I was nervous because I remember getting comments like the song should be good as ‘Baby’ ooo. But I had to summon courage in the end to drop it.”
“Now l don’t care anymore…but in the past I was trying so hard not to make a mistake and that made me picky. So sometimes I feel people should not allow their fears to paralyse them before making a move,” he added.
