RainSegzy: Talking of education, which schools did you attend?
Wallace: I have had a good educational background right from day one. Attended Ronik Comprehensive Secondary School( graduated 2007). Then graduated from Covenant University. Studied Chemical engineering. Was a tough one, but I pulled through.
RainSegzy: What was that special moment you experienced in school that you can never forget?
Wallace: My first date with my ex. really special because then i used to be extremely shy to talk to her face to face. She basically was the one teaching me how to be bold and comported when talking to her. Sweat ran down my face every time i did but after a while, i got more confident
She said “Wallace you can do this” (Wow ❗Someone who is charming ❗ ???? ???? ????)
RainSegzy: Out of many careers out there, why did you choose to be a music artist?
Wallace: To be honest I have been an addict to good music since age 4, back in secondary school, I was like the music Google to my mates. If they heard a song and they don’t really know the artist or the lyrics to it, they come to me to tell them and write the lyrics out for them. Then I just loved to sing and dance to good music. Did a couple of freestyles with my mates back then in secondary school just for the fun of it. I took music up professionally in 2017 after having a couple of dreams( night dreams) where I wrote and composed a song that influenced people in the world
RainSegzy: What was your parents’ response when you told them your career of choice?
Wallace: My mum loved it but my dad disagreed
RainSegzy: Can we talk about the music industry challenges in your country?
Wallace: The major challenge with music is funds and good backings You basically need enough money to promote any good record you got or else you won’t be heard.
RainSegzy: What are the behind the scene anecdotes you can share?
Wallace: Most times before a major performance i am halfway plastered ( drunk) lol.
RainSegzy: In your opinion what are the difficulties of being a music artist?
Wallace: not having enough support financially to push records.
RainSegzy: Who is your role model?
Wallace: Michael Jackson and My mum
RainSegzy: What things would you not like to do?
Wallace: to stop giving out Good records
RainSegzy: Tell us about a project or achievement that you can consider to be the most significant in your career.
Wallace: My first video titled- my Way ( on youtube) It’s all about the experience and stories I have seen and heard from people close or far to me. My Way talks about intermarriage( whereby people of different race, culture or tribe can get married regardless). I have had few close friends talk about challenges they go through from their parents on marrying a lady from their own tribe. There was a very close friend of mine Anthony ( Igbo)who dated his girl ( Hausa) for 2years plus, and after introducing her to his mum, she rejected the girl saying she is not right for him because she is from a different tribe. My Way encourages people of different tribe to get married regardless.
RainSegzy: Do you have any personal ambitions yet unattained?
Wallace: My Ep(Stardom)
RainSegzy: Are there any new projects you’re working on that you can talk about?
Wallace: Body calling. Body calling is a dancehall sound with a fusion of blue. A phenomenal sound talking about a lady that is found irresistible.
