I don’t consider any performer to be a rival – Icegrin
Chigozie Olewunne a.k.a. Icegrin, may not love controversy as much as many other artists nowadays, but the young music sensation is performing so well with his craft that many industry heavyweights are taking note.
Icegrin has been in the music business since he can remember, with his hit
track ‘Right Place’.
The young man said the fusion of his vivacious personality into his
sound distinguishes him from other artists.
“If you delve deep enough, you’ll find that artists aren’t that different from
one another. We share a lot of interests.”
One item, though, stands out.
Icegrin also stated that he entered the African music scene in order to
make an impression.
“I have a lot to say and I needed to create a method for people to listen. As a result, I began to express myself through music. I’d want to send a message to Africa. I have a message for the world, and I’m here to deliver it, regardless of how ‘slow’ it takes,” he said.
Icegrin, who is presently conducting a TikTok challenge for his smash tune, ‘Right Place” and is currently doing a TikTok challenge for his hit single
“Right Place’, stated that he is not in rivalry with anyone and has a lot of love
and respect for everyone in the industry.
“Music isn’t a competition to me; it’s a way of expressing your emotions.
It also has a lot to do with your previous experiences. We all come from
diverse origins and have had various upbringings. We all have different
ways of expressing ourselves. As a result, music is not a competition for
me. It’s a way of artistically expressing oneself,” he said.
Icegrin, who is also known as Odogwu in some quarters, launched his music career with the release of his first single ‘Te Amo’ on June 12, 2019. He is originally from Imo, Owerri, but now resides in Lagos.
