He expressed his desire to work with producers like Shizzy and Don Jazzy, while his musical influencers are Dbanj and King Sunny Ade.
Y19 said his lyrics are the distinguishing factor. “My next plan is to make a video. I write my lyrics like a poem. I can’t mention names of the artiste I would have collaborations with. I will allow the sound of the music determine who is appropriate,” he added.
