African entertainers should love one another — Singer

A budding singer, Oluwadamilare Dairo, aka Damo K, is of the opinion that African entertainers should love one another more.

Speaking on the changes he would like to see in the music industry, he told Saturday Beats, “I would like to see everyone love themselves because it is one Africa. We are all representing Africa, so we ought to show love and be loved genuinely by other music creatives.

“Also, there should be less comparison between artistes, because it breeds unnecessary hate and awkwardness.”

Speaking on the inspiration behind his latest single titled, ‘Cast’, he said, “Cast’ was partly influenced by my desire to create music that sounds like Fuji in a way that’s relatable to me. I wanted to be more expressive, instead of doing what listeners are used to when it comes to afrobeats.”

On what fans should expect from his forthcoming Extended Play album titled, ‘Kilalala’, he said, “In the course of making the album, there were many questions I needed answers to but I was not getting any. I had to remind myself that I could make good music.”

Asked to describe his sound, he said, “This is a difficult one for me but I must say my sound is unique. However, I basically do afrobeats and draw inspiration from artistes such as Wizkid, Omah Lay and Olamide.

“I don’t compare my sound to that of anyone else. I am original and that is why my fans love and admire my voice.”
