Been a renowned artiste in the Nigeria music scene, Churchill who recently dropped the audio and visuals to the hit single SEXY MAMA which has been receiving airplay on both Radio and Television is an act to behold. As usual, it wasn’t in anyway easy connecting with this very busy young man, but at some point he was ready to have a conversation. Here are excerts…
WHO ARE YOU?
I am Churchill Ogoke, born into a family of 7. I am the First.
HOW DID MUSIC START?
Music has always been a part of me. I started doing music way back in secondary school where I used to mime, play around with music, rap and I used to play the drums too, I guess everyone knows how to play drums. LOL
HOW DID U COME ABOUT THE NAME CHURCHILL?
Churchill is my real name.
AT WHAT POINT DID YOU DECIDE THAT MUSIC IS WHAT YOU WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE?
Music is a passion, it’s a calling. Only that we got a very funny industry in Nigeria where its more like a game. It is a 50-50 chance. A place where talent is not enough. I have always wanted to do music.
HOW WAS YOUR CHILDHOOD LIKE?
My childhood was indeed rough, I mean very rough. I grew up in Kano State Nigeria where you were not sure of surviving the day talk more of the next day. I come from a family of absolutely nothing. I wasn’t born with any spoon at all, so you see what I mean when I say my growing up was indeed rough.
WHAT WERE YOUR DREAMS AS A CHILD?
My dreams as a child were many among which is music which I have accomplished. I also wanted to be a footballer because I am really good at the sport. I also wanted to be a doctor, but its scary when I see people being operated.
DID YOU ACHIEVE ANY OF THEM?
Yes, I would say I am achieving music, and I still got plans to achieve my dreams of being a doctor. You know how it is Dr Churchill.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 WORDS?
Cool, Calm and Sensitive
