Nigerian indigenous rapper Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru better known as Reminisce shares some rare details about himself during his chit chat with Sunday Scoop.
The “El-Hadj” crooner mentioned that despite the fame and all the trappings that come with it, he isn’t quite happy he isn’t a graduate. Reminisce in his interview advised anybody who cares to listen to go to school even if they had other careers to pursue.
“For anybody who wants to make a career out of music, you have to be sure that you are skilled and that it’s something that you can do sustainably; if not, go to school. Either way, it is important to go to school, whether you go into full-time music or not. I actually regret not being a graduate.”
He also explained why he does not come on social media to showcase his lifestyle.
“I always keep my private life private as I believe that I have the right to my privacy. There is a very big difference between Reminisce, the artist, and Remi, the family man. I thank God because I’m comfortable and I don’t need validation on social media. I don’t have to put everything I own on social media so that people would know that I have arrived. Inasmuch as I’m not begging anybody for food, it’s all good. Instead of flaunting material things, I prefer to invest in people.”
When asked his alternative to music, the LRR boss Reminisce noted that he is a businessman and someday aspires to be a politician in future.
“I am interested in politics and I see myself becoming a politician in future. One is not going to do music forever and I need to plan my life properly. I also love to engage in business, so I see myself doing a lot of that too.”
