Pepenazi went on further that he had a funny Christian brother, and a father who was always listening to music, neither did he know he was getting used to those sounds. “Before we know, I was able to write songs, and push stuffs out, here i am, i know am not a star, but we are growing.”
He added that why he will always look up to Lagbaja, and Seun Kuti, is because of the eccentricity and versatility in their sounds, which you could relate to, back and forth.
