ThinkGhMusic-What does this song Den-Den mean to you and why did you write it?

Den-Den-Den-Den means a lot to me in that it is a slang for kids growing up in a community together with their friends, where we report matters to our parents and just be kids.  Life if you spoiled something, I will say-ma sofun mommy mi…den-den. So it is a song that has a lot of sentimental meaning for me as a kid growing up in my community.

ThinkGhMusic-What can we look forward to in the near future from you?

Den-Den-By His mighty name I will be on top of my throne ruling my world like Oba of ile ife…musically.

ThinkGhMusic-As a musician, how do you feel giving back to your community who support you is important?

Den-Den-Giving back to the community starts by giving them soul food (music) for free.  I am always willing to share with the less privileged anytime it is needed, I am the one that loves to give rather than to take and keep.

ThinkGhMusic-Where do you see yourself in the music industry in 5 years from now?

Den-Den-International and global domination is my focus for every day to build within myself.

ThinkGhMusic-Thank you for your time, I wish you nothing but the best in your quest for success….God Bless you always!~!
