Popular Nigerian singer, Kcee has opened up on why he switched from secular to gospel music.
He took to his Instagram stories to disclose that the switch was deliberate.
According to him, he deliberately made the switch to avoid stagnancy, after spending over two decades in the music industry.
Kcee said; “The switch was deliberate and intentional. I’ve been doing this for twenty-three years so, you can’t be stagnant.
“So sometimes for me, I have to move it around, switch it around. And that was one of those things I did. And it clicked, it worked for me somehow.”
On the inspiration behind his new sound, he explained; “For those that know about my career, it started from the church.
“I grew up in a home where my father was the DJ, selling some of those old records. So, I’ve always had that somewhere behind me to revamp some of those old songs.
“And so, when the idea came, I tried it and some people were like, ‘No, it’s not going to work. Don’t release it.’
“Some people were like ‘just try it and at the end of the day, it worked”, he added.
