Syndik8 Records Hip-Hop Recording Artist and entrepreneur, Chukie Edozien, better known by his stage name Lynxxx, have revealed his reason for producing "shallow music" in the past.
According to him, in a recent interview with BBC Africa, his fans was the reason why he makes such music which he later got bored of because its unfulfilling.
"I was unfulfilled with what I was doing content wise, the market wanted the same pool of subject matter which was money, alcohol and women. It gets boring especially for somebody like me that has a background of knowledge."
He went on to say that the usual "shallow music" got him limited, something too bad for a versatile artist of his kind.
"It was as if I was limiting myself like I was giving only five percent of what I know to my audience. I decided to take a break to make sure I know why I am doing music and work on music that I personally believe in because music is art and nobody should tell me what to paint."
The rapper who now produced inspirational songs went on to talk of the influence of the industry and the fans on his musical contents.
"It’s a bit of both because I experimented with songs that were out of the norm and those songs were not as received as the shallow records."
"I think that at that point, that was what the listeners were looking to hear and right now, the industry is ready for real music because they have played that for so long that it has worn itself out."
"I still make hip hop, the difference is that the shallowness and immorality has been taken out. So you are not going to see a music video from me where you have women shaking whatever. It’s not that there won’t be women but it’s going to be classier," - he concluded.
Lynxxx recent work is on Masterkraft produced single titled "CharaCha".
