Mavin singer, Reekado Banks, is undoubtedly one of the good artistes Nigeria can boast, a thing we are certain he knows.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, the Ladies And Gentlemen crooner, opened up on how his family handled his decision to go into music fully, is Mavin family and of course competition amongst them all.
On his parents being told about his decision to pursue music, Reekado said:
“My parents have always been supportive and they want the best for their children. When I initially told my mother about my intention, she had no problem with it. She then told my dad and he was okay with it too but said he wanted to be sure that I wouldn’t leave Jesus Christ.”
On gaining fame and its effect:
“I am still the same person I used to be. I do every other thing I want but I no longer have the liberty of walking on the street or going to some certain places I would have loved to go. I have always been the indoor type and even when I was in the University of Lagos, I never went to clubs or things like that.”
On the Mavin family:
“The only thing I can say we have among us is healthy competition. We encourage ourselves to do well and we’re one big happy family. We give ourselves good pressure, like when one person releases a good song, the others are motivated to do the same, or even do better. We also advise ourselves on how to do better and we constantly look out for one another’s progress.”
