Life After Fame - African China

Veteran singer, African China, was recently
interviewed by PUNCH, where he talked about his life
since taking a break from the music scene.

According to the 'Mr President' crooner, while he had
the fame, he made sure to save up for raining days.

African China said:

By opening a hairdressing salon, what I have done is
invest for a rainy day. If you check properly, you
would realise that some of those who began their
careers about the same time I started mine are now
broke. Today, a lot of them cannot feed themselves
and their dependants.

Before fame beckoned, I used to work as a barber at
a salon and I am not ashamed to say that. Now that
I am African China, I know this business idea would
generate income on a daily basis because people
always want to look good. The salon business is not
the only business I have. I also have a boutique in
Surulere, Lagos. I have a sound equipment rental
business and I have a record label that is as old as
Kennis Music.

Speaking on collaborations with the new and young
artistes, he said:

I don't have anything against them. I am friends
with them and I am also an elder brother to them.
Recently, I contacted Tekno for a collaboration but
he has been busy. There was a time I needed to do a
song with Ice Prince and I tried to reach him. His
manager kept playing hide and seek with me. As a
result, I lost interest. When Burna Boy was the rave,
I telephoned his mum who was his manager at that
time. They didn't revert in spite of the fact that I
telephoned them several times.
