Europe-based singer Agunbiade Joseph Temidayo aka Mide SF claims he is more talented and organised than Grammy award winner, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy.
Mide admitted that Burna Boy was one of the country’s best artistes, but that he could outshine the ‘On the Low’ crooner.
“Burna Boy ranks among Nigeria’s greatest artists of this generation. I have watched him and I can tell you he’s talented and has a very strong stage presence. He has shown this generation that through hard work and believing in ourselves, we can achieve the ultimate goal.
“However, I am not boasting or trying to woo you, I believe in myself and I can tell you that I am better than Burna Boy, just watch out,” Mide said.
The singer, who has been on a steady rise to fame, is not leaving anything behind to pursue his passion for music.
But unlike most fast-rising musicians who emulate their predecessors, he has chosen to chart his own path to success.
The singer, who just released his first official EP titled ‘Soft EP’, with songs like ‘Rollercoaster’, ‘Joro’, ‘Feel Alright’ and ‘Overdose’ said the nature of his talent was unparalleled.
He added: “Soft EP is my first official EP. The idea behind the title is the uniqueness and untouchable nature of my brand; the nature of my talent is unparalleled.”
Speaking on how he’s growing up in Nigeria helped him become a better person and inspired him to fall in love with afro-beat, the Ondo State-born artiste said: “I would say my growing up has greatly influenced me. Growing up in Nigeria, mainstream radio stations were playing either Afrobeat or R&B. There was no other thing, except reggae. The clubs were completely taken over by Afrobeat and R&B from Psquare to D’Banj etc… I will say that it has really been a lot easier for me to be versatile with my style and my writing. I know that if I didn’t have such exposure from a young age, it would have been very difficult for me to write songs in Afrobeats.
