Why I switched from pop to cultural music – Singer, Kcee
Popular Nigerian singer Kingsley Okonkwo, aka Kcee, revealed he switched from pop to cultural music because he wanted to showcase the Igbo culture to the world.
The 44-year-old singer, who is currently making waves with his cultural-themed hit song, ‘Ojapiano, said he got the idea of doing cultural music in 2018, and since then he has been improving his craft.
He stated this in a recent interview with Channels TV.
He said, “It [inspiration for cultural music] didn’t just come. I had been working towards it for a couple of years—about four or five years.
“Since 2018, I started thinking about how I can take the [Igbo] culture to the world. That was when I started doing cultural music. For those who know my career, I wasn’t doing cultural music before. But I have it in me. So, at some point, I discovered the sweetness of the cultural side. And I decided how I could add the pop I’m doing to the culture and take it global. So, it has been a process; I did a couple of cultural songs, cultural praise, and then I found myself here.”
Kcee said many doubted him initially when he switched to the cultural genre, but he is excited that it turned out to be successful.
