What Was Growing Up Like?
Growing up was not easy, I was born into a family where you had to struggle for everything but we had a very good family bond. I am the only son and I have four sisters. I love my parents and i can die for them.

As A Music Artiste, Can You Tell Us How Music Started For You?
I never really started out to be a musician, growing up, I was all about football. I was picked for Under17 trials but injury hampered my progress, I wrote my first song in camp, looking around and seeing musicians and listening to them, i released i could do better. And also my sister was into music, all these influenced me. I started music professionally in 2015 when i released my singles Jeje and Buga.

What Is Your Style Of Music?
I am into Pattaya, Old skool, Reggae but as an upcoming artiste, I am versatile and not restricted

What Has Been The Reception From Your Fans To Your Music?
They've always shown love, right from the first song, and also my first performance

Your Recent Single , "Testimony" Was A Success, Tell Us More About The Song And What Inspired It?
It was love actually, I was with my girl one afternoon when the inspiration came. She inspires me and corrects me, she made mention of my song and told me how good i sounded and i felt really happy and blessed, so i went into the studio and did a song for her, I didn't know it was going to be a hit and i am surprised it is gaining massive airplay on radio now.

So Are You Shooting A Video For It Anytime Soon?
Very, very soon we are shooting the video on the 4th and 5th of March. We will be shooting it in Keffi.

The video shoot is going to be big and standard so watch out for testimony video.

Are You Currently Signed Under Any Record Label?
No! I just got out of one though. As an upcoming artist it is not all about rushing to get signed under a record label. It is about putting effort and hard-work into what you do, your efforts and handwork will push you out , so when you finally decide to sign a record deal, you would not have to beg to get signed.

So Tell Us Ben, How Did You Come About The Stage Name Benbreezy?
I was in a football camp at one point and i went by the name handsome prince but my friends said it was too long, that i should just add breezy to my name Ben and since then (2010) I have been using that name.

Its very tough, yesterday i had to go from studio to class so its been tho, from studio to class, to checking out locations for video shoot and attending shows and events. Music is what i love to do so i don't see it as stress. So i just try as much as possible to combine the two.
