Rapper, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf known as CDQ has unveiled art work of his debut album as he opens up on his rise to stardom.
According to him, he has been through a lot on his rise to stardom, citing all the artistes’ he has worked with to get to where he is presently.
“I have got varieties of talents, I started as a basketball player, I played at Surulere back then after which I met Kaffy the dancer, that was when she started the dancing school called Magnito. I was dancing at a point when I gained admission into school to study Economics”. He said
CDQ further said that “It wasn’t easy for me combining music and school, so I had to quit dancing thing, and music is something that is in built, if you have the talent. I would just be in the class while the lecture is going on, I would just write down lyrics. During the break, I would just freestyle to my guys. Then I hooked up with M.I, Ice Prince.
They took me for rehearsals, and shows, I was too much younger then”. “Around 2008, I met Dagrin through Lala, a friend of mine. He told me he liked my tone on beat, but then I rapped in English, so he told me that why don’t I just do that same rap in my dialect.
So when I saw the music thing is taking much of my studies, I had to allow music rest for a while. Then I met Jaywon back then when he was in Kennis Music, i was his PA then, ‘omo I don hustle gan o’.
He also revealed that the 17 track album would feature artistes’ like Davido, Skales, and Banky W as he would be dropping the album titled ‘CDQuality’ this month.
