‘That Igbo Boy’ rapper, Tobechukwu Melvin Ejiofor aka Ill Bliss has finally spoken on ‘Kedike’ singer, Chidinma’s exit from Capital Hill Records/The Goretti Company, which he co-owns with video director, Clarence Peters.
According to him, there is nothing unusual about Chidinma ditching her former record label. In his words, ‘It’s normal human nature. People need to disagree in life. Sometimes, vision and directions differ, and people choose new directions. It’s part of the business; nothing lasts forever really.
Even marriages break up. When artistes get more ambitious and they want to move on, you can only bless them and let them go.’ When we sought to know if Chidinma was loyal to the label during her stay, Ill Bliss answered, ‘She was absolutely loyal. What’s important is that Capital Hill continues to make history.’
On what he has been up to recently, he said, ‘I released a new single about a month ago called ‘Nku’ which features Flavour and Storm Rex.
I’m also working on my fourth album titled ‘Illygati.’ I’ve worked with people like Harrysong, Phyno, among others. Illygati is a nickname that people call me on the street; it’s coined from Ill Bliss.
My albums are titled in unique ways, and I decided to still follow the trend.’
