Singer, Presh gives reasons for disappearing from the music scene
By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian singer, Precious John , who teamed up with another singer, Kingsley Okonkwo a.k.a KCee to form the now defunct KCPresh had in a recent interview given reasons for his absence on the Nigerian entertainment scene.
In the interview with Saturday Beats, he said:
“I have been away from the Nigerian music scene because I needed to step back and rediscover myself. There were other factors I also needed to consider and put into perspective. Back then, I did not have a sponsor. What I had could have helped my career but along the line, it would slow things down so I needed to do some shows and go on tours. I travelled to countries like Italy, Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, Malaysia and the United Kingdom for my tour. I also went to school to polish myself. I was tutored on voice grooming so that I can be good with a live band.
“When I finished the tours, there was enough money to do what I had in mind. I am also coming as a solo artiste and even though people know I sing, it is only in their subconscious. I needed to know how to go about being a solo artiste so that I would not keep doing what everybody was doing. Even though I would want to do some commercial songs, they have to be above standard. There are things that people expect from me.”
