African China Talks Life After Fame

Posted by Temitope Delano on June 13, 2016 in News · 5 Comments


Veteran singer, African China, was recently interviewed by PUNCH, where he talked about his life since taking a  break from the music scene.

According to the ‘Mr President’ crooner, while he had the fame, he made sure to save up for raining days.

African China said:

By opening a hairdressing salon, what I have done is invest for a rainy day. If you check properly, you would realise that some of those who began their careers about the same time I started mine are now broke. Today, a lot of them cannot feed themselves and their dependants.

Before fame beckoned, I used to work as a barber at a salon and I am not ashamed to say that. Now  that I am African China, I know this business idea would generate income on a daily basis because people always want to look good. The salon business is not the only business I have. I also have a boutique in Surulere, Lagos. I have a sound equipment rental business and I have a record label that is as old as Kennis Music.

Speasking on collaborations with the new and young artistes, he said:

I don’t have anything against them. I am friends with them and I am also an elder brother to them. Recently, I contacted Tekno for a collaboration but he has been busy. There was a time I needed to do a song with Ice Prince and I tried to reach him. His manager kept playing hide and seek with me. As a result, I lost interest. When Burna Boy was the rave, I telephoned his mum who was his manager at that time. They didn’t revert in spite of the fact that I telephoned  them several times.
