Read excerpts of his interview with naij. com below:
Why choice of YAGI as the label name?
I picked the name because YAGI is the name of my debut album which mean ‘Young and getting it’ (YAGI) and it is like me because everybody knows that is my new logo. I am 22 and I am doing well for myself. Even with the name the album talks basically about me; I am just starting off and I am learning at the same time, I am getting it. I stand for YAGI and YAGI stands for me.
You left YBNL at the time when your career is growing, don’t you think that will affect your career and stand in the industry?
I am still very much around in the industry and good stuff is still going to come out from my stable and YBNL; the fact that I a floating my own label does not matter and does equally means I am no longer under YBNL because that is where a lot of people are getting it wrong. Olamide and YBNL movement is still managing me as an artiste and the fact that I have my own label simply means that YAGI records is been managed by YBNL. We are still together; I and Olamide still record in the same studio and work with same set of producers. As you all know that YBNL is a family thing and we all support each other.
