GT Da Guitarman whose real names are Gbemiro Tokunbo has chosen to address the reason for his long trem break from the music industry.
He wrote a really lengthy post explaining all that has been happening. Read below:
Hi guys. Would like to believe some people still use twitter and I’m the one who went MIA – I haven’t been here in years..lol
As a lot of y’all must have guessed, yes, I stopped pushing music!! Though, there was almost no week I wasn’t performing.
I had/have so many other deeply rooted passions aside music. And at a point it must have been confusing choosing.
While I kept hustling doing other businesses, music effortlessly will sort bills despite me shunning it
I’m a forex trader, poultry farmer, managed a quarry once, was operations manager for an haulage company, managed billboards.
Sold cars, lands, apartments, marketed HetoGrow Solar Power banks, Sales Campaign list goes on. Yet music was effortless.
I must also say this year has been pretty smooth. Having a wife and kid has been a blessing. A lot has changed!
Even the direction of music we have decided to push out now has.
Early this year, my now manager (@hypertekbaby) paid me a visit, he convinced me on pushing music again
I showed him all I was doing, and he asked me, ‘Do you fill fulfilled?’ A big sigh!
Since I still do gigs, I insisted ‘I NEVER LEFT..JUST THAT PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE DEAD WHEN YOU ARE NOT ON TV.’
Then he started listing all the boys I supported back then and how much they are making now. My eyeballs almost popped out.
I told him, if I’m ever gonna give this a thought then I’m coming for the MONEY!
One of the marketing books I was reading then says, ‘dont try to sell what you can make, make what you can sell.’
So heads up, this might be the very last album I will drop. It’s called ANIMAL INSTINCT; won’t drop till late 2017 or early 2018 though.
So here’s calling on all movers and shakers of the industry, make I chop small biko #WireTheMoney drops next week.
Why ‘Animal Instinct’ you may ask? Lion no wan chop antelope but if e no chop am e go die lol. When your animal instincts sets in, it’s survival.
Shout-out to all the boys I supported when they were nothing but never looked back. I’m happy for y’all..You are my new inspiration.
