After the little break
Gbetustreet TV : Alright so Jozzy Nigeria is a tough market and ummm a lot of people are faced with financial crises, as an upcoming artiste do you get any financial burden while recording or anything as an artiste ?
Jozzy : First of all ummm i’ll say i have this grace of always having a producer by my side who always, when i call on, he turns up you understand a producer who understands i work with Lineo Beat and uhmmm a lot of rest of rest of the producers you know, so basically the economic crisis and financial problem is everywhere so, it’s still Gods grace that takes the artiste far especially that in which is pushing himself you understand so i’m pushing myself, am under the imprint of my own record label so i surely have financial burden sometimes cos sometimes you need to put the music online and all those things a lot of money and other thing so its normal but Gods grace just takes it far.
Gbedustreet TV : Wow that’s great, we give God the glory then ?
Jozzy : Yeah
