Responding to a question on what he has that he thinks no other artiste has, he said, ‘“I don’t know what they have that I don’t have, but I know I have three things going for me: I work hard; I believe in God, and I listen to people’s advices, so that’s what keeps me going.’

On the inspiration behind his latest song, ‘Katapot,’ “It’s not like I was telling my personal story, I was just trying to create a love song for my fans. It wasn’t for me; it’s for the people.”

Gushing about his romance with the Don Jazzy-led Mavin, he said”To me, Mavin Records is the biggest record label in Africa. It’s been really amazing, and it’s like a family thing, and I really enjoy being part of them.”

As a boss, “Don Jazzy is an enigma…he’s ‘bad.’ He knows what he’s doing.”

On the greatest thing he has learnt from the talented beat-maker, he said, ‘His humility…it’s just amazing.’

Speaking on his short-term plans. Banks said, “An album is not in the works for me now; it’ll be released probably early next year. For now, expect different singles and collabos from me. I’ve been working with a couple of people recently and I’m enjoying the experience.’
