Rising musician, Olusegun Olowokere aka Iceberg Slim has pleaded openly with colleagues in the music industry not to copy his latest hairstyle.
The musician who is set to dole out cash to a lucky winner of his dance competition which is tagged The #WaveChallenge, in a chat with pressmen, pointed that his voice and his hairstyle are the unique features which distinguish him from other musicians.
According to Iceberg slim “I don’t sound like anyone else, from my accent to my tone/diction. Secondly, I try to constantly reinvent my hairstyle, so as to not look like anyone else either. So far, these two things have been distinguishing factors.
When I started the MoHawk in Nigeria, I saw the likes of Phyno and Peter (P-Square) replicate it. I later changed my hairstyle and decided to just do one single braid going to the back, now I see X-Busta and a few others have reproduced it, once again. If they weren’t entertainers, this would probably be fine. Well, I’ve changed it yet again! Please o, no more copy copy” He warned.
The musician who draws his inspiration from notable superstars like Drake, Kanye West, and 2Face, lauded the Nigerian music industry, affirming that it has definitely come a long way, and still has a long way to go. According to him “I’m honestly impressed at the level of success and global recognition we’ve achieved thus far. It can only get bigger and better with time.”
Speaking on what prompted him to unveil the dance competition, he said “I asked everyone to do an Instagram video of themselves or someone else being creative to my song, “Wave”. They can sing, dance, rap, act, anything, while the video with the most views wins N100,000. It’s just my way of appreciating my fans.
Other songs released by Ice berg include ‘Too Much Money’ featuring Banky W, ‘Ayanfe (remix)’ featuring M.I., I. He has also been featured by 2Face on the track titled “Best I Can Be”, and Tiwa Savage in the tracks ‘Shout-Out’ and ‘Make Time’.
