FOLLOWING his selection as one of MTV Base’s artistes to watch this year, Indigenous Hip Hop Artiste, Terry Apala, has declared that he is not under any form of pressure to switch from his genre of music. Terry who has just released his first single in 2017, a thumping mid tempo song titled Social Media, boasted in a chat with Showtime that like artistes doing other genres of music, he is ready and would take Apala music to the world in 2017. He believes that with his talent and stage craft he can grab international award nominations and possible wins with his Apala music. “I’m not under any kind of pressure to change my kind of music.
“Before going into anything, you need to put God first, before I started this music career, I prayed to God, so I’m not under any pressure because I’m not competing with anybody, Terry Apala is different from others. I’m just doing my thing with my management and my team, there is no pressure coming from anywhere. I’m taking Apala music to the world; I’m going to get international awards like other big artistes.
“As a guitarist, I’m bringing my craft into the game; I’m trying to change Apala music from what it used to be. I’m putting my band together to change the game away from the normal DJ stuff we’re used to, and I know that by the grace of God, I will succeed”, he boasted.
