I sing better than most afrobeat artiste – Samsix
Nigerian-American singer, Samson Bademosi, aka Samsix, says he sings better than most artiste that sings Afrobeat.
Samsix, a promising and ambitious singer and songwriter who just dropped his latest single ‘shining star’ said the fact that most artiste lyrics are filled with Yoruba language is a limitation for them because of those who don’t understand the language. “It’s seems some of them don’t have anything to sing again and looks more like they are microwaving old songs.
Also, most afrobeat artiste rely on auto tune and studio effects” Samsix alleged. Rest assured that Samsix can sing acapella, and without special studio voice effects and still sound incredible. This is also due to Samsix’s early journey into singing coupled with his musical background in the church and choir. Pictures are seen of Samsix playing the drums since the early age of 4 years old.
Samsix whose song, Shining Star is gaining massive airplay on radio and appearing on top radio stations for interview said “What makes some of the artiste’s songs irresistible is the beat which shows they work with very good producer most times”. If I have the kind of exposure and opportunities at the disposal of some of them, I will show how versatile I am and how best I can utilize all the fantastic beats being made for them”.
Samsix first attempt at music came when he was 11 years old at Six Flags Theme Park, Bowie, Maryland, USA when he participated in a singing competition sponsored by a radio station and Disney World and came second.
His journey and passion for music while at Redeemers University had already blossomed, and this led to the recording of his first song “Walking On Clouds” at Knight House Studio, Yaba, Lagos.
Samsix professionally has released songs like Against All Odds, Delilah, Remember, Make it Out, Complicated, Going Down, Do for love, Fight for you, Kilode, Runaway among others.
Speaking on his plans for the year, Samsix said, “I am going to drop shining star video very soon. Also, watch-out for another single which is a collaboration with an international musician. In fact, there are so many on the shelve of my record label, Royal Magic Records, just watch-out”.
