Popular highlife singer, Flavour, became the toast of the Nigerian digital space last week shortly after the snippet of a song in which he featured a visually impaired boy surfaced online.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the singer noted that when it comes to music, there are no limitations. He said, “I was introduced to Semah through Masterkraft and traditional Queen Ruler, Juli Endee, during my trip to Liberia last year. Semah performed at the Liberia Peace Cultural Centre. His vocals, intonation and confidence blew me away.“When it comes to music, impairments do not exist, as for me, music is spiritual. Therefore, there are no limitations as to whom I choose to work with. Cobhams Asuquo is another extraordinarily talented producer and composer that I worked with on “Virtuous Woman” as part of my fifth studio album ‘Ijele – The Traveller.’ There are no bounds to creativity.”
He told Saturday Beats that working with the visually impaired young man made him learn more about humility.
“Working with Semah has been incredibly humbling. He is a vibrant young boy, who at a young age is very sure about himself and confident. I admire these qualities, which have made it a pleasure to work with him. I haven’t really experienced any challenge working with Semah. He doesn’t allow his visual impairment to hinder him in any way,” Flavour said.
Speaking of his greatest achievement as a singer so far, the highlife musician simply said, “To date, I’ve been blessed with so many awards and accolades for my music. The greatest achievement for me is that my music has given me wonderful opportunities to contribute positively to different African communities especially through philanthropy.”
