Reminisce, the renowned Nigerian hip-hop artist and actor, whose real name is Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru, disclosed the reason behind his music hiatus in the most recent installment of the Zero Conditions podcast. The “Local Rappers” hitmaker stated that he stepped away from music to prioritize his family. Following seven years, he made a remarkable comeback with his highly anticipated album, “ATSG, Vol. 1.” He confessed that his artistic pursuits had consumed so much of his focus that he had scarcely noticed the changes within his household or spent time with his children, despite living under the same roof.
“There were times I don’t see my kids for 4 days and we live together. When I get back, they’re in school…
“One of the reasons I actually did take a step back. Let me tell you this story. Some years back, my wife changed the entire set up of our house. It was around that period where I was dropping albums every year and touring. My house painting was changed for almost two years and I didn’t notice. That was when I realised that I need to take a step back and be will my family. Family over everything.”
