New hip-pop act, Wallace, speaks on why he ventured into music


With the premiere of his debut album, a 17-year-old undergraduate of Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, Olawale Kayode-Adedeji, has shown that he has what it takes to compete in the music industry.
Also known as Wallace, the hip-pop singer told The  Point that he fell in love with music while in secondary school.
“I discovered my music talent while I was in JSS 2 at Victorotti Secondary School in Abeokuta, Ogun State. Music inspires people and I see it as the best way to pass message to the public,” he said.While his mother is yet to accept the reality of having a musician in the family, the father has been supportive.
He added, “My mum does not take me seriously, but she uses my song as a ring tone on her phone. My dad has never discouraged me, but emphasises that I should not let music derail me from academics.”
The young act recently released an album, which he believes is gradually becoming a household name. He is, however, on the look-out for a sponsor in order to enlist with a record label and shoot the album videos. Some of the songs on the album include ‘ O y i n b o , ’‘Bless Me’ and ‘In the Club.’
