GISTS

Singer Agunbiade Joseph Temidayo, known professionally as Mide SF, is looking to carve out a place for himself in the Nigerian music industry. The artist, who has steadily grown to fame, leaves nothing behind to pursue his passion for music. But unlike most up-and-coming musicians who emulate their predecessors, he chose to forge his own path to success. The singer, who has just released his first official EP titled “Soft EP”, with songs like “Rollercoaster”, “Joro”, “Feel Alright”, “Overdose”, has boasted of being more talented, organized than Grammy Award winner Burna Boy and also spoke about his plans to conquer the Nigerian music scene.

He said: “Soft EP is my first official EP. The idea behind the title is the uniqueness and untouchable nature of my brand; the nature of my talent is incomparable. Burna Boy ranks among the greatest Nigerian artists of this generation. I watched him and I can tell you that he has talent and that he has a very strong stage presence. He showed this generation that we can, through hard work, believe in ourselves and achieve the ultimate goal.

“However, I’m not bragging or trying to woo you, I believe in myself and can tell you I’m better than Burna Boy, just be careful.”

Speaking about how his childhood in Nigeria helped him become a better personality and inspired him to fall in love with Afro-beat, the Ondo State-born artist said: “I would say I was very influenced by my childhood. Growing up in Nigeria, mainstream radio stations played either Afrobeat or R&B. There was nothing but reggae. The clubs were completely taken over by Afrobeat and R&B from Psquare to D’Banj. I will say that it has really been a lot easier for me to be versatile with my style and my writing. I know if I hadn’t had such exposure from an early age, it would have been very difficult for me to write a song in afro-beat.

As a Germany-based artist, one will wonder how Mide SF intends to enter the music industry in Nigeria, but the soft-spoken artist says he is in no rush but that he just wants to contribute his quota to the music industry. “I believe that if you do something right, naturally people will recognize you, you don’t have to force anything. I want to produce songs that are always green, songs that touch the heart, that connect with today’s reality, songs that heal the world and give hope to the desperate. Success will come by the grace of God.

“The Nigerian music industry is something to be reckoned with in the world right now. We just need to expose the industry more to the world because they need to know that the Nigerian music industry has huge talents and has so much to offer. In the 90s we could barely see where they were playing Nigerian songs, but the reverse is what we have today, in every nook and cranny you see people dancing to our music, ”he said. -he declares.
