OMOWUMI: We understand economics is not cupcake and iced tea, how do you combine your studies with your musical career?
EMAXEE: I don’t know book [SIC]… It’s very hard to combine though but I don’t enjoy economics
OMOWUMI: Since you don’t enjoy economics can we say you don’t like school?
EMAXEE: No, absolutely not! I like school, I don’t just like studying what I don’t enjoy in school. If I am studying something else it would have been better
OMOWUMI: What course would you have loved to study?
EMAXEE: Film making or performing arts. It’s stressful though but It would have been fun
OMOWUMI: You sure have a different thing in mind, did you apply for economics?
EMAXEE: No, I chose it because I failed literature in secondary school and I did not want to do another WAEC
OMOWUMI: So, back to music: Do you plan on going into music full time after school?
EMAXEE: Hmmm[SIC], That’s deep, music to me is not a job or work like banking, teaching, music is something I enjoy, it’s like eating food and drinking juice so am not planning to do it full time. I have other jobs I will focus on
OMOWUMI: What other jobs?
EMAXEE: Film making to be precise
OMOWUMI: You really must like film making, do you plan on featuring in any movies before you leave school?
EMAXEE: I don’t know yet, I want to do more of directing though
OMOWUMI: Are you a songwriter?
OMOWUMI: What is your drive for writing songs?
OMOWUMI: (cuts in) Happenings around I suppose
OMOWUMI: How many songs do you have now?
EMAXEE: I can’t count them but officially, I have 12
OMOWUMI: Asides singing, songwriting and filmmaking, what other things do you do?
EMAXEE: I love meeting new people, so I spend time talking to people and I also do graphics
OMOWUMI: May we go a little personal? Are you in a relationship?
EMAXEE: I have never had a girlfriend; I don’t know how it feels to be loved by a girl
