"I thought being a singer was just about dropping songs, I'm now aware that it is all about branding and promoting."
 
Izz L.A.X, a Afro Pop artist from Nigeria, is responsible for mesmerizing his audience with his sex appeal and mellifluous voice.  Returning from London, the young singer has made Nigeria his abode and has been making waves in the music circuit. In a conversation with Blogger  Berenice Mulubah, L.A.X tracks his musical journey from London to Nigeria.

C Liberia Clearly: What made you realized that music was your path
L.A.X:  I used to take my friends to their studio sessions in Lagos.  One day, the producer asked me to get in the booth and try something.  I did.  The next day, he called and told me that he was amazed by what  I did and that his how the journey started.   Of course, I had just completed secondary school in Nigeria and was preparing to go to London for college.  I couldn't give music my all at the moment, but I continued working with him while I was attending college in London.

C Liberia Clearly: When did you officially got into the music game on a professional level
L.A.X:  I started doing music professionally in 2010.  I dropped my first hit 'Caro' featuring Wizkid in 2010. Right after, I dropped my second hit song 'Ginger.'

C Liberia Clearly: How did your parents felt about you leaving the field in which you got your degree, to do music
L.A.X:  I got my undergraduate in Human Resources and my Master in Innovative Management, which I'm still working in. I write business plans for a company, so technically, I didn't leave my field of study. 

C Liberia Clearly: If you were to do a collaboration with a foreign artist, who would it be
L.A.X:  I will love to do collaborations with a lot of other African artists.  I will like to do a collaboration with artists from Kenya and Liberia. 

C Liberia Clearly: Any specific artist from Liberia
L.A.X:  I don't know any Liberian artist personally, but I will like to work with any of the good ones.


C Liberia Clearly: A good place to start is to start listening to some Liberian music.  Let's talk about your experience. What have you learned so far from this journey

L.A.X: When I first started, I thought being a singer was just about dropping songs.  Now I'm aware that it is all about branding and promoting.

C Liberia Clearly: At what moment did you realized you were famous
L.A.X: When I left London and when back to Nigeria for the first time to perform.  I was performing in a city called Ibadan, and there were girls in the audience singing my songs and crying.  That was a wow moment for me.


C Liberia Clearly: Do you have any advice for a young artist out there who wants to follow your footsteps
 L.A.X: You have to be prayerful, very hardworking and identify your sound.
 

C Liberia Clearly: Do you have any message for your fans
L.A.X: Thanks to all of my fans for their support.  I am working hard to bring you all great music.  I am always working on my voice, working on my music and working on my looks.  The fans have high taste, I have to give them my best.  I have a new project coming out soon, Please look out for my next work.  You can follow me on social media @ IzzLAX
