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
