The north has always been a home for the best when we talk about Music giants in Nigeria, no surprises we have people storming it hard from that part of the world.
The Artiste we are featuring on our Monday Morning exclusive is no other person but Adams Abel(aka Mr. Knack) who in an interview with us gave a detailed info on his music career.
WHAT IS YOUR NAME:
My name as earlier stated is Adams Abel but most people call me Mr knack which is well known across the country
I am from Adamawa state which is in the north eastern part of Nigeria.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU DO
Well basically I am A hip hop artist, I do more of Rap and that’s my strongest link.
HOW LONG IN THE GAME
I Started music in 2014 from high school with friends like NattyBard, Gladson, Linx, etc.
TELL US ABOUT IT
Well i did songs when i was in school, started off by playing musical instruments and i can remember how we wake up at night to go to the school’s chapel just to get some records done.
it actually started by making freestyles with my friends the all the way to recording at a studio
I can remember being suspended in school just for sneaking out of school to record songs that’s how far we have come.
i can say that i am proud of that because it means that I can go at any length to make it big in this venture.
And most importantly I get inspired by things happening around me, the activities going on, and the people around me. Then I pass a message in a song.
I did my first studio record in 2016, where i released a single titled “circles”. This song earned me deal with one of Adamawa’s top Record Label Thugnificient Music Group.
Then i never stopped i kept pushing and dropped yet another single “why be say” and “The Message” in 2017, “Fine_Girl” in 2018 featuring indigenous rapper Martino Elcasino.
Now I am currently working on a freestyle titled “Run”, and also working on a collabo with NattyBard, and probably a single towards the end of the year titled “Identity”.
I also won an award last year (2017) in “Yola Entertainment Award”
Hip hop artist of the year
It’s never easy combining music and school at the same time, so my biggest challenge is how to balance my time, so that one will not take too much time off the other.
