Edo state has always been house to giants in the Entertainment Industry amd this time around the latest to hit the ground rolling is none other than Ehidon (Tha Lyrical Machine)
UNVEILING THE MAIN DEAL
When quizzed about himself, he said:
“First of all I already told you my name Ernest Ehijimento Osin “Ehidon (tha lyrical machine) “
I am an artist (a rap artist) from Esan west local government (Ekpoma) of Edo state”
Speaking about his long admiration for the game he said “I av always fancy rap for a long time now I can’t remember when I started loving music”
“Growing up in a less than average home wasn’t of much boost and opportunity for me. At my secondary school days I started singing people’s song and one thing about me then is I like doing them word for word at a time I do some
form of entertainment in school by gathering a couple of my class mates and we start singing during free periods I was
always the lead vocalist (tho am not really a good singer I do more of rap now) cos I knew most of the reigning songs then word for word
Flashback my primary school days I always liked music and I av been having passion for music I wrote a couple of songs then (which later sounded meaningless as i grew up)
at a point in my secondary school I was introduced to rap songs by couple of my class mates who where always playing
Erigga’s songs and at a point I started rapping along with him his funny and crazy lines got me ‘famzing’ him
really hard and at after some time I on my own started thinking some lines which seemed good to my own hearing
I started listening to more rap arts from Nigeria and beyond
I love Hip Hop and I love rap”
SPEAKING ON WHEN HE STARTED MUSIC
Ehidon said he started off at 2017. I did my first studio recording and uploaded it and it got me a few fans
Goal was the title of my first single, he said.
Before my first single I did some rap renditions in church and other public places (sometimes I did songs that where done by other artists and sometimes I write for a particular program)
After my first single I was introduced to a renowned producer “Double Pro” By one of my friends who is a comedian (MC Leo by name)
since then I have done a couple of songs with different artistes around
What I really love most about rap over singing is the poetry in rap.
ALSO SPEAKING ABOUT HIS WORK SO FAR
I have done a couple of songs and still doing more
I got a song that is set to drop soon am thinking of dropping it on my birthday 22nd of January.
In one of my quite time, I meditated over having an annual event that seeks to brimg tigether artistes from across the
Globe and to the glory of God as at Last year October 21st I organized my first concert “Rap O’clock” (season one) it is proposed to be an annual event
Also he said during the course of his work-journey, he has gone to record a number of songs with a few artistes which include the likes of; Baby flex, G-strings, Richy Spencer and lot more
Plus I got more ideas in bag this new year yet to be unleashed…
EHIDON SAID HE LOVES POETRY AS WELL
“I am a poet myself I wrote my first poem (gospel poem) when I was in ss1
In 2013 I wrote one poem in memory of my dad”
Yeah. I am Set to drop a new song “Born Again” the song is dropping on the 22nd of January being my birthday
GIVING HIS PIECE OF ADVICE
“Okay my advice to fellow artists and entertainers both upcoming and already made is to keep on the good work
Desist from hating and dissing the sky is wide enough for us all to fly a good number of entertainers can perform in same stage and have same fans cheering them.
So no point envying someone’s progress pit in more work to ur God given talent and see urself in there sky like a “sky diver”
“Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard” quench ur hunger with that.
