Nigerian music artist, Olusegun Olowokere known by his stage name Iceberg Slim is back in the Nigerian music space and this time, he says the goal is to correct some of the misconceptions people have about him.
The artist who has been in the spotlight in recent times after he apologized to his ex-girlfriend, Juliet Ibrahim has a new single that is rocking the airwaves.
Iceberg apologized to the Ghanian actress just days after he released his new single “Way Up” and is hoping the song would show people another side of him.
In an interview with Happenings Radio’s TGIF show, the singer said;
“I did this song because I felt like I needed to do a body of work to ‘paint’ my image. There’s a misconception that Iceberg Slim is just a rapper. And I feel that’s because of the way I was introduced to Nigeria back when the whole ‘better than MI’ situation.
“Many people started to see me as that rapper from Yankee. But I’m not just a rapper, I’m a producer and a singer. In fact, I’ve been singing before I started rapping.
“When people hear me singing now, they are like ‘oh, he’s gone commercial’ but they don’t know I’ve been singing before I started rapping, so it’s not like I’m just trying to sing.
“It’s that kind of misconceptions I’m looking to correct. I don’t want people to box me, saying ‘he’s a singer or just a rapper’, I’m a musician. I make music“.
