Nigerian Rapper, Baale Kayode, is a force to reckon with in the music industry. Baale Kayode is multi-talented, indigenous rapper and songwriter.

Baale Kayode spoke recently with Ayayamedia.com on his family, career, label, love life and many more.

Read excerpts from the interview below:

Ayayamedia: Who is Kayode

Kayode: Baale Kayode is a Yoruba boy that is from Iwo lga in Osun State Nigeria

Ayayamedia: How would you describe your music for the public audience if they have never seen you before?

Kayode: Salami Kayode Suleman as the full name, is an artiste that does hip/hop music and he adds little indigenous flavor to his style

Ayayamedia: Thinking back to early childhood, what was your first experience with music for the first time like?

Kayode: Wow!!!!!! Can u do it? How will your voice sound like? What will daddy and mummy say? That was the 1st challenge I was having. But it really went well because I really admire my experience that day

Ayayamedia: When did you first start singing?

Kayode: From childhood actually my daddy likes playing Apala music. But as I grew older I came up with hip/hop because my elder brother is a 2pac fan, The year I got inspired was in the year 2006, And I recorded my first track in the year 2007

Ayayamedia: Did your family always support your music career from the start?

Kayode: Hmm, Truthfully they never knew I was doing music, until 2013. When I told them it sounds funny to them because they always see me as that crazy son of theirs that always shout inside his room, But they never knew I'm up to somewhere., So being last year (2014), I told my parent that I will love to b attending music shows. That's when I and my father started little quarrel over my career, Because 90% of our parents today want their kids to be an engineer, doctor, lawyer etc., They never see music as option for me.

Ayayamedia: Lets talk about your style of music over the years?

Kayode: My style of music is unique. Because every day I try to make myself better. People listening to my latest single (nibolewa). people affiliate me with Olamide. But I don't see myself copying his style

Ayayamedia: Who are your musical inspirations?

Kayode: They are numerous to mention, but the person that first inspire me into music is our very own brother Sky.B. He made me believe in my Port Harcourt city and myself. I can still call on Da grin, nigga(mr)raw, ruggedman etc in Nigeria, Africa, In Europe, I call on 2pac,ja rule, fat Joe, jadakisses, bow wow and sometimes 50cent

Ayayamedia: Hmm nice one... What was the First Song you Ever Recorded?

Ayayamedia: Hahahaha... Are You Signed To Any Record Label Or Not yet?

Kayode: Still working on myself and my education

Ayayamedia: If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing?

Kayode: Let's not forget that I'm still chasing education. If I'm not doing music I'll be a computer operator engr/scientist.
