Korede Bello – Celebrity Of The Week

Korede Bello Born on the 29th of February 1996, is an 18 year old guitarist and student of Mass communication at the Nigerian institute of journalism. He hails from Lagos state.

He started performing on stage at the age of seven, staged named African Prince.

Korede started music when he was younger when he listened to songs played by his parents .

My father loved the indigenous music while my mother preferred foreign music. I grew up listening to diverse music. I fell in love with music and it fell in love with me.

In school, Korede always participated in social activities such as acting,dancing and even singing competitions and represented his school. He formed his first music group with a friend in primary six and also wrote his first song.

When I got into secondary school, it was a different ball game. I was better and more into writing songs. But when I got into senior secondary school, I began professional music by recording my songs in the studio. My first official single was recorded when I was in secondary school.

His parents gave him the support he needed. His father got him his first guitar and even paid for his first studio session.

 

    I love my parents so much and one of the reasons is because they support me and would put their money on anything that would make me happy.

 

The African Prince

 

I came from them and they love music and they love supporting their son. The only issue they had, especially my mother, was my staying out late. She did not want me to stay out late because as of then, I was just writing my West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination. I had to be in the studio mostly at night and my mother did not really like that. Aside from that, everything was fine.

Korede is currently signed under Mavin Records where he released his first single titled “African Princess which featured Don jazzy. He was signed to Mavins record on February 28 2014.

THAT WINK THAT MADE GIRLS GO CRAZY

After his performance in Mavins Dorobucci , his fanbase has tripled and his popularity increased and has won admiration of  many ladies.. Especially with the wink everyone was crazy about.

Korede Bello and Olamide 300x300 EXCLUSIVE: Korede Bello Explains How He Met Don Jazzy

He draws a lot of inspiration from Asa, Tuface. His genre is soul music and he touches the life of many..

The new rising star said his name Korede means a harbinger of good tidings and thus he would want music fans listening to his music to feel blessed and happy.

The young singer who is yet to have an album of himself said that he was aiming at getting to a stage where listeners of his song will get blessing by listening to his music.

While responding to an  interview concerning the growing number of female music fans that are attracted to him, African Prince said that

It has always been his favor to have princesses around him. the number of female fans coming after him has increased since he joined the Marvin Records.

 

Even female celebrities are now flocking to him and so have even come to give him a kiss after watching him performed on the stage in one occasion.

He said,

“One of Don Jazzy’s colleagues heard my songs and loved it. He told Don Jazzy to give me a listening ear and he agreed. My manager, Casper, sent some of my works to Don Jazzy and we got invited to the studio.

 

 

We recorded some songs and here I am, a Mavin. It is solely a favour. It is God and all I can say is that I’m blessed to be in one of the biggest labels in Africa and I believe that I’m a blessing to both my label and the entertainment industry as a whole.”

 

Korede says his happiest moments are when he makes God smile and also his friends and fans.
In a recent interview, he was asked  three ways he  thinks  young people in Nigeria can better improve their well-being and stay happy?

First, the more alcohol free you are, the better your health and the happier you become.

Secondly, having a clean lifestyle attracts less drama, exercising, planning, eating good food, and being positive always will make you happy.

Lastly, I don’t think anything can make you happier than being at peace with God.

 


How did you meet Don Jazzy?
Since I started music, God has always been good to me. I can never be grateful enough. One thing I have learnt is that once it is time, it is actually your time. The truth is that if anyone had told me about two years ago that I would be working with Don Jazzy, I would say it was a big lie but I am working with him right now. A lot of people listen to your songs but it takes just one person to make a difference in your life. That is what happened to me because I released a song called ‘Forever’ and people loved it but it just took one person to listen to it and introduced me to Don Jazzy’s friends. They were also astounded by what they heard and they introduced me to Don Jazzy. He invited us to the studio with my manager, Casmir, we recorded some songs and that was it. When he heard my song, he said that I was a mega super star and that was it.

 

Aside from the prestige of being on Don Jazzy’s record label, what other benefits have you got?

It brought me a lot of things,

things that a mega superstar can be recognised with

, money, cars and a house.

That is why we are called mega super stars.

Why is it that you sing love songs?

One of the reasons I want people to really know Korede Bello is because I haven’t put out so many songs and the ones I have are love songs. I want to put out more songs for people to know that I am beyond love songs. My brand preaches love and it could come in songs you can dance to, highlife and different formats not just the conventional slow rhythm.

 

“Working with Don is one the best feelings an artiste could ever have. Jazzy is a musical genius; so every moment in the studio with him is always productive. And the amazing thing about the Mavin boss is that he’s open to ideas and he’s extremely funny. Don Jazzy is a living legend, and one of the greatest musicians alive,” Bello said.
