Very talented Nigerian singer and music producer, Cobhams Asuquo, has said that when it comes to matters of the heart, he is a helpless and hopeless romantic.
Speaking to Saturday Beats, Cobhams had this to say:
“I am a very romantic person or I would like to think I am. In fact, I am a helpless and hopeless romantic. I love my wife. She is an amazing person who I have known for so many years.
“However, the best judge who can conveniently talk about this part of me is the recipient. With women, I have learnt that it is not about what you think would blow her mind, it is about what she expects to blow her mind.
“A lot of men think they have done things that are wholesome for their spouse but half the time, they are only doing those things for themselves. I walk the talk, so I just keep trying to do the things I know she likes.”
Asuquo also described Innocent Idibia (2Baba) and King Sunny Ade and a few others as national treasures.
“When it comes to having an enduring career that has spanned decades, my respect goes to 2Baba, King Sunny Ade, and some others who have been around for so long. You can tell that they are not going anywhere anytime soon. They have become national treasures and a part of the history of the country.
“2Baba has made music with some of the greats of the nineties and he continues to make music with some of the greats of today. One can’t beat that unless one knows how to evolve. I think people like that are undoubtedly the kings and custodians of the Nigerian music space. Trends come and go but the real kings in the music industry do not make noise, yet they never run out of shows.
“I like to think of myself as an observer because I have been in the music industry for a long time. Observing and evolving, are the ways to make oneself a custodian of the history of the music industry. For me, the most important thing is to continue to be relevant. The industry is such that everyone has their day. There are some people who may not shine as brightly as other people but their candles never dim and it is a beautiful place to be. When you look at the likes of Sound Sultan, they have been around for a while and are still getting love from their fans.”
