The super talented, award winning Nigerian Musician, Abolore Akande popularly known as 9ice; who recently went into politics but lost at the primaries under the flagship of All Progressives Congress Party (APC) to represent Ogbomosho North/South/Orire Federal Constituency at the House of Representative recently spoke with us about his next mission and his undying passion for politics.
Here are excerpts...

What prompted you to go into politics?

I believe the politicians we have are not doing their jobs properly. And I know most Nigerians are not happy about what is going on on the political scene. Therefore, there is a need for somebody  to rise up and make the amendments people want to see.

Did you think you had the winning factor initially?

Nothing is assured in life. One has to ask before one is given. Like the Bible says: Ask and you shall be given.

Were you planning to abandon music for politics?

Like every other politician, you have to leave something behind to attend to the need of the people. When you serve, it's different from working to earn a living. I did set out to serve my people and I am glad to have tried. I am equally glad to be back into music.
Are you still rooting for politics despite losing at the primaries?

If the opportunity comes again tomorrow, I will still try again. Politics is part of everyday life for people living in a democratic country. Politics is part of my daily life. As a Nigerian, I can vote and be voted for. It is my right. Politics will always be on my list. It's in the blood.

What are you up to lately?

Right now I'm working on the video of my latest works; CNN and GRA. So far we have shot the video of LAST BUS STOP in the UK; NEW MONEY and LIFE IS SO BEAUTIFUL featuring TUFACE in Lagos, Nigeria. Aside that, I'm working on a new single; the first single from my upcoming album titled RETURN OF THE KING.

Are we expecting another hit?

We make music but it's only God almighty that turns it to hits. I hope and believe in God as much as always.

Any plans to remarry soon?

One day man go marry, no matter what, no matter how. By God's grace, someday.
How would you say the Nigerian music scene is faring these days?

The scene is great. We are working towards having a great industry. We are getting to that point of distinction; gradually. 


One of the missions of Haven Homes over the last 10 years is to provide opulent and exquisite living that meets the lifestyle of celebrities and the upwardly mobile.
The mission has recently been carried out to perfection at Richmond Gate; an estate by Haven Homes after Lekki Phase 1. They have recently completed a sprawling ultra-modern recreation centre with all the exquisite trimmings like swimming pool, side attractions, state of the art gym, lawn tennis court, sit-out-bar, mini shopping outlet, salon and a whole lot more.
These are exclusive home designs with the celebrity lifestyle in mind; and geared towards the collective celebrity living i.e celebrities living in the same exclusive territory as offered in Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills  Bel Air Estate and so on. The 4 bed terraced homes are as from a hundred million Naira.

The distinctive designs of the exteriors and interiors are regularly reviewed to meet latest trends in home designs; hence the 2015 designs.

The dolls to watch out for in the year 2015 are the Queen of Africa dolls. The doll specially crafted to excite and meet the needs of the black child. 

Even though these set of African dolls made a late arrival into the world market, it made an explosive entry, beating the record of the blonde white Barbie doll that was launched in America in 1959.      

The brain behind the Queen of Africa dolls is Taofick Okoya from the popular Okoya dynasty. A suave gentleman whose ideas never run dry. He was a ceramics graduate at the Yaba College of Technology, Nigeria; and he also attended the Centre of Pottery in the UK. 

Ever since he graduated, he had been designing and hand painting exclusively. He later formed his own company called Fiko Solutions  which was into soft furnishings,clothing, shoes and novelty items supplies.      

His creativity led him into manufacturing the African dolls. He was concerned with the rate at which white dolls flooded the market when he was shopping for a gift for his niece. He decided there and then that he had to make a change. That was how the Queen of African Dolls came into being. They are a variety of dolls clad in different Nigerian traditional costumes, African braids, head gears, exotic beads, with different Nigerian names that represented the three main Nigerian tribes.
