JOTHAN: ''Wizkid is my favorite artiste but I'd prefer to work with Davido''. An exclusive interview with JOTHAN!

KING JOTHAN is a student of Ahmadu Bello and a fast rising artiste , born and raised in Kaduna state of Nigeria. He has a few things you should know about him. 



BAM
So JOTHAN can you please briefly introduce yourself.

JOTHAN
My name is Jeremiah Jonathan popularly known as jothan.
I'm from kogi state But I base in zaria kaduna.

BAM
Your stage name, what made you arrive at the decision of making JoThaN your moniker ?

JOTHAN
To be honest I wouldn't say it's a decision I really thought about. My name is Jonathan I wanted something shorter so I came up with jothan.

BAM
Simple and short yeah, 
 so original tooπŸ‘ŠπŸ½
Jothan, can you tell us about your educational journey so far?

JOTHAN
Well I'm in my final year in Federal college of education and currently in my second year in Ahmadu Bello university. I'm running the two programs together

BAM
wow, that's really huge!
getting two birds with a stone huh
πŸ˜…πŸ‘ŠπŸ½.
When did you start making music?

JOTHAN
I'll say I started making music this year professionally. I made a lot of noise since 2014 then I went on a break to properly redefine my sound. And this time I'm back and better.

BAM
Well you are back now, and way better. 
So Jothan, is there any challenge you as an Arewa (north) based artiste is facing?

JOTHAN 
I see, Yes definitely. First of all there's no industry in the north. So we're constantly trying to break into the industry which is in the south.

BAM
That's the biggest challenge rising acts are facing, and even the so called blown arewa artistes.
but then, don't you think arewa can have an industry to call her own if good music is being delivered to the listeners constantly and Consistently from talented acts?

JOTHAN
I think So bro. But in the end it is what it is. Just like how California is the Hollywood capital of USA. The music industry remains in Lagos. But that's a discussion for another day.

BAM
well, you might not be wrong on that.
The music you do is so appealing to your audience, where do you get your vibes from?

JOTHAN
''I no fit sing my song and tell the world I did it on my own''😁

BAM
oh wow!
This is coming from the future I  guessπŸ˜‚
About that, care to let your fans know when your are dropping the song? ''grace''?

BAM
can you describe your sounds? the blend, the fusion?

JOTHAN
Okay so alot of people already know this but I think I should I just put it out there. My favorite artist is Ariana grande and Taylor swift. I listen to pop music and rnb alot. Adding to that I have my roots deep in afro so I blend em.
BamMedia

BAM
I wanted to know what genre of music you listen to, but now I guess it's Pop and RnB .
You do listen to Nigerian Pop stars right? Like Johnny Drille, Ric Hassani and the rest of them?

JOTHAN
Nah I mostly listen to wizkid, oxlade, fireboy and many upcoming acts.

BAM 
okay
So, if you were not doing AfroPop, what genre of music do you see yourself exploring?

JOTHAN
 Electric, afrosoul
 
BAM
man!
Thats too far from usπŸ˜‚
do you think Nigerians listen to electric and soul?

JOTHAN
 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Nigerians will.

BAM
you say that with so much confidence, how can people who listen to pleasing 'Noise' welcome the exact opposite?

JOTHAN
 Then came omah lay

BAM
 The nigga doing wonders out there, but then, this is about you and not himπŸ˜….

 Who do you sight as your biggest influence?

JOTHAN
Hmmmn that's a very big question. I'll say Ariana for real. I like how she rose against all the odds of being a woman to the most followed artist in the world. Her story is truly breath taking

BAM
Wow, that's inspiring. 
She just might be the biggest female artiste at the moment.
 Within the scope of Nigeria,  who then do you see as your biggest influence

JOTHAN
 Wiz!

BAM
Wizkid, that's explains allπŸ˜…
 And if you had the choice to work with an established artiste in Nigeria, who would it be?

JOTHAN
Davido

BAM 
why?

JOTHAN
πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Davido knows how to make a star!

BAM
 Wow, big big words from you..


Away from music, 

BAM
Who do you think is the GOAT, Messi or Ronaldo?

JOTHAN
 Definitely Ronaldo.

BAM
Oh wow, You do watch football right?

JOTHAN
Actually no

BAM
Okay,
So JoThaN, 
If given the chance, who do you wish to specially give thanks to?
And what do you want to let your fans  know?

JOTHAN
Okay God first he's the source of life and inspiration. Secondly my Friend Victor ryhmes, Timothy, And Rapheal.
And then my  producer Skidx he's definitely whipped me into shape. Finally my Kiki I love her so much.
I want y'all to know that I'm here to stay and y'all will keep getting good music from me.

BAM
And your fans tooπŸ˜… yeah?

JOTHAN
OMG!I forgot please include them
I don't feel like I've got any fans yet though.

BAM
 Don't forget them oh, after GOD na themπŸ˜‚

JOTHAN
For now there are just people who listen to my music. I feel there's a point where I have to get to before calling them fans. I feel like I can't actually call them that yet

BAM
yes you do, 
You have meπŸ˜‰

JOTHAN
πŸ™ˆ

BAM
I totally understand.
Alright Kvng JoThaN,
