Another movie starring Reminisce, the Nigerian rapper, has been set for a 2022 release.
The music star revealed this during his feature on the Rubbin Minds show with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, TV host.
Reminisce had his movie debut in ‘King of Boys’ (KOB), Kemi Adetiba’s critically acclaimed political thriller.
Although Reminisce didn’t reveal the title of his forthcoming film, the singer said it is centred around his person.
“I get approached a lot now for movies. But I make sure I bill appropriately, considering where I’m coming from as a musician. Beyond fees, I tend to also look at the script and see if it’s something I want to do,” Reminisce said.
“Apart from KOB, I did another that will be out this year. That one is centred around my person and name. I liked the script. But the billing is important. I have three children and school fees have to be paid, you know.
“I run a football agency now, doing ads and all that. It’s like a proper sports agency. It’s the same way music and advertising works. People don’t take musicians seriously. But imagine if I’m identified as a CEO of an agency.
“I had to appoint something who is really close to me. He has been doing the groundwork. I appointed him CEO. But we run it together. We’ve done stuff with big names. I have my own football show on the side, so I’m not idle.
“I’m not scouting players. I’ve done that in the past, six years ago. I ran an amateur football club. It’s a tough job. You get disappointed by a lot of people, spend a lot of money, yet you can get just one breakthrough player.”
Reminisce to put out fifth album ahead of December concert
He currently has four albums to his name, including ‘Book of Rap Stories’ (2012), ‘Alaga Ibile’ (2013), ‘Baba Hafusa’ (2015), and ‘El-Hadj’ (2016).
The musician, aged 40, further revealed that his next body of work would be released after his collaborative tracks with Buju and Simi are put out in the first quarter of 2022.
Reminisce also said a concert is also to follow towards the end of the year.
“With all that I do, the music hasn’t really suffered. I have my audience and I know how to serve them. I promised them an album last year my many engagements made me not release it. It has been ready all this while,” he said.
“We’re going off with the first [song] in three days. Next month, there’s one with Buju. In March, there’s one with Simi. Next, the album comes out. I’ve told you all, so let me rest on Instagram. You’ll get a lot of music this year.
“I’m in the mood and you’ll get a concert as well. From the artwork to the content, I like my music projects to be themed. In the album, I talk about how my experiences with people and how family made me rearrange priorities.
“I want my fans to grow along with me. They’re older as well. I want them to be able to relate to what I sing about. I don’t dress the same anymore. Where I am at the moment, I want to make that reflect in my music.”
