“It was spectacular because the time I started recording was during the lockdown. I started recording on February 18 (2020). I had this whiteboard on which I noted it,” he explained, further narrating the challenges he faced.
“After then, the pandemic and lockdown happened. It was very difficult because I would normally have my choir come in. I get to go out and chill if the thing no dey enter and come back later to continue when it feels right.
“But it also made me really take a step back and really think about what I was doing. The downside was that I think it made the album a lot more emotional. It just made it really deep because I was stuck in my own space, thinking.
“It affected the album. That’s why a lot of songs on it felt the way they did. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
