CAN WE KNOW YOU?

I'm Alli Adeyanju, an indigene of Oyo state, Nigeria. I'm studying in the esteem Olabisi Onabanjo University, in the facaulty of ART, department of History and Diplomatic Studies (HDS). I'm a Nigerian artiste (Afro Pop), known by my fans and love ones as Super_A.



TELL US ABOUT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MUSICAL CAREER.

I've always been in love with music since I was still a kid. Grew up listening to the likes of Micheal Jackson, Fela, Tony Tetuila, 2face, Olu Maintain, Psquare and others. As a child born into a Christian family. I was part of the children choir - then I do lead most times.

In my hood with the elderly ones, we do listen to many Nigeria music of different genres....so that's where the spirit of music came into me. And there was a time something bad happenned when I was a teenager, then I sat down and started writting songs. That's how I first realized my music talent. Then I also discovered that whenever I'm doing anything music, either singing or writting lyrics, I used to forget about my sorrows at that particular moment.

But you know typical Nigerian parents, especially we christains.... they never wanted me to do music except if it was a gospel song. But it was when I got into university I had the freedom to do what I want. So I started doing my music officially in August 2017. It was my friend (Fresh Kid) that took me to the studio...then we did a cover to dotman 'My Woman' song... and the rest is history, all thanks to God.




SO WITH THAT, WHAT'S YOUR FIRST SINGLE TITLED?

The title of my first single was 'JELE'. It was released in October 22, 2017.



WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES YOU HAVE FACED OR STILL FACING SO FAR?

Well there a lot of challenges we upcoming artistes face in nigerian music industy, But will talk about few. When i started going to show in 2017 to perform, I wasn't allowed to perform on many occasions,even in my school, so i had to beg countless times. There was a time i was confirmed to to perform at a show, the MC told me he's going to call me to the stage to perform but guess what? He never did, not untill they were done with the event. It was so painful.

The school's not even helping, there was a time i got invited to SOSSA award night (last year), I was almost attacke by some "big brothers" I think you understand what I mean by that. Imagine going to a night show to let your voice be heard, yet won't be allowed to perform, in a dangerous environment even... they don't provide accomodation or transport. Most times we sleep inside the club or risk going home in the middle of the night.

All thanks to God for giving me the strenght and protection. There're other things too like insults and critism but all the same... I thank God.





HAVE YOU DONE ANY COLLABORATION WITH ANY OTHER ARTISTE?

TELL US WHO YOUR ROLE MODEL(S) IS/ARE.
A lot. Adekunle Gold, Simi, Kiss Daniel, Burnaboy, Fireboy, Falz and many more....but I'll rather stop there.


TELL US ABOUT YOUR LATEST HIT.

That's my favourite and biggest song so far now. It's titled 'ADE'.  A lot of things brought about the song. It's a motivational and inspirational song. I got inspired for it when I noticed people were depressed  a lot these days, so I decided to make a song to console, counsel and motivate them, hence 'ADE'.


BASICALLY, THIS IS FROM YOUR FANS, ARE YOU SINGLE?

(Smiles) That's a very big question. I don't even know if I'm single or not but what I know is I don't have a girlfriend. I'm married to my music.



WHAT'S YOUR NEXT PROJECT?

I've lot of songs on ground, so very soon, we gonna decide which one to drop next, I won't keep my people waiting for too long.


WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY TO YOUR FANS AND TO THOSE THAT LOOK UP TO YOU AS A ROLE MODEL?
I really appreciate and love you all from the bottom of my heart, without you guys there won't be any SUPER_A. I can't appreciate you all enough. You all should should keep supporting me, I assure you all that the top for us very soon. To those who look up to me, you should always put God first in everything and never relent, never settle for less and never give up. I thank you all!
