 I Am Still Too Young To Get Married – Skales

Nigerian Rapper turned singer, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, aka Skales, tells Olushola Rickett about his sojourn in the music industry

Did you achieve everything you set out to do last year?
Yes, I did. Most importantly, I put out my first studio album and worked with top artistes I have always seen as my idols. Last year was great for me, but there is always the desire to do more.
Since last year was better than 2017, I expect this year to be better than last year. I have started this year on a bright note already. I just released a new single, Feposi. I plan to do more songs this year and put smiles on the faces of people who have been supporting me from day one.

Have you really made money from music?
Obviously, music has made me who I am today. I have travelled to different countries and I wouldn’t have achieved that without music.
Music is a business and for you to get into any business, you need to study it well and know what people ahead of you did that worked for them. The music business is very lucrative for those that understand it.

Where is your dad?
My parents separated many years ago when I was a kid. I don’t know who my dad is; I don’t know if he is alive or dead.

Don’t you feel the need to look for your dad?
I believe that it is the work of a father to look for his child. I am about to start my own family; I don’t know if I care about that. Having a mother who has played a fatherly role in my life has made things easier for me.

Does your mum mount pressure on you to get married?
Yes, she does. She has told me many times that she cannot wait to be a grandmother and carry my children. But I keep telling her that I am not ready for marriage. I am more concerned about my work. Music is like a woman; it takes all your attention. It is hard to give music and your wife equal attention.

Does this mean you cannot combine music with marriage?
For now, it will be hard for someone like me who travels a lot. When I start a family, I will have to cut down on my travelling. We also need to understand that despite being an only child, I am still too young to get married. Marriage shouldn’t be my priority right now.
