Music Has Brought Me More Fame Than Fortune – ModeNine

One of the pioneers of rap in Nigeria, ModeNine has said that although he’s brand of music has made him popular, it has does not reflect in terms of finances.
“Music has got me fame but not fortune. The kind of song I do is hip-hop in its pure essence and the truth is that most Nigerians do not like it,” ModeNine said.
I can eat three times in a day; I am not hungry but I am not as comfortable as I would love to be. However, the book has not ended, so let’s see what happens. Music has got me more fame than fortune.”
Talking about not receiving any nominations at the Hip Hop World awards, he said “I don’t feel bad that I was not nominated in the Lyricist on the Roll category during this year’s Headies because even the sun and moon rotate the time they are meant to. I don’t do music with awards in mind; I just try and make good albums. I don’t mind if I am not nominated again for the next Headies because I was getting tired of being nominated for the lyricist on the roll category year in year out. I am even happy that I was not nominated.”
