MYSTRO IS LIVING UP TO THE HYPE LIKE ‘SUGAR’

MYSTRO IS LIVING UP TO THE HYPE LIKE ‘SUGAR’

Finally, the release of his debut album ‘Sugar’ on the 16th of February
2018 will justify why he has been rated as a diamond in the rough since
2004 when he surfaced on the Nigerian music scene.

“…It was a compilation of soulful music fused with sounds from
contemporary genres like Afro-beat, R&B, Soul and a little bit of Caribbean
sound. I mean the world is looking at us right now and I think the music or
sound has to be compelling. And that’s what this album and I represent..’ – @mystroofficial

With a deal with Sony/ATV Music publishing, South Africa, Segun Micheal Ajayi popular called
Mystro has worked his way up the ladder in the industry. He’s one of the
brightest multi-talented instrumentalists, singer, performer, songwriter and
producer we have around today. He has produced songs for Iyanya, Orezi, Ayo
Jay, Kcee, Harrysong and Waje to name a few. As a performing artiste, some
of his songs out now include ‘Issavibe’ featuring Davido and ‘Atarodo’ off
the Sugar album.

Kindly, talk about your debut album, when you started recording, the
challenges and success, etc. What inspired the album and the songs in it?

I traveled to the UK some months ago, and while I was there I decided to
put together the project of which I have had songs for over 11years in my
archives.  I re-worked some, and also created others from scratch. It was a
compilation of soulful music fused with sounds from
contemporary genres like Afro-beat, R&B, Soul and a little bit of Caribbean
sound. I mean the world is looking at us right now and I think the music or
sound has to be compelling. And that’s what this album and I represent.

First my nickname is Sugar; most of my friends labelled me ladies’ man.
Really I don’t know why but the whole idea is about embracing it and yes I
have a lot of female admirers. I was able to express a lot of that in the
Album SUGAR. Each song carries different vibes and values. I tried as much
as possible to identify my personality and what people expect from the
nickname and the album SUGAR. I mean sugar is sweetness, and there has to
be a story that sticks and one must be able to create such around other
tracks. It’s like a project in the university; the name must key into the
project and must be real and soulful when you get in front of the camera to
talk about what you created.

Challenges!

No challenges actually. It’s just to effectively manage my time and every
chance I get I try to develop myself in my field and know more. Big ups to
my friends that helped in putting out this beautiful body of work; Maleek
Berry, Nonso Amadi, Eugy, Tomi Agape, Ycee, and Simi. These guys came through on
the album and made it a huge success for me. I really appreciate their
individual efforts greatly.

How will you describe your journey thus far in the Nigerian music
industry?

My journey has been tough and awesome at the same time. I thank God for the
amazing people that come my way in the process. I can only get better and
so far it’s been getting better. I am not where I used to be and I am
grateful to God and my friends and family for showing me mad love and
energy. People like Bankulli, Mr Bugo, Mr Shopsydo, My Seyi Sodimu, etc.

Thank you!
