MI Is The Reason I Am A Musician - Selassie.

Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Selassie, whose real name is Richie Selassie Okonkwo, has proven that he is ready to take over the fiercely competitive Nigerian music industry.

The 23-year-old music artiste, from Aguata in Anambra State and a graduate of Geological Engineering, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana plans to do a music collaboration with Ycee and some other popular music starsSpeaking on the people he looks up to in the industry and plans for collaboration, Selassie hinted of his plans to work with Ycee in near future.

'The number one person that made me come into music is MI. In fact, back then, I knew every MI song word for word. That was how I actually started music. Back in secondary school, YCee and I loved miming artists' songs. YCee was a Lil Wayne freak and I was an MI guy. We put up shows and YCee would do Lil Wayne stuffs and I would do MI stuffs and girls will be screaming. One of the students then came up to me and said; 'guy, I've watched you do this; you're very good at it. I'm your classmate and I'm your fan. You should look into it. That's how I started.

Shout out to YCee. He's a successful young man right now and I'd like to do a collabo with him this year. I've spoken to him about it and the Selassie Family's working towards it.

I will also be a blessing to work with Olamide sometime soon. Olamide puts flavour on songs. It will be a huge pleasure to work with him and Wizkid. Fingers crossed, I believe God works in mysterious ways,' he said
