Popular Nigeria disc jockey and music producer, Imohiosen Patrick, popularly known as DJ Neptune, says he’s surprised that one of his songs, Nobody, is still making waves seven months after its release.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Scoop, DJ Neptune, said, “I am a private person and only allow my work to speak for me. I am not a shy person like people think but I like to mind my business. I just want my reputation to speak for me. I don’t think my life contradicts my profession because I have been in the music industry for 19 years and it has never been a problem for me. My fans love Neptune the performer, artiste, producer and DJ. I only try to separate my personal life from my job because I’m just not a loud person. However, I have always loved to dress very well, but people don’t notice because I am not everywhere.”
On why he featured Big Brother Naija (Lockdown Edition) winner, Olamilekan Agbeleshe, aka Laycon, in the remix of Nobody, Neptune said, “Laycon was one of my favourites in the just concluded BBN and when I went to congratulate him on stage after he won, he told me he wanted to work with me. Around that time, I was about to wrap up work on this song so I decided to feature him. While he was in the house, he liked the song. People wonder why I did the remix but there are different versions of the song worldwide. It has Latino, French, Hausa, Igbo and other versions. The remix featuring Laycon is just one of the 12-track extended playlist that would be released later in the month.
The song is actually special to me. It entertained music lovers during the COVID-19 lockdown period and it has just refused to fade away. It has been seven months since the song was released but it is still making waves with over 21 million views on YouTube.”
