Nigerian Ace Saxophonist Artist, Mike Aremu has revealed in an interview with Ayo Animashaum on Hip Tv how the journey has been so far in the music industry, how he has fared and what success he has attained.

While speaking about his journey and how he has managed to fare in the Nigerian Music industry,

he said;

“When I got into the music industry, I wasn’t looking at the accolades, I wasn’t looking at the rewards, I wasn’t looking at the awards, I was just focused on releasing, making, playing, doing something different.

At that time, I think it was a crazy idea to call yourself a saxophonist, a saxophonist artist. The people who risked it like your Femi Kuti, Lagbaja and all of that.”

Speaking further about his success,

he said;

“So I would say very very, I am not there yet but not where I was. I have done quite very well with just playing the saxophone and sometimes what we call success is clouded. Success for me is, I travel around the world and someone walks up to me and says, you are the reason I am here today”
