Nigerian singer, Joseph Akinfenwa popularly known as Joeboy says he randomly converses with inanimate objects like plants.
The ‘Duffel bag’ crooner hinted that he has four plants in his room that he communicates with.
Joeboy who featured as a guest in the latest episode of the Zero Conditions podcast said spirituality was “very important.”
He said: “You need a spiritual backing. It is very very important. If you don’t do jazz, you have to pray”.
Speaking on why he has tattoos of trees, Joeboy said, “Personally, I like nature. I like plants. I have like four plants in my room. I named them Anthony, Themal, Raphael and Vanessa. And I actually talk to them. I just tell them how I feel. I think it’s better to talk to plants sometimes than to talk to human beings.”
Joeboy tackles Burnaboy’s substance statement
Joeboy also tackled his colleague, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burnaboy, over his ‘substance’ statement.
Recall that Burnaboy had in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe stated that Afrobeats artistes make music without substance.
But Joeboy said, “I feel everybody has substance. It’s just based on what people relate to. Sometimes when you make a high-tempo song that is danceable, people feel like you are just vibing.”
Speaking further, The ‘Don’t Call Me Back’ crooner said, “I used to see some comments [on social media] because somebody is singing in plain English; they [fans] would be like, ‘Ah pen game!’ What pen game? Because the lyrics of the song is in English?
He also added, “I understand that you can’t connect to every form of music that you come across. But I promise you, anybody who has the ability or mind to create something out of thin air has substance. You don’t have to like it.”
