NIGERIAN Disc Jockey, producer, songwriter Oluseye Sodamola aka DJ Spinall has opened up on the making of his new album ‘Top Boy.
In a recent chat with Apple Music’s Dadaboy Ehiz, DJ Spinall analysed the making of his new album, ‘Top Boy’ as well as the reason for naming it Top Boy.
On the name of the album, DJ Spinall said, “So what even is a top boy? A top boy is anyone who has beaten the odds and used the resources made available to them to get from point A to point B.
“That’s who I am, and I feel like all the people that I have on the project as well. They’re genuinely passionate about music and they just give the best with the little resources they have. A lot of them are not signed to any majors… They’re doing this with a little at their disposal, and that’s what a top boy is,” he said.
DJ Spinall said, “This album is different to a lot of the albums I’ve put out in the past. This album really resonated with me on so many terms – from producing most of the tracks to co-writing, to flying here and there to find somebody – it was really really that album that asked me do you really want to do this or not? I’m glad that we’re able to answer this question after three years. It was a lot of lessons, a lot of blessings in the making. I really still wanted to put way more people on the project, honestly, but I think I’m very satisfied with where we are on the final cut of the album.”
