More from bio...

Colin: What was the preference in choosing Chris Brown's Loyal as the base track for Awon Temi Loyal?

Martel B: I chose this base track because I actually liked the beat. I felt the production of the track spoke volumes on how tracks should be produced worldwide. The creativity and organisation of the track was nothing short of perfection.

Is it a direct translation of Original Chris Brown?

I would say yes and no. YES, because the original track gave me a melody to work with and also I believe that it's everyone who is disloyal in which I emphasized in the track... and No because I had my own ideas for the base track.

A wide section of your fans agree you've got the right ingredient mix to "hit it" at the top and surpass what would be your oncoming competition big names in this industry... I could not agree more simply going by your stage name! DJ Edu of BBC Radio 1Xtra is quoted "Martel B oozes Star quality!" What's in store for your audience? Where do you envision the brand name Martel B 5 years from now?

Lol... I am really flattered and humbled by the positive response from my fans. I believe my fans should expect greatness musically... nothing but hits to come over the next coming months.

As far as the Martel B brand goes. I hope by the grace of God it will be a very well acceptable brand worldwide with lots respectable hits behind it.

You're currently based in the UK... Do you think you'd 'nail it' more in the UK or is there a plan to relocate your permanent base to Nigeria?

Nigeria is my home and will always be. I am always travelling between Nigeria and UK... So although I am based in the UK I honestly don't know as of yet any plans to relocate and my dream is to 'nail it' worldwide not just the UK and Nigeria.

Your highly anticipated EP Limited Edition!! Expectations? Release date?

The EP consists of 6 tracks and its set to cater for my fans and all kinds of music lovers with different genres. I believe they should expect versatility, good music and production and of course hits. I can't give out a specific date at the moment but would be soon.

Limited Edition pre-cursor Badda Dan Dem! What's it all about?

Lol... I am just making music which I love to do. I live and breathe music so the 'badda dan dem' pre-cursor just means that I am in my own lane and I am badda dan dem at it.

Which big names in the industry have you worked with so far?

I have worked with the likes of Tillaman and so on but don't wanna give out a lot because they are on my unreleased singles coming out so expect the unexpected.

I we'll stay tuned... Thank you so much for the interview...

To my fans... I LOVE YOU and stay true to your dreams.
