What are some of the most memorable moments of your childhood? One of the most memorable moments of my childhood was when my dad came home one day after work, and told me, “Get dressed, we’re going downtown.’’ Little did I know he was taking me to Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, to watch WWE ‘Monday Night Raw,’ live. Considering that you were born in New York, how much of Nigeria did you know while growing up? Growing up, I didn’t know much about Nigeria. Prior to me moving to Nigeria in 2012, I had only traveled to Nigeria twice; when I was three and when I was six. The only thing that resonated with me over the years was the music. My dad played a lot of Nigerian music in the house, and we also attended a Nigerian church. Since you started as a chorister, why didn’t you become a gospel artiste? I was a chorister and an instrumentalist in the choir, I don’t think that classifies me as a gospel artiste. Once I developed a liking for hip hop, I was automatically drawn to it, and that’s when I started creating my own.
Iceberg narrates his sojourn into the entertainment industry all began, especially with aid from his cousins.
How exactly did you get into the entertainment industry? I got into the entertainment industry simply by listening to and following instructions from my cousins. My cousin, Wole Olowokere, aka Bleu, was an intern with the music group, Ruff Ryders, back when DMX was topping charts. He gave me a lot of pointers and advice on how to set myself apart from everyone else, and how to master my craft. Wole’s elder brother, Tunde, aka Buck 3000, was a producer and engineer for Murder Inc. Records when Ja Rule was arguably the biggest artiste in the U.S. He took me around a lot, and I learned so much just from watching and listening to many professionals. I later started to apply the things I picked up, and people eventually started to notice me.
