Nigeri­an rap­per Kash­money The Force and Thaa Real­ist join forces to drop a new col­lab­or­at­ive pro­ject ‘Judas’. We catch up with him to find out more about the Glob­al influ­ence of Afric­an music, future plans, and their brand new album.

How did the col­lab­or­a­tion between Kash­money The Force and Thaa Real­ist take place? How did you both meet?

Well, I have known Thaa Realest since 2015 cus we are from the same hood. After I returned to Niger­ia from China and offi­cially star­ted my career, a few months later, I noticed a post from someone on Face­book about him and I was wowed to know that he is still doing rap music. So I chat­ted him up, and the next day he came to my crib and we star­ted vibing. From a track we decided to make an album cus the vibe was too lit. That’s how the Col­lab­or­a­tion occurred.

Tell us about the music scene in Nigeria? 

Music in Niger­ia is at its peak with the likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, Dav­ido, Rema inter­na­tion­ally put­ting afro music and Niger­ia on the world map.

Do you find that a lot of the Glob­al Afric­an Dia­spora are now embra­cing artists from their home coun­tries more?

Of course, the Globe is recog­nising and appre­ci­at­ing home coun­tries music.

Tell us about your new album ‘Judas’?

Well, Judas’ album is about life exper­i­ences from day to day. Betray­al, back­stabbing and les­sons with motiv­a­tion­al, inspir­ing and edu­ca­tion­al contents.

The album focuses on friend­ships and betray­al, what les­sons do you want listen­ers to take away from it?

I want them to learn that not all friends are actu­ally friends and not every­one that smiles and dines with you actu­ally wants to see you suc­ceed or do bet­ter than them.

Learn how to keep their circle small and stay focused on the grind cus TIME IS MONEY.

There are a lot of les­sons to learn from the album depend­ing on their understanding.

Are there any tracks on the album that are per­son­al favorites?

My favor­ite tracks are; Time na money, Fake friends, Togeth­er­ness and Who dey Check but TIME NA MONEY is my most favorite.

Do you have more pro­jects planned as a duo?

Not yet, maybe in the future as the spir­it leads but I have my per­son­al album com­ing soon, 80% done.
