What government should do for musicians —Kene Okafor

After her first single, One chance, which was released in 2010, up and coming singer, Kenechukwu Okafor, is leaving no stone unturned in her quest to make her way to the top in the Nigerian music industry.


The lawyer turned singer has said what she feels the government can do to encourage Nigerian artistes especially up and coming artistes. In a chat with the singer on her musical career and the way forward with the Nigerian music industry, she said, “We have a history of music. My uncle who lives in America is an artiste. His name is Charleston Okafor. My dad used to be in choir and a couple of us in the family sing. I guess it took root from there. I started music in the 2005; but I have been off and on I took a break from 2012-2013 to practice law.

I got into music professionally in 2010 but between 2005 and 2010, I was a still schooling but because of the flair I have for music, I was combining that with my studies. But in 2010 I released my first single titled ‘One Chance’ which was on air briefly before I took another break to go to law school. After law I went into practice to garner some requisite experience in the profession.”
