Rapper, Remilekun Safaru, known professionally as Reminisce, has said that he wants to seek elective office in future.
Fielding a question in an interview with okayafrica.com, Reminisce, said,” I joined ONErpm in May but I just kept quiet about that. I don’t like to amplify stuff. I also want to seek an elective office sometime in the future and I WILL WIN. Not saying that as an artist but as a person. I will win but that is for later. For now, I’m hoping to do bigger things.”
The rapper also spoke about how he got into acting the role of Makanaki in King of Boys, “I was literally forced into doing it, Kemi Aditiba knew what she wanted. Banky hit me up and introduced me to her, I spoke to her but I wasn’t interested in doing it and for six months she waited for me and sent me the script to read till I agreed. I got on set, did the film and everyone ended up loving the film and my role. My wife came back from the cinema hall and said people loved it.
Kemi encouraged me, she’s been the engineer behind everything. I also realized the movie industry is another bigger and wider platform that I was now exposed to and now if you don’t love my music you’ll love me as an actor. I’ll be doing more quality stuff in films, definitely.”
Reminisce said he learnt music production and engineering during the Coronavirus lockdown.
He added, “I like learning. I started FIFA in February, and right now I’m a fucking G. So I hit up my producer and asked him for a few tips, and learnt the process to record myself. I recorded verses for the DJ Lambo and 9ice features myself and decided to record my project myself.”
