ItzTega: I and Emperor meet at AIT ghana,he was already into music then and was already working on his mixtape "Grind or Die" the kings edition. We both did freestyles together and decided to come out with something more creative ,letter to the mentors was a collaborative idea from both of us The idea was widely accepted by our management ,the producer and even down to some close friends. Me and Emperor really felt the energy we put into the song, so we started planning on dropping an Ep .
The name of the Ep "The Truth" came about when we took a peek into the entertainment industry and discovered thousands of artist and entertainers most seem to know what they are doing but don't, nowadays anyone can go to a studio and record anything pay a blogger and it's online but "The Truth" is more than that it's an expression of truthful feelings from two prodigies on their way to glory"Nothing but The Truth"


Nairatunes: What should your fans expect from your forthcoming Ep

ItzTega: Firstly the public should expect nothing but the Truth, something true and unique and totally new to the Nigerian entertainment scene. A true expression and story of two prodigies trying to make a difference


Nairatunes: Give a shout out...

ItzTega: S/o to my fans, friends and family who have always supported me since Day one, A special s/o to Emperor, Chibuzor,Mascoboy and Nog_GH for their motivations and support and also A big Shout out to my Mum, the female version of me, for her prayers, advice and support.
Very soon I know I'm gonna tell her "Quit your job your boy is Made"
