At some point in the music industry, Panshak Zamani, aka Ice Prince, enjoyed his own share of success producing hit songs like Oleku and Aboki, but for a while now, the rapper seems to have lost his magic that once charmed a large number of music lovers.
While several people had said Ice Prince’s Career was a mess on social media, none drove the message home like the one that got Olamide upset.
The tweet read;
“Olamide will soon become an up-and-coming artiste like Ice Prince.”
While Olamide replied with so much pain and frustration, Ice Prince remained quiet on the issue until a recent interview with newsmen. Ice Prince told the reporter that “Only God Decides How Popular A Song Would Become”
He stated, “My duty is to create music, but how far the music goes is not for me to decide. God did what He did for Ice Prince and He did what He did for the Nigerian music industry. Music evolves and if God blesses an artiste to make a song that has a huge impact, such a person shouldn’t claim he is responsible for the glory. It is God, not the artiste.
“I don’t know if you will ask 2Baba when he will release another African Queen or you will ask 9ice when he will make another Gongo Aso. Will you ask Olu Maintain when he is dropping another Yahooze. I made Oleku, and I have also done other great songs.”
Ice Prince admitted that his song, Oleku, was his breakthrough single in the music industry. According to him, before Oleku, he won the Hennessy Artistry Competition in 2009 and he was already doing well.
