” My album MY STORY, will be released on October 29th and officially launched on November 14th, 2015, but firstly let me play some tracks for you, you know olorisupergal.com is very special to me and it will be the first blogger to hear it, nobody in Nigeria media has ever heard this album, so I am playing this for olorisupergal.com (plays track 8, The Way featuring Mafikizolo and Ice Prince from his i-phone), the reason why I featured Mafikizolo and Ice Prince is because I was trying to think of an outside connect collaboration, you know that voice and that artist that is so much respected across the continent, so I chose Mafikizolo and they really put in work and then in terms of a rapper that is so much respected all over Africa, you know I have been to most parts of the continent and I have sampled people’s opinions and the name Ice Prince has always been mentioned and aside people’s opinions, Ice Prince is very talented, he is someone that can come up with up to 7 tracks in a day so I so much respect his talent, and again for Mafikizolo, I discovered that apart from P-Square who has recorded more successes on the continent, Mafikizolo also stands tall and the fact that they are a male and female really makes me look at it like I am having a male and female and then a talented rapper rapper which will be awesome. I co-produced the track, I decided how the beat should go and also did some scratches on it which is really cool (continues playing Track 8), what really inspired making this album was what inspired how I wanted to make music, you know I have been in the game for close to 10 years now, I have toured different parts of the world and I have hears sounds in different ways, so I wanted a sound that if you play it in Ghana they will love it, in South Africa they will welcome it, so that’s what the album is all about, its strictly African sound, for Africa, by Africans, the idea of MY STORY is from the experiences I gathered from where I have been and things I have heard, all the songs on the album from the lyrics to the beat happens to be some of the things I have experienced, like Track 2 Oluwa is about me showing gratitude to God for my success so far, Track 3 Money where I feature 2face and Wande Coal talks about the importance of money, like at this stage of my life money is very important, I need money to make music, pay bills, shoot videos, everything basically, another track is ‘Tan Mo’ that is ‘who knows it’, you know people think they know it all, they criticize you like they know everything about you but they don’t even know much, there is ‘Fimile‘ which is about street credibility, so my album, MY STORY is all about me. I have other tracks like ‘Attendance‘ where I featured Olamide, ‘Excuse Me’, ‘Baby’, ‘My Heart’, ‘Shout Out‘ featuring Wande Coal, I wrote and co-wrote a couple of other tracks and I was basically involved in the production from track 1 to the end. And if you noticed in the album, I didnt try to put stars alone, it is not about A-list stars alone, its about establishing a clear yunderstanding of certain artist’s talent, for instance, I have Rayce on it, in my opinion I feel like Rayce is one of the most talented artists on the continent but somehow the spotlight is not really focusing on him as much as it should. I can’t really tell it all about the album except you hear it then you will understand everything I am saying. I know it is dope not because it is mine but because I have put it out to about 26 critics and no single one of them has condemned it. So once again, the album will be released on October 29th and it will be available on I-tunes, Spinlet and a couple of other online retail stores, its been well structured for easy access to people, just search for DJ SPINALL on I-tunes or any pf the online retail stores, you will find it. And then there will be an album listening party on November 14th, it will be massive and an announcement will go out very soon on the details.”
On his best track on the album, Dj Spinall said ” my favorite album is Track 1 to Track 16″
