Nigerian rapper Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru better known as Reminisce has said that he has interest in politics and hopes to become a politician someday.
He made this known in an interview with Punch saying “I am interested in politics and I see myself becoming a politician in the future. One is not going to do music forever and I need to plan my life properly. I also love to engage in business, so I see myself doing a lot of that too.”
The rapper also spoke on how he has keep his private life from the media said:
“I always keep my private life private as I believe that I have the right to my privacy. There is a very big difference between Reminisce, the artiste, and Remi, the family man. I thank God because I’m comfortable and I don’t need validation on social media. I don’t have to put everything I own on social media so that people would know that I have arrived. Inasmuch as I’m not begging anybody for food, it’s all good. Instead of flaunting material things, I prefer to invest in people.”
Speaking to aspiring musicians, Reminisce said:
“For anybody who wants to make a career out of music, you have to be sure that you are skilled and that it’s something that you can do sustainably; if not, go to school. Either ways, it is important to go to school, whether you go into full-time music or not. I actually regret not being a graduate.”
