I Prepared For Fame Before It Came – Sunny Nneji

Veteran singer, Sunny Neji, has said even at the pinnacle of his career, he never allowed fame to get into his head.

Speaking on what he had been up to recently, the Cross River State-born artiste said, “I am currently working on a concert called Timeless that would hold between October and November. We are trying to put up a concert that would challenge lots of artistes to match the quality. It is a way of challenging everybody to work harder. I am sure that the whole country is going to be very proud of it. I have heard a lot of people complain about the quality of songs and concerts out there but I don’t like to get involved in that argument because I believe music is subjective. So, I just pursue what I think should be. We tend to set what we consider the standard.”

On how he was able to ‘keep his head’ even at the peak of stardom, the Oruka singer stated, “People have different reasons for coming into the entertainment industry. For some people, fame just comes without them preparing for it. Some people come in with a specific purpose – they enjoy creating music. I came into the industry because I enjoyed making music; I wasn’t looking for fame. I wanted to make music to touch people. So, when the fame came, it didn’t make any difference to me.”
