Ghanaian Dancehall musician, Theophilus Nii Arday popularly known in Showbiz as Epixode, has revealed that he almost gave up doing music for good last year.
According to him, not was working for him so he almost gave up.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Epixode said:
“When nothing is working for you in the music business, you feel like just giving up on something you love best and that was the state I got to last year.”
Epixode also revealed that even though his other passion, painting, made him more money, he can not give music up entirely for it.
“I do paintings, which pays a lot but my first love is the music and that is why I cannot stop it. I went to Ghanata College of Arts where I had my first Degree in Arts and continued to NIIT where I did Digital Arts but I am not using those certificates because of the passion I have for music,” he added.
Epixode also explained it was his mum Jennifer, a former member of music group Wulomei who told him not to give up because his hard work will one day pay off.
“My mum is my greatest inspiration because she did a lot when she was with Wulomei. Going through that difficult, she was the only one I could take inspiration from. She helps me write most of my lyrics and encourages me to always do positive music,” he said.
Epixode has released songs like “Body Body” ft Mr Eazi, “Dem Bad”, “Avatar”, “My Resolution” and “Dear Mama”. He recently dropped a new album titled “Trinity”.
