QUESTION 1 – Can you introduce your self?
Ans – My name is Cotterell Atonopriya. In a family of four, I’m #3. I’m a Christian. I’m an indigene of rivers state. Right now I’m an Artiste and a final year student in the department of Economics at Bowen university.
QUESTION 2 – What unique quality or qualities do you think you can bring to the table ?
Ans – Everyone was born original, there’s no point dying as a copy. its hard to describe the uniqueness of who I am or what I do in words. It’s easier to witness it. My music is peculiar in itself, from my vocals to the non-conventional perspectives from which I write on different subjects.Apart from the fact that I play different genres, I believe my sound is easy to identify in the crowd of many artistes today.
QUESTION 3 – You are a creative person, with interests in entertainment ,music or fashion who was the first artiste to make a big impression on you?
Ans – the first artiste would definitely be Akon. This was mainly as a result of my elder brother’s influence. He was such a huge fan, he got me to recognize and appreciate the uniqueness of Akon’s sound and music generally.
QUESTION 4 – Who was the last ariste to make a big impression on you?
Ans – The last artiste has to be John Drille. That’s because he reminded me that even with the most unconventional sound, you can still make impact in the Nigerian Music Industry.
QUESTION 5 – You are young and New to music industry. what has been the biggest surprise so far?
Ans – Given how much I’ve grown lately as an artiste, the biggest surprise would have to be the realization of how little I can do by myself, I’ve always liked to be in absolute control of my music career; from the song writing, to the production, promotion, show bookings, and so on. However I’ve come to realize that my full involvement in every aspect of my craft would not only be inefficient but be exhausting for me. So now I’ve got an amazing team with me and I let them do what they specialize in.
QUESTION 6 – Who motivates you?
Ans – God
QUESTION 7 – Who distract you ?
Ans – Myself ,sometimes
QUESTION 8 – Who is under-appreciated ?
QUESTION 9 – What is the best experience you had in entertainment industry ?
Ans – it’s really hard to pick one… it’s been a very eventful journey so far.
QUESTION 10 – What project are you working on now next?
Right now I’m preparing for my “Positive Vibes” concert coming up on the 7th of April. I’ll also be putting out new music very soon.
