We just try to pass a message
And make impact that’s all
Back to your personal life, do your parents know you sing?

You can’t hide such things

Modex: zaria *Laughs* mehn I love zaria but my dreams are bigger than zaria
I have not even pushed my self well in zaria sef. But yea i gat some few love here and there but i dnt grind for zaria my hustle is beyond here
Dupe: So you plan on going beyond Zaria?
Modex: *Laughs* common only a cursed a man plans to remain small

What was your most embarrassing moment
Modex: *laughs* embarrassing moments mehn i am not sure i can remember any Atm but they were bad
Think of one
Modex: *laughs* I can’t think of one now maybe later
Had any challenges in music yet?
Modex: Music itself is a challenge
Your next song must be better than previous one, you have to get better
For now the main challenge is getting the songs out there
Dupe: Hmmm. What about encouragements. Like have there been times when you were glad you’re into music. Things that motivated you to want to continue?
Modex: If you’re into music because of encouragement, you will be disappointed. I do music because i love it. I do get a lot of good remarks but i don’t let get into my head cause you will just become proud and do stupid things. Plus i am always glad i do music
Dupe: Hmmm nice. How do you balance school work and studio work?
Modex: Read at night record in the morning *laughs* Just set a time table for yourself that’s all
Dupe: And it’s been working for you?
Modex: It works for us all

So who are the people you look up to in the music industry?
Modex: In America its j cole in Nigeria its vector
Dupe: What about them interests you?
Modex: Their style of rapping. Jcole is dope story teller, i mean he can tell a story with his raps vividly and vector is dope with word plays he can tell word plays and you will not understand till a month later
Dupe: * laughs 😂😂*
Dupe: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Modex: I see myself big but thats for God to decide
I am only human, i can work towards my goal but only God can make it happen
We hope you’ll not call us “famzers” when you’re big
