    This dude can sing, I’ve been following him since he won project fame and I am a huge fan, but please someone should tell him this new stupid fake American accent he has picked up doesn’t suit him at all. Abegi keep your Naija accent! That’s why I like genevieve, as big as she is she doesn’t do all this fake American/British accent

    Oh, he can sing, he tried. So, tired of these auto tune crap taking over the Naija industry. Btw, Rendezvous is my favorite song by Craig David, second by I’m walking away. I miss him, we need the real R&B back.

    Hmmm….OK, as someone who never got to watch Project Fame or whatever, this is my first time hearing this guy use his vocals, and all I can say is don’t waste it boo. I watched your interview with Toolz and heard why you switched to songs like Kukere. I understand it. But you can have songs like that as your singles or to draw attention to your album, but I hope you won’t abandon the traditional R&B route and waste this beautiful voice.

    @Janet, again, I don’t know the guy from Adam, but what is fake about his accent? I basing this entirely on the interview with Toolz cos that’s the only time I’ve seen or heard him talk. He just spoke eloquently. Of cos he didn’t sound like he grew up in the villa, or doesn’t have some strong Calabar accent, but he also didn’t sound like someone experimenting with phonetics. And trust me, I’ve heard a lot of bad phonetics even from people living in the U.S. Even Genevieve’s accentuation has changed a bit since her early days of acting. She doesn’t sound ‘razz,’ but she also isn’t over the top. I strongly disagree with anyone who’s expecting our guys to sound ratchet like D’banj (who apparently didn’t sound anything as razz as he does now when he was in Navy Abeokuta) or even Tuface, mispronouncing words on purpose so you can identify with your local area boys and sound more “Nigerian.” Last time I checked, most of us were raised speaking English as a first language in educated households.
