Even In My Absence, No Artiste Has Taken My Place – General Pype
I am a born champion’ is a line off the chorus of one of General Pype’s songs and the singer avers that he is still a king in the music industry even though he has been silent for a while.
While dismissing claims that there are hard feelings between him and Burna Boy and some other artistes who practice his style of music, Pype said, “I’m not contesting with anybody. Even in all my quietness, none of them has been able to beat General Pype’s record. They’ve been going great jobs and I love their vibes but everyone knows I’m the progenitor of that style. It is pointless for me to then think of any of them as rivals because I’ve set my own pace already.”
Speaking on his forthcoming album, he said, “I have plans to release my album soon as it is ready. We’re just contemplating on some final things like the track list and album art. I’m going to be working with a lot of people on this project and I can tell you that my fans would be blown away.”
On what to expect from the album, he said, “I’m going to touch some other genres but they would all have my signature vibes. However, I don’t want to restrict myself to one style alone because sound changes over time. And if one wants to be relevant over the years, you have to flow with the tide.”
