Fast-rising singer who dubs his style of music as Afro-Cruise, Ambakederemo Evans Oghenekaro better known as Evih has explained the importance of women to his music and how they influence it. In a recent interview, the Tycoon Entertainment signee refuses to label women as objects of sexual pleasure.
According to him, “Women are amazing, we all love them, our mothers, sisters, girlfriends, wives, they are all amazing and they deserve all the love they are getting. We can’t underestimate the importance of women in our lives, it’s beyond seeing them as sexual objects, they have a way of adding spice to life.”
Evih features OBO, Davido in one of the songs “Wonder” remix in his debut EP “Cruise” which he released on June 11, 2020, describing the ‘Assurance” crooner as a superb professional who knows his onions. But when the question of who the best artist is among the trio of Davido, Wizkid and Burna Boy, the singer played it close to his chest.
“They are all GOATS (Greatest Of All Times) and I fuck with each one of them. No comparison, they’ve inspired me to chase my dreams with or without support. And the reason you got to compare them is because of consistency. They paid their dues. They all GOATS. Zero comparison. Much love to them all. But we coming heheheh. The cruise is out.
