In an interview with Krissy O, he hinted that he is will be working on some collaborations while in Ghana. The ‘Jogodo’ singer disclosed that he is working on a lot of collaborations with some of the big names in Nigeria, Ghana and even international.

Touching on the issue of moving permanently to Nigeria to work with Bespoke Entertainment, Krissy O said it was one of the best decisions he has ever made as they received him very well. “It takes somebody as crazy as I am to be able to move from your country to another man’s country to try and make it with your career. But music doesn’t have boundaries and Bespoke is like a family now. They’ve just taken me in and they are taking care of everything that has to do with me; and it is amazing,” he explained.
“If I got a record label in Ghana who knows, I would have remained in Ghana. But you weigh it and you realize that it is a bigger opportunity for me to go to Nigeria and sign to Bespoke. It’s taking me places”, he added.
He described Bespoke Entertainment as a huge entertainment company with various interests in artist management, events, movies and more. Krissy O hinted that he is the only artist signed on the record label.
