I wasn’t evicted from my old house- CDQ reveals
Weeks back social media was awash with a viral video in which Sodiq Yusuf a.k.a CDQ was captured allegedly moving out of his Lekki apartment.
It was widely reported that the ‘Indomie’ rapper was evicted from the apartment because he couldn’t pay his rent.
However in a chat with TheNewsGuru, CDQ who recently released his sophomore album, ‘Ibile Mugabe’ noted that he wasn’t evicted.
Hear him:” They didn’t get their facts right. The video shared on the platform was the video of my new apartment that I was setting up. I wasn’t chased out of my old house. You know where I was staying before power supply wasn’t constant and my producer kept complaining about the generator noise when I was recording my album. So I decided to move to a better facility that has 24-hours light and other things I need”.
Speaking about the inspiration behind his new album, ‘Ibile Mugabe’, CDQ said:”As we all know Ibile means roots in Yoruba and everything that has to do with Mugabe connotes stubbornness. It takes a measure of stubbornness to be successful that is the inspiration behind the album title”.
Asked If he thinks hip-hop has taken a back seat in Nigeria, he said: ”Everything artiste has a right to their own opinion. As you all know CDQ is versatile. If you give me an RnB beat, I will still rap on it. I sang the chorus of a track on my album. Everyone has a right to their own opinion”.
