by his stage name, Lynxxx says he sang shallow songs in the past to please fans and satisfy a demanding music industry.

In a recent interview with BBC Focus on Africa, Lynxxx said that he was not fulfilled with the music he was previously doing.

He said :

“I was unfulfilled with what I was
doing content wise, the market
wanted the same pool of subject
matter which was money, alcohol
and women. It gets boring
especially for somebody like me
that has a background of
knowledge.
“It was as if I was limiting myself
like I was giving only five percent
of what I know to my audience. I
decided to take a break to make
sure I know why I am doing
music and work on music that I
personally believe in because
music is art and nobody should
tell me what to paint”,

When asked if his fans or the industry was responsible for not getting the creative space he wanted, Lynxxx said:

It’s a bit of both because I
experimented with songs that
were out of the norm and those
songs were not as received as
the shallow records.
“I think that at that point, that
was what the listeners were
looking to hear and right now, the
industry is ready for real music
because they have played that for
so long that it has worn itself
out.”“I still make hip hop, the
difference is that the shallowness
and immorality has been taken
out. So you are not going to see
a music video from me where
you have women shaking
whatever. It’s not that there
won’t be women but it’s going to
be classier.”
