Fans criticising my music want me to cook – BBNaija Whitemoney



In this interview with Olamide Famuwagun, BB9ja reality TV star, Hazel Onou, popularly called Whitemoney, reveals why he focused on his strength instead of schooling; his undying passion for doing music, and how he has been unrelentingly saddling his music career against overbearing criticisms from the Nigerian music audience..

How will you measure fans’ reception towards your music career choice after the show?

Hmm, Fans will always be fans. Some have been so amazing, engaging and supportive while some have been shouting and ranting about it. The truth is that my choice or choices is between me, myself and God. So, yes, it’s accepted.

Why do you think people were surprised when you decided to go into music?

This is because everyone (fans) wants me to cook, they don’t want me to sing or rather they didn’t know I will take music seriously but I’m chasing my passion and what I love. I don’t want to be the guy that gets old and regrets not doing what he loves. I’m just doing me and I’m happy.

Fans have criticised your music; they’ve compared you to other ex-winners of the BB9ja reality TV show that are doing music, because of these criticisms, have you at any point had doubts about your music career?

People need to understand that we are different with different unique sounds. I have never had doubt in myself or my career because one day, I will win the Grammy. You can’t get it right at once or all the time. That’s why constructive criticism is part of the process. But when it’s not, I ignore it because the more you criticize, the more God blesses me and I cash out.

Amid the criticisms, what has been your biggest motivation? What kept you going?

My biggest motivation is the Holy Spirit. I believe one day my sound will be fully accepted.
