An emerging singer, Speckinging’s David Ikiedemhe, says he can’t fit into a box when it comes to expressing himself musically.
in an interview Sunday wave, he said: “My sound is light and flexible. It integrates elements from different genres with thoughtful and creative lyrics that speak to the soul, regardless of the circumstances of the person listening. That’s why they call me the ‘lyrical avatar’. It’s safe to classify my music as Afro fusion because I can’t fit into a box.’
The singer also stated that the highlights of her career so far include the release of her second album Extended Play, as well as meeting and working with some of her childhood heroes in the industry. This is even though he said he considered the challenges to be a part of the industry that every artist had to navigate.
He added that he is currently working on the release of his third studio project, as well as securing some local and international collaborations.
Sharing the story behind his stage name, he said: “Basically, Specimen means King. I got the nickname ‘Specimen’ from a biology class when I was in high school. I want to be an example of what good music should be.”
