Read the full interview below

Welcome to Hitvibz Celebrity Timeout

Thank you

Can you tell us about yourself?

My name is Stephen E Adah, popularly known as Seaman. I hail from Benue state Nigeria, and i am based in Lagos. I’m a music artist, music producer, songwriter, and a voice actor

When did you join the music industry?

I would say i joined the Music Industry professionally in 2007, but i grew up around music, owing to the fact that my Dad is a veteran musician. Who was the Director of music for the Nigerian Air force.

So i was opportuned to watch a couple of great veteran musicians play music and rehearse right in front of my eyes.

Meaning your dad inspired your passion for music?

Yes he did,

Growing up with a professional musician who studied music in the royal Air Force school of music London is bound to leave you inspired.. [Laughs]

And who has been there supporting you from the beginning?

Well, i had alot of moral support from the family, with little financial support though. Being the last son of a poligamous home left me no accord to financial support to sponsor my music.

From your experience so far, what have you found to be most challenging? And how are you dealing with it?

I think the most challenging thing about the industry for me is getting attention. Getting people to be able to listen to your sound amidst the crowd of music talents.

When you find your self either spending alot of finance into promoting your talent or forced to render music style that you aren’t actually comfortable with, owing to the fact that it’s easier noticed.

For example, a lot of up and coming talents switch to dance/club music because it seems easier to promote than the other Genre’s available to our market in Africa.

Earlier you said you are an artist, producer, songwriter, and a voice actor. How do you blend all these?

It comes easy for me, because i guess i was born to do this, i consult for a couple of advertising agencies in Nigeria, where i come in to write Jingles, sing or i render Voice-overs for advertorials.

So even if I’m not very popular in the industry as such, I’ve been behind the curtain making a living off music for a while.

I also got spot on sometimes around 2008 i guess, when i was called up to be part of Terry tha rapmans BANZ album (Boys are not smiling)

Which famous musicians do you admire and Why?

I admire tuface idibia definitely because he came with a different approach to how Nigerian pop singers write music from time passed, he relates his music to his personal life, and i guess that is why a lot of us can relate with his music. He is very passionate with his delivery.

Have you performed in public before?

Yes, alot

I performed in many big events like Guinness wonderful world of more, Onga campus cooking competition, Zain Campus tour, Glo campus tour, Beatz Awards, BOTY competition to mention a few,

and i have always been confident to leave a mark where ever i perform my music, because i get so much support from the audience and it makes my performance even more electrifying, knowing that people love what i do.

How would you describe your experience so far?

My experience in music has been fabulous, though there were times i almost gave up the passion because it got tough financially at a point. But, i kept grinding the best way i could and stayed focused, and wah lah!!! It gradually started paying off.

I’m proud to say I’ve barely scratched the surface of the industry, but I’m already making my family proud in all aspects of life.

What kind of music do you make and why?

I’m a pop artists that likes to explore music fusions, so every now and then i like to chip in elements from other genres of music into pop, and yes, Pop music cus it is the only Genre i know to give liberty to fuse any type of sound, and I’m versatile, so yes Pop music gives me room to explore my talent musically.

Which part of the country do you feel you have the highest fan base?

I would say Benue state, cus i started my career there, though I’m changing that margin soon to Lagos, because I’ve recently gathered a lot of fans here too.

Which of your songs do you think is fans’ favorite?

It’s titled “Other room” inspired by the Presidents popular remark about his marital affairs.

Do you think the song is capable of taking you far?

Yes i do,

How do you measure your growth? Where were you five year ago, where are you now?

Uhmm, 5 years ago, i was living with my elder brother, managing a studio for a company, and running after people i hoped could sponsor my talents.. But now i bless Jah I’m in a place far better than where i was then.. At least my hustle don de pay me pass. [Laughs]

What plans do you have in place to get to the top?

I’m currently teamed up with ma best friend who’s my manager @ADOLEEJEMBI who also used to be an awesome artist, retired [Laughs].. And we’re using our experiences the good and bad ones to make sure we cut through the hurdles that can impede us from reaching out to the world.

If people dont get tired of listening to good music, then we are sure coming for the number one spot

So far so good, what has been the most embarrassing moment for you on and off stage?

Erhmmm, i think it’s one time i was invited to perform in Nasarawa state polytechnic with a couple of my artist and i had an Hausa track which i felt would appeal to the northern crowd, instead of performing the popular track i had on air at the time that got me the gig, i felt the hausa song would arouse the Northern Audience, feeling Like a boss, i got on stage..

Jumping up and down like Idris Abdulkarim at his prime, bit instead the crowd mopped at me as they struggled to understand what i was performing.

I was so poorly cheered, the MC making things worse now said “clap for am na, na so everybody start o”. Walked down stage with my head so heavy, i felt like the ground should open.

What would you say to young kids who admire your songs and will love to be like you?

I will tell them, stay in school, make sure you develop as much skills as u can that can put money in your pocket, stay humble, and remember to always approach potential sponsors with a proposal, not “Oga help me”… Music is a big business, but not until it starts to pay off, make sure you have something doing.

Apart from music, do you have any other hidden talents?

I draw, and i think i can do well as an actor (at least that’s what my bathroom mirror tells me)

How do you handle messages from female fans?

I dont joke with my female fans, cus what’s a pop artist without the ladies screaming your name [Laughs].. I take their opinions very seriously. I have a lot of sisters, so i know how to relate with females without crossing lines though, i think I’m pretty disciplined.

“Pretty disciplined”? I guess its because you are in a relationship?

I actually love to keep that part private, but yes.. I’m in a relationship

We appreciate your time with us, and we wish you all the best

Thank you very much for having me
