Mavin Records act Gbekile David Osemeke aka Boy Spyce has revealed that he writes his songs months before he records them.
According to him on City 105.1 fm, whenever he writes a song, he sings it to himself, practices and perfects it before recording.
“I’m more of a songwriter,” he said.
“I don’t think I’ve written a song and I record it that moment.
"Any time I write a song, I record it months after I write it.
"I sing it to myself, I practice it. I perfect it
“I have studio sessions this week and every song I will record this week, I’ve written them since last year. I even make my own beats sometimes.
“So, I’m just going there to record everything. The song is already part of me.”
When asked if he can write a song on the spot, the singer said he can but that’s not how he operates.
According to him, songs will outlive their creators so it is better for artistes to take time in the process of creating music as no one is rushing them.
“I can. But that’s not what I do. I feel like; why are you rushing? Who is rushing you?
“Your music is going to live after you are gone.
"Who is rushing you, really? Are you going to drop 100 songs in a year?
“Put in the work, write, go back, cancel, do what you have to do. Then record your song.
“There are sometimes that you will be in that spot where you need to create something on the spot. I can do that too.
“If I have my way, I’ll like to take my time to write my songs. It took me three months to write ‘Dreams’.”
