Skiibii Says He Doesn’t Reach Out To Artistes For Collaborations

Skiibii Says He Doesn’t Reach Out To Artistes For Collabor


Popular singer Abbey Toyyib Elias, famously known as Skiibii, has unveiled an interesting facet of his approach to music collaborations.

The ‘Sensima’ hitmaker disclosed that he has never initiated collaborations with fellow artistes, and it’s his colleagues who often reach out to him for joint projects.

Skiibii shared this insight during an appearance on Hip TV’s ‘Trending’, a program hosted by reality star Kim Oprah.

“I don’t call other artistes to do collaboration. It’s not my style. From Olamide, he wanted a collaboration with me.

"He asked for us to do a song together, and I obliged. The song with Olamide was my first music video to garner one million views on YouTube", he shared. 

Elaborating on his collaborations with Reekado Banks and Kizz Daniel, Skiibii emphasised the significance of having a pre-existing relationship with his collaborators.

“My collaboration with Reekado Banks was because we were friends. We’ve got to have a relationship between us before we work. I don’t just work with anybody.

“So, I and Reeky were very close friends. We did ‘Sensima’. Before that one, we already did a song together titled ‘London.’

The singer also highlighted his collaboration with Kizz Daniel, noting that they are close friends, a fact well-known in the industry.

Skiibii’s revelation extended to international artists, as he shared how Canadian rapper Tory Lanez expressed interest in collaborating with him.

He stressed that Lanez initiated the contact, solidifying his approach to collaborations, where he tends to let the opportunities come to him.

Skiibii mentioned how Davido reached out to him via Instagram, expressing a desire to work together on the remix of Skiibii’s song ‘Baddest Boy’.

Skiibii's approach to collaborations offers a unique perspective on the dynamics of the music industry, with the artist's talent and track record attracting collaborations from both domestic and international stars.
