"I have never had issues with my female fans. Without my fans, I will not be where I am today I don't think I have had any weirdest experience with a female fan”.

The musician noted that the major challenge he has faced was getting people to accept his genre of music.

“The challenge I faced at the beginning of my music career was getting people to accept my genre of music. When I started out, my genre wasn’t widely recognized and accepted. Artistes before me were always seen as local and not given their due respect. I thank God that has changed."

Nwamba also mentioned another challenge on his part in making his brand of music. "Finance was also a problem for me because I wasn’t born into riches. I had to build from the scratch without support or backing. I thank God for how far he has brought me”.

“Growing my music to the point of being verified on audiomack is a boost for my music career. I achieved the feat by making music people can vibe to.
