Introduce yourself to us

My name is Emmanuel Kalu, popularly known as E Marshal, I’m an artiste signed unto Destic World Entertainment based here in Lagos. I started my music career in Aba, Abia State, I later moved to Abuja and was later called to come over to Lagos.

How long have you been singing?

I have been singing for about 6 years now because my first recording was in 2011 in Aba, Abia State.

How has the journey been so far?

The journey so far has been a bit rough, but the most important thing is that we have been moving forward gradually.

Tell us little about your record label

Destic World Entertainment is an entertainment company, we are into everything that entertainment with office at Lekki. We shoot music videos, rent out cameras and other equipments for events and many other things.

Can you tell us little about your back ground?

Well I’m a boy that came from a very low back ground, I was nobody but God through his grace and music is making me somebody because as it is today people are getting to know who E marshal is and so I no longer see myself as nobody.

Your record label seems to be doing well for you as they get you to feature a big artiste, Harrysong, how did you get them to sign you?

I met my record label through my manager Obi Wilson, he introduced me to Destic World Entertainment, before then I was in Abuja but he called me to down here from there he got me signed to the record label.

Like how many songs did you have in your name before you got signed to your record label?

Well officially I have not dropped any song before I got signed but I can boldly tell you that right there in Aba where I started from I was well known, I was very popular there because I was also doing stuffs there though I have not officially released any track but I was well known and respected as an artiste.

In your first official single you featured Harrysong, how did you do that because a host other artistes will wish to be like you?

Actually that was not my first single, my first official single was titled One Call and the video was shut right here in Lagos, Banana Island to be précised. This particular song which featured Harrysong is my second song. I think the credit of me featuring Harrysong must go to my management team and record label because they made all the moves and arrangement that made it possible.

What are the challenges you have encountered getting to this level of your career?

Honestly the journey so have been tough and rough but at the same time we have been moving forward gradually because the hustle is real in this industry, it’s more like a jungle where it is the survival of the fittest. For example because you are not that known like artistes like Wizkid or Davido some people will want to trample on you, it has happened to me on several occasions. Number one is that you won’t be recognized and at the same time some people will want to frustrate you, not that they don’t know or ever heard of you but they just want to deliberately  suppress  you and make you feel like you are nothing. Take for example one I  was invited and confirmed for that event but missed the opportunity of performing because of this same issue. On getting there the bouncers were like ‘who is this one, go back go back’ and stuffs like that, then we started calling the organizers of the event and in that kind of an event the organizers are always busy, so at the end of the day I ended up not performing because of the actions of some people, that is after standing outside for about 4 hours, it was so frustrating.

The profession you are in has a lot to do with girls, how do you cope with them?

Girls will always be around because they are part of this business, they are a very critical part of this industry but for me no girl at the moment because I really don’t want anything that will distract me from my music career now. Girls are all over the place but it takes wisdom to not allow them to distract you.

What do you have to say to other upcoming artistes like you who have not gotten the same opportunity as you?

This journey is not an easy journey but I must be sincere to you, I held on to God to this stage, I have been doing a lot, I pray a lot, me and my manager we pray like our whole lives depended on it and that is how it’s supposed to be any way. So I have come to understand that it’s not all about knowing how to sing or having a good content, No, it’s grace and grace can only come from God. God showeth mercy to whom he wants to show mercy to. So my only advise to any upcoming artiste out there looking for opportunity is to hold on to God. That is the number thing, another one is how loyal and associating you are. So simply put, hold on to God and be loyal.

What actually motivated you to go into music?

Actually I started out as a dancer when was very little like 5 years old. It all started when I go to an event with uncle and if I dance people will give me money from there I started going for dancing competition and people will spray me money and I will go home with a lot of money then, from there I started writing songs for my cousin and some other people and at the same time I was also in my church music group, so from there I was like since I can do this let me go into it fully. So it’s not like I just woke up one morning and started singing, I started with dancing, writing songs for other people before venturing into music.

How long have you been singing?

I have been singing for about 6 years now because my first recording was in 2011 in Aba, Abia State.

Harrysong unveils new Twitter account ‘@iamharrysong’ aftermath hackers devil work

Image result for HarrysongAlterplate Music Company Boss and lead artiste, Harrison Tare Okiri,  Harrysong it still in the euphoria of the new song he did with @iambangalee, D’Banj ft @wandecoal that is enjoying airplay.

However, he has cried out over his Twitter account that was hacked.

Harrysong was for months shut out of his account, @iammrsongz by dare devil hackers after several attempts to defraud him proved abortive.

The singer’s twitter account was earlier in the year hacked and recovered a month after.  Shortly after the account was restored, it was hacked again, hence the decision to abandon it completely for a new one becomes the sensible move.

Harrysong has launched a new twitter handle, @iamharrysong and wishes to inform his fans to connect with him via the new medium.

Iterating that all his other social media handles remain the same, Harrysong also seizes this opportunity to register his unreserved appreciation to his teaming fans for their undying love and standing by him even in the most challenging times.

“I and my Alterplate team shall be releasing some new materials pretty soon and I am convinced you’ll all love them. In the interim, my collaboration with D’Banj titled “It’s not a lie” is out, go check it out and feel free to share your thoughts with me via my social media handles
