Interview with Kojo Manuel on Disco Diaries on Y1079fm, Dblack stated that loyalty is a very important thing to him and that is what most upcoming artist need to have.
He noted, “The smallest thing anybody does for you, never leave it and never throw it back in their face. Don’t let anyone regret helping you no matter how small or big. Appreciate the smallest thing. I still talk to the first person that put on air here on YFM almost every month.
Waxy, the first person that gave me the opportunity to record music in the studio without asking me for money is the same person that mixes my songs till today. For ten years. Even tomorrow, I’ll go see him because i owe him a Christmas present. Don’t ever the smallest thing that people do for you.”
He added, “The lifespan of artistes in the industry is very short. You can’t do this for the rest of your life. Six or seven years and you’re gone. Only a few people make it people, nine or ten years so appreciate the little help that you get because you don’t know when you’re going to meet those people again.”
He then clarified that talking about it every time does not mean you haven’t forgotten but showing appreciation, being it verbal or physical.
