FOCUS: MEET THE LIBERIAN/NIGERIAN AFROPOP ARTISTE CENTCEE

With the difficulty that came with adjusting to the fact that CentCee is a full Liberian and was born and raised in Liberia we had to dive into his early life and background to be fully convinced.

Emmanuel (Born Dec16) 1998 at the St. JOSEPH Catholic Hospital MONROVIA, Liberia Better known by his stage name Cent Cee is a Liberian/Nigerian song writer, singer and Performer whose Genre of song is Best known For Afro Pop which he uses to infuse Liberian content On Afro-Pop Sounds and Pattern.

WHEN DID YOU START MUSIC?

Music has always been a part of me and I fell in love with music at a very tender age. I released my first single titled JeJe in 2018 which gained airplay in Nigerian terrestrial radio stations.

Fast forward to 2004 CentCee with his family relocated to Nigeria to seek refuge and also attended early school in Nigeria. CentCee lived in Nigeria all his life and presently attends the University Of Lagos where he’s studying Creative Arts because of his love for arts and Music.

CentCee is just an independent artist pushing himself and opened to work with any management team or Label.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE LIBERIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY WHAT WOULD IT BE?

If am giving the opportunity to go in the Liberian industry I will try to change the language barrier to be generally accepted by both Liberian and other continents because I have noticed my fellow colleagues in the industry have good sounds but most times it’s hard for outsiders to relate with what they are saying so that’s why am trying to infuse Nigerian sound pattern on Liberian contents. And I will also like to change how outsiders view Liberia that’s why I make sure in my videos to showcase the beautiful part of Liberia to let other continents know too we have what it takes to be the best.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF 5 YEARS FROM NOW?

In the next five years I see my self representing Liberia internationally as one of the best afropop singers in Africa.

TELL ME HOW YOU CAME UP WITH YOUR UPCOMING SONG BASSA BABY ?

Hmmmmmmm BASA baby is not my first single
I have other songs like {Liberian BamBi,Tina etc} But Bassa baby is a song I used to disclose the beauty in Liberian ladies Using the ladies from Bassa Tribe as a case study because it is generally known that Bassa girls likes to explore . So in the song BASSA BABY I did not only disclose the beauty of Liberian women but also the beautiful meals we Liberian have and to let the world know we are also proud of our meal.

CentCee is set to release audio and visual for his new single featuring Pascal titled Bassa Baby and the song is being produced by DukeBlac. We definitely can’t wait to hear this beautiful piece by CentCee.
