Nigerian pop singer Praiz can be considered as one of the finest artistes in the country in the soul-blues genre and he has been responsible for a lot of love songs, which turned out to be hits. But ironically, the singer has not been able to find love.
Praiz revealed that his last relationship left him heartbroken and that was what motivated him to release the record, ‘Folashade,’ which earned him a Headies award. And he has decided to remain single since then.
“Folashade was inspired by my last relationship; I like to write songs based on true life experiences so that a lot of people would be able to relate with the songs. On the day I recorded the song, I was very heartbroken so when I got into the studio, I started making the beat.
I produced the song myself. I poured out words that I felt came to me based on the mood I was at the time and when I was done with the song, everyone said it was a nice idea. When it was released, everyone loved it because it was different and I am happy the song got its due acknowledgment. But the girl’s name was not Folashade,”
The singer noted that recently he has been feeling lonely, encouraging any lady who is interested in him to ‘shoot their shot’ as he would love to have a girlfriend soon:
“At the moment, I am single, so ladies who are interested in me should try their luck, they should ‘shoot their shots’ because to be honest, there are times when I get lonely, there are times I just want to know I have a girlfriend. So whoever is interested should apply within,” the singer said.
The Rich and Famous singer told Saturday Beats that his parents have begun to mount pressure on him about marriage but he always tries his best to avoid such conversations
