NIGERIA'S GOSPEL ARTIST "DK" TALKS ABOUT HIS MUSIC, PASSION AND HOW HE GETS INSPIRATION


I met DK some years ago, and from the first day i met him, i knew Nigerians haven't seen the best of gospel music yet.

DK as he is fondly called has a kind of intimidating and contagious passion for good music. He is intelligent and has a great sense of humor.

Gloriafinesblog, caught up with him,just in time when his single is about dropping.

Enjoy our chat below...
>Can we meet you?
My name is Ediri O. Dick, popularly known as "DK".

>Who is Dk?
Dk is a very passionate musician, multi-talented  Instrumentalist, singer/song writer music arranger, potential producer
And God Chaser.

>How did you venture into music?
From the nostalgia euphoria as a kid "children choir" of which, I was named d Director "just for the Fun of it" LOL! and after playing around a handful of instruments as a teen, i finally found&fell in love with the Drum set; of which, i was nick named "DK DRUMs" because i was a Drum enthusiast and Played it for years in several bands nation wide. Still playing... Followed by the Keyboard, Bass Guitar... Doing all of these also gave me the opportunity to properly honey writing/composing/arranging/singing knacks and music generally.

>Is this your first single?
 No.

>What is "NO ONE ELSE" all about?
 It is purely worship, just as it is written. You know, God speaking in Isaiah 45:5 " i am d Lord, and there is no other; apart from me, there is no God" and Jesus in the new testament said " it is written you shall worship the Lord thy God..." matt. 4:10.  The song expresses our worship as a function of knowledge knowing well that, NO ONE ELSE, NO BEING, NOTHING deserves our worship nor praise irrespective of their status in Life.

>What should your fans expect from you?
 Expect genuine unadulterated music with good content by God's Oil

>Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
As a household name in the music industry, both  local and international *ByGod'sOil*

>In your opinion is the music industry over-crowded?
Not really because the best is yet to come " the beautiful ones aren't born yet". The world hasn't heard "DK" and some others. There is enough parameter for "birds of the same species to fly in the sky" without congestion. That is the beauty of art... This industry is fuelled by creativity, and you can't put a limit to people's creativity. Hence, the industry is fresh to all and still very much vacant. Perception is Key.

>How do you get Inspiration?
The scripture said "all things (negative/positive) work together for good to them that love God and called according to His purpose". 
So, every MOMENT is an inspiration to me. Ultimately, i believe there are specific DIVINE  inspiration that comes from God; one of which is "NO ONE ELSE". The inspiration came during kirk worship

>Do you write your songs yourself?
Yes.
DK with a Gospel artist 
>What is your most embarrassing moment?no
Moments where outcomes doesn't commensurate inputs. I don't wanna stress this further, because Musicians know better what that means.

 >How do you unwind?
Hmmm..just lay back and listen to *some kind* of music lol 😀! chat freak, comedy freak

Do you have a favourite food?
 Yes oh! Hmmmm! ogbono soup(anything vegetable & Okro) / Eba. Then, I eat plantain a lot in any form but "I am not that plantain boy sha oh! Lol

>If you were to change anything about yourself, what would that be? may be my completion and height. But seriously, i love  the way i am.

>Do you have any regret in life?
NO! Like i said earlier, " all things work together for my good, He's(God) INTENTIONAL because I AM CALLED AND I AM WORKING IN ACCORDANCE TO HIS PURPOSE.

>Aside music what other thing do you do?
When I am not doing music, I am reading or I am sourcing for information in any form.

>Have you had any embarrassing moment with a fan?
No oh! I don't pray for it and God won't allow it...

>When are we expecting your album?
By God's oil, three / four months from now my much anticipated official album would have been ready to be launched. So, y'all get ready for me. Y'all know what that means.

>What is your greatest challenge?
Making a good music that could not penetrate or that had no platforms where the song(s) could be blessing to God's people.

>Do you have any academical background?
 Yes! I have a Diploma in Banking and Finance from the university of Benin (UNIBEN) and bachelor of science in Banking and Finance too from Delta State University (DELSU). Masters in view

>what is your philosophy of Life?
Honesty and truth for posterity
