Timaya still sees me as a threat – Oritse Femi
« on: December 27, 2013, 07:05:41 am »
Oritsefemi Majemite,simply known as Oritse Femi took the music scene by storm when he released his hit tracks “Mercies of the Lord” and “Oleju” which enjoyed massive airplay and an evergreen status in the hearts of music lovers. Though he plays gospel,  there is so much of dance-hall infusion into it that it cannot be ignored by a wide spectrum of the society. In this encounter with WG, the Delta State-born Itsekiri Femi, born and bred in Ajegunle, bares all on his journey from the shanty settlements of Ajegunle to the limelight. Excerpts:
How have you been surviving ?
It’s hardwork and most especially, you must be prolific and realise you must change as your environment changes. Presently, Afro Hip-hop rules the music industry. For instance, if you are a Fuji musician, Reggae star or a rapper, you must infuse Afro into it because it is what rules the scene now. This Afro is generated from Fela Anikulapo Kuti. If you listen to Fela Music, he usually sings with our local pidgin English which they call commercial. So, you must infuse that commercial and Hip-hop in it. So, I keep including that in my music.

*Oritse Femi
But the most important thing is your own uniqueness. I try to rediscover my unique selling point so that anywhere I go, it will serve as my identity. And one of my most unique traits is my vocal, the way I sing and whenever I sing, people understand and identify that this is Oritsefemi. Meanwhile, I try my best and take my time to put out very unique lyrics. So, I infuse all these into my music and it has been working for me.
I make sure the content is beyond reasoning. Another thing that we, Ajegunle boys,  lack is publicity. Our guys have the mindset that they won’t play their music on radio but I keep asking them to try nonetheless. The industry is now highly competitive  so you have to promote your songs. I always try my possible best to meet up with that competition. So, that’s why I’m still relevant.
If you hadn’t hit the limelight would you have still remained in Ajegunle full time?
I will move to anywhere in the world. Like I said earlier on, the world is like a circle you must learn how to move around but ‘Aje’ is still my hood and I still have a belief in it.
What inspired ‘Mercies of Da Lord’ ?
I was born and brought up in the ways of the Lord but because of worldly things, I derailed. But my mum, who is highly religious and Godly, brought it back. There was a low time in my life when I felt so depressed but my mum with her inspiration woke the spirit of God back in me. I was so filled with the spirit to the extent I never thought possible.
So, that was how the inspiration came out. Actually, that song was the last song I did in my album, I was supposed to round up my album, I’ve already rounded up the album; I just need an intro into the album. But when the producer, Ben Droze heard the intro, he said what I just dropped can be a track, so we now completed it, making it a full track.
How was it like working with Pasuma ?
Yes ! Pasuma is a nice and humble artiste. When I walked up to him that I have a song and I would like him to feature in the song. Immediately I gave him a clue of the song, he said the song would be a hit. I swear that was what he said, so he put his own impact. We went to Clarence Peter’s Studio around his house.
Suspect was the engineer; I now brought my own producer which is M-Shine to come and produce the beats while Suspect took the vocal and because that place is so close to Pasuma’s place then, he came in to do his own part. After we finished the job, it was so smooth and fantastic. It was like a dream come through. Up till now, the song is still relevant because I still perform it on stage and I see people’s response to it.
Your memorable experience?
I think it was when I was in a group called, The Jingolist.  We released two albums. It was a joint project with my colleague, Chibudo. The first album was entitled, ‘Boys Dibinu’, that is, “Boys are not happy”. The second album was ‘Money Na Time’ and they had eight tracks each. Later I went solo and released an album, ‘Elewon’, which means “Chase them”.
That was when I started singing about the flopped politicians and the need to chase them away.
