Welcome to our episode of ChattingDMC, thanks for welcoming us, can you tell us, whos Polas, or Blazing Polas as your fanz calls you?
Blazing Polas: Polas as a nickname,is the combination of my names which are peter,oluwatosin,lanre,abayomi,stephen. And the word “blazing” is just to show how hot i am as an artiste lol
Wow, so you telling us you everly hot?
Yeah,because anytime i’m in the studio,its always fun having me around
When did you first know you wanted to become an artiste?
Though i started music at a very tender age,but I didn’t know i was going to become an artiste,every part of me loves to listen to instrumental more than a new realesed track,because i get to express myse, lf on the instrumental,and trust me,i love that feeling….
What was the first show you ever did?
My first show was inside mapoly,and it wasnt too bad,because it was my first time on stage and i was nervous too,really nervous
Are you a student of mapoly? Or you from Ogun state?
Yes,i’m from ogun state,but i school in benin republic
What challenges have you had to face in your chosen career?
Most people are not ready to help till you attain success,and because there are alot of artiste in town,its hard with a guy with no label to push himself,really hard
Does your music carry a particular message or is it meant for pure pleasure?
Because i’v not released any message song yet,so for now i can say pleasure
Greatest inspiration? Who/what kept you motivated?
My mood and the type of instrumentals i listen to,and of course i get motivated by the type of songs i listen to
Most of the songs you have released so far have been about gals and parties, as the charming polas, can we say you love gals? Or are you even in a relationship?
Funny you,all the songs about ladies and parties,if you are a fan of that kind of music,you have to love eather one of the two,or even both,as for me,i love parties,and concerning the relationship part,i’m not single.
Are there any new projects you?re working on that you can talk about?
Yes actually i’m dropping a track titled “pretty woman” September first,and its going to be mind blowing,the anticipation as started already,and after the release,radio tour will follow,bigger plans are awaiting,trust me,just watch out for me.
