Presh: Singer's absence from music was for self development

Presh's return to music after a long absence will see him introduce an elevated style different from what fans are used to.

Presh has described his departure from the Nigerian music scene as necessary steps he needed to take in order to improve his craft.

From going on tour in some European countries to returning to school where he was mentored on voice grooming, the singer believes he has what it takes to dominate his genre.


He told Punch News' Saturday Beats that he has elevated his style and added some sort of uniqueness to it.

“I have been away from the Nigerian music scene because I needed to step back and rediscover myself.

"There were other factors I also needed to consider and put into perspective. Back then, I did not have a sponsor.

"What I had could have helped my career but along the line, it would slow things down so I needed to do some shows and go on tours. I travelled to countries like Italy, Belgium, Norway, Switzerland, Malaysia and the United Kingdom for my tour.

"I also went to school to polish myself. I was tutored on voice grooming so that I can be good with a live band.

“When I finished the tours, there was enough money to do what I had in mind. I am also coming as a solo artiste and even though people know I sing, it is only in their subconscious.

"I needed to know how to go about being a solo artiste so that I would not keep doing what everybody was doing.

"Even though I would want to do some commercial songs, they have to be above standard. There are things that people expect from me.”
