I would have been a footballer —Solidstar

Still basking in the euphoria of his new album, Weed, which was released a few weeks ago, Nigerian singer and songwriter, Solidstar has opened up on his love for football even as he added that he would have been a great footballer but for his love for music. “I would have been a footballer if the love of music was not a bit higher than the love for football.”

Solidstar who began his music career as a drummer for a local church in his hometown in Delta State, disclosed this on Friday during the promo tour of his new album, which has been rated by music lovers as one of the best albums so far this year.

According to Solidstar, football was one thing that he truly loved when he was growing up, saying that he could not pursue it further because of his passion for music. “Music took the better part of me though I was a good footballer. I still remain the lover of the game but for now, it is music all the way.”

Speaking on his new album, the Achievas Entertainment artiste revealed that the WEED album, which is acronym for ‘Witness Everything Exceptionally Different’ featured top Nigerian hip hop acts and had about 21 tracks.
