With her debut single yet to go public, rapper Amarachi Jane Ibe aka JanexMara is drawing attention to herself after posting a clip of her studio session on Facebook and Instagram.
With hip-hop lovers tagging her the future of the industry because of her style and punches, JanexMara is looking forward to matching people’s expectations, saying that she doesn’t really care about the hypes because she knows it will come.
“Attention is normal, but all I want to do is educate, entertain and inspire with my music”, she said.
“People are now comparing me with other artistes; I heard someone call me Nigerian Cardi B, but that’s not the issue, I’ve been rapping before she became a hit and this is my style and original stuff. I’m so surprise about the Cardi B stuffs because while I was in secondary school, my class mates called me Nicki Minaj during freestyle sessions”
“This is what I have always wanted to do and getting this opportunity now is something I am never going to blow away”
Admitting that it will be challenging to knock off other artistes to go top, JanexMara said knowing that females have succeeded as rappers is even a motivation than challenge.
“I appreciate other ladies who have been doing this before me, but I guess they have to open the door for me to come in because I deserve it. They have motivated me and it is time for me to do same to others”
“I believe in my abilities and I thank God that I’m working with a group of people who believe in me especially my parents and management. They all trust me to do this and there is no stopping till I get there”, she said.
As her debut single is set to drop, the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State born artiste believes she has what it takes to be the best rapper in Nigeria and beyond, but revealed that one thing that’s also important to her is getting tertiary education.
“I want to go to school and that’s what I will be achieving alongside greatness in music. I want to be schooling while running music and by then I should be international”, she said ahead of her debut single ‘Like That’ which is produced by Yung Roc.
