Am going on a break to focus more on other things…….. Says the singer last night in a conversation with BRL MUZIK PR Adamu Sarari. HKON has been inactive for the past 6months with no commercial record released, he also stated that he’s label is going through reshufflement and that makes it hard to drop a new record for now. Last week Hkon recorded a dope song and to me it’s something he really had never done before cos it’s really crazy man the style, I mean the whole thing is just perfect. HKON plans to drop the song in mid January after sealing a distribution deal with Hit Concept Kano to give him the flexibility to bleed to other territories. No one is really happy about this hiatus thing but that’s what it is, we just gotta keep on supporting him…..

@iamhkon The Painful Sacrifices of Fame and Money

20131220-125408.jpg

Easy? It’s not easy. Don’t say the word easy, cos it might seem easy from the outside looking at it, I mean u gotta think like u know its more of a sacrifice and its unfortunate. Everywhere we go u know we don’t get the chance to enjoy it. We in and we leave the next day.

Believe it or not its constant work. All ds we doing now so we can enjoy it later

What is this big thing everybody is searching for when it comes to being an artist or becoming a superstar? Like what part of it is it that everybody enjoy so much. Of course in the spotlight there’s alotta more things like normally focus on u know and ya privacy is thrown out the window. You don’t get time to spend with your family as much as you would like to. It’s definately alotta work that people really think its simple and easy, I mean u don’t have a life really, and when you sleep you actually dreaming figuring out ways on how to advance you know u don’t just get a free moment for yourself.
Just understand the person standing before you today is not the one from yesterday.
