Abolore Adelore Adigun, popularly called 9ice,in a recent interview talked about why he seems to be losing his voice lately. According to the ”Gongo aso” crooner, the reason for his cracked voice is the poor quality of sound equipment at concerts, and off key plays.
He explained: “Sometimes, you rehearse your songs on a particular key, and when you get there for performance, they play a different key. So with all these, there is the tendency to lose your voice, and even get the voice cracking.”
9ice added that age factor was another cause for his losing his voice. He said: “As of the time I recorded my first album, I was 24 years old, and if you compare that to when someone is 35 years old, you can see the changes in the physical body and every other aspect. Age has a lot to do with that.”
He also complained that some of the concerts he goes to, the sound equipment such as the microphones were not always right, and so, he had to shout at the top of his voice. He said: “Imagine doing that consistently for five years, After the release of Gongo Aso, I was doing shows all over back and forth for almost five years.”
Recently, 9ice signed a management deal with Temple Management Company.
