What Motivated you to start music?
Bella Shmurda: I used to have a case of Inferiority complex while growing up and the only way to express myself was through music. It was through singing and that was the major motivation for me as I want to be a strong-willed person. And that made me.
What influenced the name “Bella Shmurda?”
Bella Shmurda: I like Bobby Shmurda and the GS9, so I coined Shmurda from there. My name is ‘Abiola’ so I coined Bella from there and made it “Bella Shmurda”.
When Bobby Shmurda was released from Prison did you see the social media trend that was clamouring for collaboration between Bobby Shmurda and Bella Shmurda?
Bella Shmurda: Yeah, I saw it. Shout out to Davido. He was the one supporting that. I’m going to the U.S soon so that is probably happening. We’re working on it, it’s in process.
Who was your major influence when growing up?
Bella Shmurda: While growing up I listened to African Contemporary music. The likes of King Wasiu Ade Marshall, the likes of Pasuma 1, we have the juju music; King Sunny Ade too. Also, Baddosneh (Olamide), Oritse Femi, Wizkid. These people are major influences, sources of inspiration. They are mentors and people you can look up to. They do this afrobeat thing perfectly. I am a successor as they are the predecessors to this thing.
Who do you owe your first big break?
Bella Shmurda: Shout out to all LASUITES, that’s my school. Shout Pocolee that’s my brother, shout out to Baddosneh, these people made Bella Shmurda, these people were the influence, these people were my people.
