The host asked, “People kind of categorise you into gospel. Are you a gospel musician?”

Dakolo replied, “I am not, by any chance. I always say to people, ‘Is there a gospel banker or architect?’ It is you that decided that is what you want to do. Art is art.

“I am just an artist. In fact, I am not an artist; I am a creator of art. You can box my music into a particular genre. I am much more than a wedding singer. ‘Great Nation’ and ‘Wish Me Well’ are not wedding songs. If listen to my new album, you are going to hear that [my diversity]. ‘Men Of The South’ is a song about cultural pride.”
