Music star, Adigun Abolore, better known as 9ice has publicly declared his intention of going into politics. The news which came a few days ago has been raising dust, but the singer has revealed that he is leaving music for politics for a good reason.
According to him, he feels he has achieved all he wanted in music and needed to go in for other challenges, which lie in politics.
The Ogbomosho, Oyo State star hopes to represent his hometown constituency at the National Assembly in 2015, when the next general election takes place.
In recent times, the music career of 9ice, 34, has been on the low side. He has struggled to regain the top spot he used to control some years ago when he released hit single, Gongo Aso.
The first major break for 9ice came when he released his first single, Little Money. He later released another hit single, Ganja Man in March 2006. His biggest hit ever has been Gongo Aso.
9ice won the Revelation of the Year award and the Best Male Vocal Performer at the Hip Hop World Awards held in Nigeria in 2008. A month later at the first SoundCity Music Video Awards, 9ice was nominated in the category of Best New Artiste. He is the founder of Alapomeji Records.
