CitytrendTV: Rian, how you doing?
Rian: I’m doing good, moving..
CitytrendTV: So for those who are not familiar with you yet, tell us..who Rian really is?
Rian: ‘Lil R!an’ is an artiste, a different one with a different type of music. I make Emo Rap and Trap music.
CitytrendTV: from your name, you’re Nigerian right?
Rian: Yes I am, I’m from Nigeria
CitytrendTV: But you sound alot like Americans, how’s that? Influenced?
Rian: Lmaoo actually i don’t even know if I’ll call it a gift but I’ve never been to America before so It’s an influence something I grew up with, I grew up watching a lot of American movies, music I was just so in love with the American Culture.
CitytrendTV: okay. We took some time to listen to your songs before this interview…and to be honest, they are really good…How did you get all this inspiration?
Rian: I just make music from my heart, I make music that speaks to me, I stopped caring if it’s a hit song it you know a banger… I let the beat direct what I sing so whatever comes out, comes out.
CitytrendTV: let’s dive a little into your origin…where’s the superstar Rian from? Was it a big influence in you as an artiste?
Rian: I’m from Osun state but I grew up in Lagos, Where I lived didn’t really influence my music.
CitytrendTV: now, let’s talk about that amazing body of work titled CANCER. What’s the story behind it?
Rian: Huh actually I didn’t really know we was gonna drop something like that until me n my manager just decided. I make songs everyday that my manager gets tired lol, I send him at least 2 songs every day so he choose the ones he likes, There are a lot of dope songs that should have been in Cancer but you know we just had to pick. I’m a July Born so you know we’re called Cancers. 69 is also a number I saw that kept appearing… I just know it wasn’t just a coincidence.
CitytrendTV: is that your debut? Tell us more…
Rian: no actually Transition is but I gained like a hunnid fans from Cancer, I’m still growing and I’m not satisfied…
CitytrendTV: personally we at GS love the EP. It’s a body of emotions that makes us more interested in Rap… Was that your motive?
Rian: Yes, I’ve always admired uniqueness, I just want to be different, a lot of people said it’s gonna be hard for me because of where I’m from but I don’t care I just wanna do something I love and fans from it
CitytrendTV: Now that CANCER is out and the fans are loving it. What next do you have coming?
Rian: We haven’t decided yet, and school is part of the reasons we haven’t. It’s been tough on me but I’ll survive and also lack of studio, I have to make savings to make music but we’ll figure something out for the fans. We love them so we won’t let them down lol
CitytrendTV: oh really?
CitytrendTV: sounds exciting. All been said and done, what else would you like to tell your fans? Wait, do they have a name yet?
Rian: We’re still going through that but we haven’t decided yet, but I think I’ll run a poll on that so we’ll know those that are for us… lol
CitytrendTV: it’s been nice having you. Conclusively, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Rian: Well, First off, school will be out of it, my focus is just to get better and better at what I do… I get scared I might loose it sometimes I overthink a lot lol… we’re still building a plan so we’ll follow through after.
CitytrendTV: wow, that’s beautiful. It’s been a pleasure having you. Thank you for coming through.
