Interview with Bb

We know that in Nigeria there are not many women who are making popular music and it's even more rare to see a woman making rap music. Well, here is Bb a rap artist who is holding her own in the male dominated world of rap music. She gave us an interview about her music and her hair. You can also listen to her music on facebook.

Now here is her interview with O'Naturals. Enjoy:

Real Name and Stage Name:

Anthonia Abisoye Olurin aka Bb

What do you do? (Are you in music full time now or do you do other stuff?).

Wow, I like to think of my self as an all round entertainer. It’s first the music, then stage, writing, presenting, mc-ing; it could be exhausting

How long have you been locked?

About two and a bit years now

Why did you decide to loc your hair?

I always wanted to but never got round to while I was in University cause I didn’t want unnecessary attention (the Nigerian factor) but once I was done, I braved it and got my locks in.

Your style

My style is comfortable and o so natural so my hair ‘werks’ for me. I sincerely don’t have a clue about extensions and all, they confuse me. I hate sitting in the salon for long and when I still had my hair permed, the salon was a whole days affair. My locks are natural. No disrespect but I really am not for those who spend their yearly paychecks on extensions.

Maintaining your locs

Wash it myself (lol) but I do have a stylist who pays special attention to it and puts a lot of work into my hair. I am not ashamed to say this but I actually get my hair done once a month. Shhh don’t tell o!

Product recommendations, salon recommendations or just hair advice.

Well when it comes to product advice like I said I’m clueless asides shea butter.

When it comes to the locks, it’s a whole new game entirely. It could be quite expensive but it’s worth it. Sadly, we live in a society that leans towards myopia. If you’ve got the locks you are thought to be weird and irresponsible. I reckon you have to be really brave and keep being brave to have the locks, and anytime you are tempted to stick a pair of scissors in there, remember:

1. It’s taken you a looong time to get where you are now

2. They really secretly want to be like you

3. You haven’t had to wonder where your tail comb is for a while now and

4. You know when you look into the mirror it looks so good.

Did you always want to be a musician?

Nope, I knew I love music but I never thought I’d end up on stage holding the mic doing Rap music.

Describe your journey into the music industry?

Accidental but I guess it was meant to be

Describe your music

Crazy, funny, natural, me.


God mostly. Then people and things around me.

When it comes to your music what do you hope people will get from it?

In everything I do I realize I always want to make people smile. I hope I am able to make people happy and think deeply with any form of art that comes from me.

Why does it seem like in this country there are so few women who are into music full time?

Meen have you tried being a female in the industry? It’s hard! But I realize now after so many years that you need God’s favour, if you don’t have that? *shakes head*

On following your dreams?

Just a liner “To thine own self be true” .I wouldn’t want to wake up in 30 years and keep wondering ‘what if I had done that’?, would you?

Anything else you would like to add?

Eeerm? Buy my Album Iyalode? lol
