Hype men deserve more than they earn — Emmy Blaq
A hype man, Emmanuel Chima, aka Emmy Blaq has said that Nigerian hype men deserve more than they are currently earning.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said, “Hype men are underrated in the industry, and I think we deserve more than what we presently earn.”
On how the hype industry can be improved, he said, “The hype industry needs proper awareness and promotions. Artistes and corporate organisations should collaborate with us. We also add value in our way.”
Asked about the lessons he had learnt in the course of his career, the hype man said, “Being a hype man helps to refresh the mind, as well as my emotional well-being. I am fulfilled and I feel I express myself through this craft. In the course of my career, I have learnt to be conscious of delivering excellently. I love to give my fans the best and keep them entertained.”
On the traits he appreciates in women, he said, “What do I look out for in a woman? I explained my preference in my song, Wife Material. She has to be decent and virtuous.”
