So you planned from the onset to be an artist or why did you study theatre Arts?

Yes, it was my passion from day one

Rotor Concepts

So how did you end up in the music industry?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

I was into modelling while in school, then  acting and singing were all in the same category

Rotor Concepts

Let’s talk about your journey into the music world…

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

My passion to become an artist started the night I was asked to be a back-up singer for an artist. It was an artist who came from the US to record a track. From there I started doing back-ups and appearing in artists’ videos. I was in Felix liberty’s video, Alex o’s video and some more. I also appeared in a lot of Tabansi artist’s videos. I recorded my first demo, but I had to abandon it because of lack of funds

Rotor Concepts

So how long have you been in the industry now?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Well, I left industry for 12 years and just started again 2 years ago

Rotor Concepts

Rotor Concepts

Are any of the videos to your singles out?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Yes, the video to Should I is out now. It’s on YouTube and TV stations are showing it regularly

Rotor Concepts

What genre does your music fall under?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Pop and a bit of highlife

Rotor Concepts

Your singles are doing very well in the UK and Dublin. Where do you get your inspiration from and how do you intend to break into the Nigerian market?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

My inspiration comes from God and life experiences and with hard work I will surely break into Nigerian market

Rotor Concepts

Do you have any role models in the music world and who would you like to work with both locally and internationally?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

My role models are people with good music. I would love to do collaboration with Flavour, I did one already with Solid Star. Davido won’t be a bad idea too and Internationally, I don’t mind my girl Rihanna

Rotor Concepts

Let us digress a bit. What is your best food?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Moi Moi…I’m not a food person, but I can eat Moi Moi every day and if you want me to be even happier, give me goat meat. Those are my favourites

Rotor Concepts

Is Angel Tee married?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Angel Tee is very single for now

Rotor Concepts

But we understand  you are in a coded relationship with Solid star. Are you no longer dating?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

(Laughs) I wonder where they get that from, he is just a good friend. We have never dated and will never date. We just do music together

Rotor Concepts

Where did the news come from then, people must have seen something or what do you think?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

I believe that bloggers just want to spice up their blogs by writing rumours that aren’t true but sound believable. Solid Star and I are really close friends so I can understand why they would mistake it for an intimate relationship.

Rotor Concepts

How did Solid Star react to it?
Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Well he’s used to rumours like that so we just laugh over it.

Rotor Concepts

Do you think that may affect your working together in the future?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

I don’t think so because as an artist, you have to be prepared for any kind of rumour and you should not allow it affect your career so, we are still going work together?

Rotor Concepts

If you must date a Nigerian celebrity, who would that be?
Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Hmmm, I have never thought of that so, no comment but I have one footballer in mind…but can’t reveal it yet

Rotor Concepts

Can I take a guess?
Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Ok go ahead

Rotor Concepts

Mikel Obi?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

Hahaha you are a witch; he’s not bad but he is too young

Rotor Concepts

What is your take sex before marriage?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

It depends on what one actually wants. It’s good to date before rushing into marriage and if people decide to practice sex before marriage it’s their choice. I have nothing against sex before marriage.

Rotor Concepts

How do you cope with male fans?

Angel Tina Ekpunobi

I treat them like friends

Rotor Concepts
