Following the release of his last album, fans of 9ice criticised the singer for the dwindling state of his singing voice, which seems to now sound vastly different from his Gongo Aso debut of 2007/2008.

In a recent interview with Not Just Ok, the singer turned politician blames his “bad voice” on old age…9ice is just 35 years old, so I’m not sure what he means by that…LOL

He also added that no one should expect his voice to be the same after 3 years of “screaming”, he also blamed the poor quality of music equipment for the loss of his golden voice.

Since when did 35 become old?

Besides people like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Onyeka Onwenu are twice his age and their voices sound just as good as when they were in their prime 50 years ago. I advise 9ice to take better care of his instrument – which is his voice, hire a vocal coach. Usher still works with a vocal coach and he’s been in the game for almost 20 years!
