9. Do Your Parents Support What You’re Doing?
You know Nigerian parents now, when u tell them you want to do music , it becomes a bad thing, I think that has happened to many Nigeria and even international acts…but as time goes on, they begin to believe because outsiders preach your gospel. They see music or entertainment as free access to irrationality, Which is not so.

My stage name Is Yomibreezy ,That wasn’t the name I started with tho, I was called breezy2 before I changed it to breezy nd now Yomibreezy..the yomi was extracted from abayomide so I added breezy to it , I love Chris brown when I was very small then, so I got my breezy from there… The name is unique and for me it is outstanding.

19. Are You Under Any Record Label?
Nope, am not under any management for now, but still in talks with ARKCESS ENTERTAINMENTS
20. As an upcoming act, what’s your perception about the Nigerian music industry?
The Nigerian music industry is one that is open to contemporary style of music, you have to work very hard to get to d top, its preoccupied with the notion that, you cant make money unless you are big acts, which is not suppose to be so, u don’t get recognized not until u get to a certain level…its not all music that can sell in the Nigeria music industry..I think the music industry is fertile and one of the recognized in the world…
21. What would constitute success for you as a musician?
Success might be viewed or seen differently by individuals. To me, success is when u start doing it big, when ur music start yielding profit, making money with good songs, because at the end of the day, the end thereof doing music literally is to make money and fame…success to me is achieving your dreams while helping others achieve theirs …
22. What has been your greatest challenge?
Challenges are much o. 
I remembered how I gathered money to record my first single, because there was nobody to do it for me, Recording songs that has been one of my big challenges, most times you have that inspiration to do a good song and on getting to the studio you are asked to pay session fee and no money, and the inspiration dies ..Another challenge is shows, DJ is another problem, getting your songs on radio another wahala, DJ stops playing your music even before you finish performing… Everything boils down to money , promoting your song is another challenge, you spend a lot promoting good music..
23. Three years from now, where do you see yourself?
I see my self going for shows outside Nigeria, I see myself on billboards , I see myself on newspapers and entertainment magazines , I see myself in big places, I see my self getting huge endorsements.
