Recently, we had a conversation with fast rising musician “Fortuno”. The conversation centered majorly on his recent single “Mo Abudu” which has been buzzing with several comments from fans – attacking him. A lot of people are curious as to why he released a song titled “Mo Abudu”, this had a lot of tongues waxing.
Here are some comments;
These and more flooded social media few hours after the song was released.
Here is our Conversation with Fortuno;
Fortuno, how are you doing today?
I’m good !!! Good good!!
You recently released a new single “Mo Abudu” what inspired that?
Honestly, nothing really, I just finished making the beat that hot afternoon and I was ready to vibe to it, the first thing that came outta my mouth was “call mo Abudu uhu, tell her say me I like her too”.
Wow! Are you saying it was not planned?
Hahaha planned? No ! I didn’t even know what “Mo Abudu” looked like at the time, it was after I caught the vibe I checked her biography
So, what is your relationshipwith Mo Abudu right now?
Hmmmm, no relationship whatsoever! It is just a song.
Did the attacks from fans scare you at somePoint?
No no no! Not at all, I’ve got nothing to be scared of, I wish they channel same energy to sharing the song till Mo gets to listen.
What is the song “Mo Abudu” about, what’s the message?
Message? Hmmm ! I don’t know how to answer that really, but i’ll say It’s just a song trying to let people know that age is nothing but number when there is love.
How have you been taking the comments, the attacks, Abuses, Allegations?
All that is like normal, it doesn’t get to me at all, people said a lot of stuff though but I, I decided not to reply all that cause it’s nothing to me.
What do you have to say finally about the song?
Mo Abudu owes me money, publicity money because many people who didn’t know her, know her now! hahaha Jokes, well; just know what ever anyone said about I & Mo is a rumor, and I hope this is clear now!
It all started when I announced I was releasing a song titled “Mo Abudu”, everyone was buzzing me on social media, because they thought I had something with Mo, it became worse when blogs took advantage of the buzz saying “We are sparking a relationship rumor” and shit, that’s what made it really crazy! Well, I’m not mad at the comments, it’s all love!

Social media has been on fire since popular blogs and media houses sparked dating rumors betweeen fast rising act “Fortuno” and CEO of ebony life tv/Ebonylife Place “Mo Abudu”. Tv stations, radio stations, blogs and social media has been on fire since the fast rising act shared a photo on his Instagram with the caption “Mo Abudu omo mi, mo Abudu Omo mummy” which translates to Mo Abudu being his mummy and his baby! The 22 year old act shared this below;
This sent a picture to the media but the picture became clearer after 52 year old “Mo Abudu” checked the post out;
That is how it all started until Fortuno announced and released new single for her titled “Mo Abudu” which tore social media into pieces as fans accuse and abuse Fortuno
Well; Fortuno is yet to comment on this saga but we promise to bring you more update as soon as we get some.
Super star Rema is not taking it kindly with fans who are steadily comparing his E.P to Fortuno‘s Stars And Scars E.P, in recent interview Fortuno declared he cares less about these comparisons as he is only making music to make himself happy, well Rema on the other hand is not taking it kindly as he blasts fans for comparing him to Fortuno
Read our interview with Fortuno Here & listen to his E.P, tell us what you think?
Today We are chatting with the buzzing young Nigerian talent for an exclusive interview around his new E.P project STARS AND SCARS , fame, self-doubts and beliefs. In just one EP, Fortuno has established himself as a special new talent. His first release in 2015 was a smash hit & went by the title “Kill Somebody” which was followed up by a Young John produced song titled “Loveena”.
Here is what Fortuno has to say to our questions?
What motivated your E.P title, Stars And Scars?
The stuff I was going through at the time motivated Stars And Scars because in real sense; “every star has a scar”.
On your Stars And Scars E.P, which is your favorite track? Hmmmm, all tracks are my favorite.
In your long run in music, which would you say is your best moment? I will say shooting my first music video at age 16 was like the best moment for me and The love and support the people showed me was amazing, The love I get in the streets, people cheering my name and appreciating my presence is as a result of that first video i shot at age 16, it’s amazing.
Some fans compared your Stars And Scars E.P to Rema’s E.P, do you think its right? Well, People are entitled to their opinions, I believe that I’m unique, I produced, mixed and mastered my E.P all by myself in my bedroom. I believe that I’m called for something beyond the human imagination so I care less about these comparisons.
Star And Scars E.P has different sounds, you trapped, you rapped, you sang. What inspired all that? At the time I made this E.P I was going through a lot, at the time I was learning how to make music myself, I’m not saying I’m good at it yet I’m still learning… While I was learning, it felt like the whole world was against me, a lot went through my mind and I really wanted to turn those thoughts to music so I started recording…
First of all; I will like to explain every track. “Lonely World” as the title implies is a song that explains a mood, I was “lonely” at the time, friends and fans were no where to be found while I went through the hardest times of my life… “I No Believe” was recorded cause at the time I felt alone my best Friend and I had a couple issues and the song explained everything… I thought about how I was lowkey popping and everyone wanted a piece of me, it resulted to a song, once you get Job, everybody wan “Chop“… And offcourse I felt hated so I sang “ They Hate Me”.
Do you feel any pressure as to the kind of music to make? Hahaha No pressure at all, though i usedto be pressured but that was then, now i make music to make myself happy and if it makes you happy too then good for us… I work hard in creating my sound and I have faith in it, it might not be perfect but it is what it is
Who are the artists that motivate you and influence you? I listen to a wide range of music though, especially from up and coming artists. I listen to a lot of Maleek Berry, though I’m mad at him, don’t ask me why. I listen to Wiz, when i was a kid, Psquare was my favourite, well; There’s no particular person I draw influence from.
Have you ever had doubts in your sound? Omo this one eh, normally I make music freely with no doubts whatsoever but every song I ever released usually arise to positive and negative comments but to me music is not that serious, so! No doubts at all.
Between Wizkid and Davido who would you rather feature? I love and respect their influence in the game but no! I don’t have plans for no features whatsoever.
Fortuno, your music is filled with rhymes. How do you come about all that Well, it starts with a sentence, when I’m composing music and I have the first sentence, the next must rhyme and that’s how I create.
What are we expecting from you 2020, any new E.P? Ok, expect great things, More sounds, but don’t expect an E.P, I might not release an E.P again till 2025.
Fortuno, how do you combine recording your music, producing the beats and mixing/mastering for final consumption?
Its no stress for me, it is what I love. When I’m making beats I mostly start with my melodies, it is easier for me to write on melodies… After recording, mixing and mastering is a fun process, I just play around till my music sounds better, though I like originality, so I don’t do too much.
Aside music, what would you rather do?
If I wasn’t making music I don’t know what I’ll be doing cause while growing up I always wanted to make music but it sounded weird to my dad especially, so when they asked me; I told them I wanted to become a banker, hahaha funny cause I wanted to become a banker because of one of my family friends who usedto give me clean naira notes whenever he came around, one day I asked him; “uncle what do you do for a living?” He said “I am a banker” oh wow so this banking job pays ? I thought, in my mind I had adopted the idea of becoming a banker…
Describe yourself in one word?
Summarize by saying anything you feel right now.
OK, uhmm God bless you guys for sticking with me during my stars and scars. Stars And Scars is a free playlist I curated for you and you can get it on YouTube, SoundCloud, audiomack or softcontinentent.com Bye!
