How did you come about your stage name?
I prayed to God for a revelation a day to my birthday, when I wake up the second day I saw a name on the sky boldly written as Mat Tosin. That was how the name came about.
What inspired you to venture into music
My mother use to tell me you will be a singer I don’t believe until a prophet tell me the same thing
Tell us about your family background
I am from a poor family, I was not born with money but I decided in my heart that I must make it. I chose to do music and succeed at it. God has been directing my career himself so far.
What has been your greatest challenge as a Nigerian musician
One of them is that I have beat a lot of hurdles even though there is hardly any money to record my music. There is no support, no sponsor, but I believe I will make very soon.
Which top artiste would you like to feature and why
I would like to feature both Adekunle Gold and Kiss Daniel because the both of them has been two of my greatest artistes. Adekunle Gold also doubles as my role model because he does not sing like every normal mainstream musician. He is original and stayed true to his roots.I have a new project coming s0on and you need to watch out.
Where do you see yourself 2 years from now?
In two years I plan to make significant progress and take my place in the midst of worldwide established artistes. By that time I would have long transcended the “upcoming artiste” phase.
