Meanwhile, when contacted, FC the Storyteller had hinted The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide that he is thankful to Veekites Records Limited for signing him, adding that he will put in his best to deliver fully along this regard.
Speaking further, Mutu had particularly stated that his venture into the Ijaw core culte4ao music genre is to revive the distinct pattern of music as it is fast ebbing away, adding that he is optimistic that the Lord Almighty shall give him the needed strength to internationalize his brand of music.
It would be recalled that some Ijaws that were into such Ijaw cultural music include late Birifur, late Kuroindi, late Ball-ere, late Azikiwei Okusuwei and others.
Following their demise, Fc the Storyteller is now the only visible voice in the Ijaw music industry that is carrying on such legacy.
He has also released two albums titled “Akoloko Special and Rebirth of Izon Cultural Beats” to this effect, albums that are very much high in demand from his fans all over Ijaw land and has made him even more popular.
The Liberator can report that FC journey into the music industry can be largely attributed to his exhibition of raw talent during a gathering in an Ijaw community few years ago as he was recorded live by a Facebook practitioner during his display.
Observers are of the view that the live Facebook broadcast changed the music narrative of FC for good as Victor Isereke also quickly keyed into his talent and has promoted the artiste a great deal.
FC the Storyteller has performed in several great Ijaw functions and his performances has been described as overwhelming by Ijaw music pundits.
It would be recalled that his two music albums were produced by Veekites Records.
Some of the tracks include “Abadedobo-ere, Akoloko Special, Boukama, Abeya-bou of Ndoro, Zikana” and others.
