SINGER and evangelist, Kas Shobayo, popularly known as Kas Beats, is of the view that Christians who can withstand sexual temptations can take part in popular reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.
Speaking in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Kas said, “Big Brother Naija is an entertainment programme but Satan can use entertainment to deceive us from the main goal of our lives. Nigeria is stressed because the leaders are mafias, and people need a way to relieve themselves.
So, they watch Big Brother Naija to get away from the stress of the country. Yes, life is hard but if we can focus the energy we place on BBNaija on prayers and fixing our country by ourselves, without our leaders, I think we would be in a better position. Strong Christians that can withstand sexual temptations can go on Big Brother Naija and use it as a medium to preach God’s word. I would love to go for Big Brother Naija celebrity edition. It would be very entertaining for the people. I would bring ministry in a way they have never seen before.”
Going down memory lane, Kas who recently did a remix of his hit song, Fimile, featuring Samsong and Akpororo, stated that betrayal and disappointment inspired the song. He said, “At that time in 2009 when I produced the song, I was in Egbeda, Lagos. I was going through a lot of stress.
The friends that God used me to help in London betrayed me when I got to Lagos. When I got married, my then mother-in-law did not want me to take my ex-wife home. After the wedding, the mother told her (ex-wife) to sit down and told me to leave. I got married and went home without a wife because her mother controlled her and the entire family. I was depressed.
I remember at that time that I used to go to bus stops in Egbeda and Orile Iganmu (in Lagos). I would stand there and listen to conductors argue. They would say in Yoruba, ‘Fimile jo, owo mi da’ (Leave me alone, where is my money)? I then learnt how to use those slangs.
From there, God gave me the inspiration to make the beat. The beat took me only about 15 minutes to make and then I started using the word, ‘Fimile,’ but I did not know how to pronounce the word ‘esu’ (devil) in Yoruba. So, I just decided to be commercial and use the lyrics, ‘Fimile baby, fimile.’ In the song I was trying to say stress, betrayal and disappointment should leave me alone. Now that I know a bit of Yoruba language and I am an evangelist, I changed the lyrics to ‘Fimile esu, fimile (Leave me alone devil). I also decided to feature Samsong and Akpororo.”
