‘Coming To Lagos’ Rapper Cona’stone Covers Simple Magazine October Digital Issue
Everyone loves the good ol’ tale of the rejected stone becoming the chief cornerstone. That was the aura as 16 Mountains Records’ front-line act; ConA’Stone covered the October digital issue of SIMPLE magazine.
Born, Babalola Oriyomi, his music adventure bears great semblance to that ageless saying, even evidenced by his choice of stage name; ConA’Stone (a stylized version of Cornerstone.)
The code-mixing-code-switching emcee paints a fresco of his early struggles; overcoming mountains of criticism right from his sojourn in Jos all the way to Lagos in a faithful body of music work “Coming To Lagos”.
Speaking with Rayo Kasali, The “Me Corner, Me Stone!” crooner talked about music, faith, travail, and triumph with vigor and the assuredness weaving through lows and highs and why ‘his’ rejected stone has now become the Chief cornerstone.
