The multiple award winning rapper in an interview with YFM’s Caroline Sampson on Shouts On Y talked about his past relationship, new music with Kelvin Black and his eminent AMG Concert and album.
Caroline Sampson: Why were you in tears in that photo that surfaced on social media recently?
Criss: My dog died and I loved the dog so much. Strange thing is before that I didn’t like dogs, it was someone that I liked so much that introduced me to dogs.
Caroline Sampson: Is it the same person you singing about in your new song? Oh Yvonne Okoro? She likes dogs too… I think I can make the connection now.
Criss: I don’t know if she likes dogs too.
Caroline Sampson: In the “Letter to Yvonne Okoro”, what do you want her to know? Is she your friend?
Criss: I mean, I had the opportunity to be her friend for two years straight.Caroline Sampson: Two years? We never saw you two anywhere…
Criss: I know, we were just friends
Caroline Sampson: Why the need to write the song now?
Criss: Its just me being creative. Lots of people write songs for people they like , I thought I will just do same.
Caroline Sampson: you talked about moments you shared in the song, why you no more friends?
Criss: I don’t know. When I had the opportunity to be her friend for two years, I reliazed she was a good person and at some point in time, I think I did somethings that were wrong and I see nothing wrong with me coming out to write a song saying I’m sorry. That was special to me. She was a special friend to me.
Caroline Sampson: So you were never lovers?
Criss: We were friends.
