www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: Is likely you have a lot of responsibility as being the first born?
Leorest: Yes oooh,
Though I have very industrious siblings who dont believe in asking people for help, well I guess that's one of the attribute gotten from my father 'sir Simeon Steven snr.
But it still doesn't remove the fact that sooner or later I will assume the responsibility of a father
So thats why I combine music with business.
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: Laughs
Will you say growing up in Lagos State influenced your going into music?
Leorest: Yes for sure,
Music started in jss 1 wen I ll always for class rap battles,
Ajegunle for me was a place of training for me,
You see alot of dramas,
And for me I still believe that ajegunle was a place music started
In the likes of Daddy shokky... African China Baba frayo,and many more.
Leorest: Sorry I still believe music started from ajegunle

Process,
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: We believe there must be a story behind it?
Leorest: Hmmmm
Leorest: Yes
I think the inspiration came when I was down with the attitude of comparing myself with others.
It got me depressed till Christ showed me how blessed I am in him,
 So I figured that though am not there yet but am in a process.
Leorest: It also applies to some other people going through the same disease of comparing themselves.
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: wow wow
Composing process; why choose the name PROCESS?
Leorest: Oh kk
Well the first name I wanted to use was journey man, but I changed it wen I listened to the beat.

I believe in decency in music so that's the reason why am burdened to introduce decency into the music industry as a whole
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: What's is your view point about this current gospel music trend in this country?
Leorest: It should be innovative and more poetic.
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: What roles do you see your self playing in gospel music?
Leorest:My role is to bring balance..
A gospel singer should not limit is reach. I believe Christians can still sing secular.
Leorest:We need creative writers....
So that our impact won't be limited to just the church.
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: Coming to secular music and gospel songs, Our readers needs to know the different cos a lot of misconceptions has been held secular music.
Most people thinks secular music has to do it with all about Sexual or relationship songs
Leorest: Well music is mainly about the person because songs carry music.
I think what people call secular is wrong. Secular simply means any thing that's not religious,civil or lay.
www.dibuapeterinforms.com.ng: Hmmm
Leorest:We can have good decent love songs,
With correct inpiring lyrics ok why would I play Nathaniel basseys songs in my wedding??
