Speaking with P.M.Entertainment, the Abeokuta, Ogun State-born ace producer disclosed that age 65 is a milestone that calls for celebration “although I celebrate everyday I wake and give thanks to God for sparing my life. Celebration is in the mind.”
Akins revealed further that he has no regrets in life.
According to him, “I have no regrets at all in life, my talent is Godâ€“given and He has always been there for me,” praying that the nation should be better for both the rich and the poor.
He also said that Nigeriaâ€™s music industry has experienced various minuses which have over the years retarded the progress which it could have made owing to disunity among stakeholders and the menace of piracy.
He therefore urged the Federal Government to assist the industry, not only by making laws, but to enforce it to the letter.
