I contacted the new house of assembly member and posed some questions to him.

-congratulations on your victory at the polls tony.does this mean that you will abandon your music career?

....No. I will never leave music.

-what are your plans now?

My plans now is to relocate to Awka and serve my people for the next 4 years to the best of my ability.What I wont do is to allow any event conflict with my official duties.I will do music in my spare time.

-wont there be a conflict between your job as an honourable and as a musician?

I am a law maker now. But assuming I have to do something related to music in my unofficial hours and I think I have the energy..., why not. There's no law against that

-did your victory come as a shock to you?

.My victory came from God. So I wasnt shocked. I knew from day one that God had made me the man to beat. SO I kept working harder and harder till the victory came. "Come and join me sing Halleluiyah... Jehova has done me well"

-why are you so excited?jehova has done you well but we hope its not to enrich yourself?

..I won an election of this magnitude and u are asking me why I am excited?stella you be winch? How do u enrich yourself in the house of assembly? There's no money there my dear. Am I poor? Dont forget I have a bubbling career in entertainment before this new blessing. Are u not excited that I made history as the only artiste in the history of Nigeria to be elected into the legislature?
