Lanre Dabiri, who we love to call eLDee the Don, is a lot of things – record label owner, producer, songwriter, recording artiste, father, and husband.

Yesterday, Henry Okelue (@4eyedmonk) took charge of our weekly Friday interview, and got him to answer several questions. Here’s an excerpt:

@YNaija: The #YNaijainterview starts in 3mins, join us as we interview award winning artiste Eldee The Don (follow on twitter @eLDeeTheDon)

@eLDeetheDon:  I’m Nigerian ☺ RT @YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon  We know you lived in Georgia, USA for 6 years. Are you an American Citizen? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon:  I believe the govt can do much more to protect the lives of its citizens. You already know I don’t support the subsidy removal, not in these hard times, govt shd provide basic amenities first. RT @YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon How well do you think the govt has handled the Boko Haram debacle and subsidy removal fiasco? #YNaijainterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon Considering ur level of political consciousness, will you ever seek office?#YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: I hav no such intentions. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon How will you describe your relationship with Mo’Cheddah & Freestyle of the old Tribesmen? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: They’re both good friends of mine. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon As a qualified Architect in music, would you encourage your child to deviate like u did? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: I will allow my kids follow their passion after getting a proper education like I did. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon Is there any possibility of a Tribesmen reunion album in the future? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: It’s definitely possible. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon What was the motivation behind your refusal to back the President during the elections? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: I don’t stand by anything I’m not completely sure of, nothing personal. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon What is your take on Don Jazzy’s recent opinion about Nigerian rappers? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon:  I think he was misunderstood. He was only saying rap is a tough sell in Nigeria, which I agree with. The only successful rappers we have are those who understand the need to connect with their audience. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: @eLDeeTheDon  Having brought Sasha P and other femcees to limelight, do you still monitor their careers? #YNaijainterview

@eLDeetheDon: I do, I pray for more success for each and every one of them and I’m proud of their achievements so far. #YNaijaInterview

@YNaija: And a BIG thank you to our guest interviewer for today – Henry Okelue @4eyedmonk! You were splendid! #YNaijaInterview – with @eLDeeTheDon
