Read excerpts;
On why he split with Kcee: “When Kcee and I were together, he was taking away my style of music because that wasn’t really me; it was the commercial side of us. But now I have woken up that thing inside of me; the singing, dancing and gingered Presh, all put together. I needed to bring out the other parts of me and it needed a lot of work that was why I went away.”

On his relationship with Kcee: “It is very normal and cordial. I remember on his birthday, I sent him a birthday message. I still have it on my phone and I can show you. Kcee and I are still brothers and we are both doing music successfully. I am not in competition with him, if I am not happy with him that makes me an enemy of progress. I am so happy for his progress. Even the last AY show, when he was performing, I was dancing. There’s nothing to regret about our decision to go solo. As far as music is concerned, Presh has somewhere to go to and that is where I am heading.”

On if he is envious of Kcee’s success: “I don’t think so. I am happy for him and what he has achieved so far. There is no need to be jealous or envious of him. I want him to be successful. This things happening to him is what I want, and I’m sure if you ask him now, he will tell you the same thing. I love Kcee, so there is no need to be envious of his success. I want him to succeed more than this.”
