He shows his relationship with his mom in a 5-minute video which shows from the start of his journey when he forayed into music, till he got a piercing in the verge of changing his look. His mom comical response from her not wanting him to go into music, and her reacting when she saw earrings on him would have you entertained.

Here are excerpts from an interview Bode Blaq had with Nigerian Tribune in 2017;
Are you doing music for money or passion?
For passion most definitely, as I have been a creative person my whole life. I used to draw portraits and comics from my junior secondary school days so I am used to being a creative person and I know making money off creativity takes patience and if you are not passionate about what you do you would fall by the roadside.
Tell us about your songs and what influenced them?
My debut single titled ‘worry dem’ is an educative song that people can easily connect with as the message is using your God given gift to keep express yourself, I see it as a motivation song and a feel good song telling people that no matter what class of the society you are in, you have got something that you can use to ‘Worry dem’.
Tell us something not many know about you?
I have great love for children. I can’t walk past a toddler without the thoughts of playing with or carrying them. Most of them are just too cute to ignore.
If not music, what would you have become?
I would have been in show business still because I am a very social person. I may also have become a full time visual artist as I love to draw.
