Occasionally, thetraffickedblog has been opportune to witness mind-blowing performance from the rapper, songwriter and performing artist of the raving top hit “Alika” which at a little space of time became an anthem for people who seemed to be slim in size. Witnessing such impeccable performance thetraffickedblog became engrossed with questions from different angles and decided to make it a date with the rapper. Pulling through his busy studio sessions the rapper on the other hand had a lot to say to his fans. Are you curious? Let’s see what he has to say as the conversation went thus;
CAN WE KNOW YOU?
Cajeto: My names are Onuoha Cajethan Tochukwu, I’m from Umewi Ihebinowere in Njaba LGA IMO state.
Cajeto: (smiles) the name is actually from my real name, CAJEthan TOchukwu, my thirst for being unique led to it.
Cajeto: I actually don’t see myself doing anything else.
WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?
Cajeto: Music means everything to me, life will be meaningless without music, I can’t go a day without music, it’s one thing that gives me joy and happiness.
WHEN CAN YOU SAY YOU STARTED MUSIC?
Cajeto: well music has always been there since 2014, but officially as a career was late 2016 which was when I released my first official record “Started From the bottom ” featuring Icz Mani
FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CHALLENGES?
Cajeto: life itself is a challenge but concerning my music career at a point my parents partially became a tug of war (smiles) but mainly the challenge was finance.
DEFINITELY, MANY WOULD HAVE FALLEN IF THEY FACED THE CHALLENGES YOU MENTIONED EARLIER, WHAT KEPT YOU GOING? WHAT’S YOUR DRIVE?
Cajeto: this is where passion comes in play, we make good songs but then it doesn’t go far as expected due to lack of finances to give it the right promotion But the passion kept me going, that’s the drive. Like I said earlier ” I can’t even imagine myself doing anything else apart from music”
WHEN CAN YOU SAY WAS YOUR GREATEST MOMENT SO FAR IN THE INDUSTRY?
Cajeto: (smiles) my greatest moment so far would be during my performance at the APC rally because that was when my parents began to believe in the dream, it was magical being watched on different television stations though some watched me live but they never expected it, it felt good.

Cajeto: (sighs) oh my God, moments when I am broke but need to release a song or video are nightmares for me especially my “Alikalikecajeto” concert which held on may 2019, that day crowned my bad days in life but then it happened by the grace of God and was successful.
YES, “ALIKA” WAS A TOTAL BLOW OUT, WHAT CAME ABOUT IT?
Cajeto: (smiles) Alika is one song that registered my name in the streets and that’s what they normally call me due to I’m very slim and tall, so they call such people Alika in Igbo language.
SO FAR HOW MANY SONGS HAVE YOU RELEASED AND WHAT’S YOUR AUDIENCE LIKE?
Cajeto: i cant count how many songs I have released but I assure you more are coming. My audience are not millions yet but I have a strong fan base who loves me.
YOUR SECOND TRACK WHICH CAPTURED MY ATTENTION “DEY FOR YOU” WAS TOO EMOTIONAL TO BE JUST OUT OF INSPIRATION BUT WOULD RATHER SAY YOU SPOKE OUT OF EXPERIENCE, TELL US SOMETHING CAJETO?
Cajeto:(laughs) I don’t only write my songs out of my own experience, I also write out of people’s experience, I pay so much attention to the things happening around me because that’s where I draw my inspiration from.
LETS SAY THE SONG WASNT YOUR STORY BUT THERE SHOULD SOMEONE CURRENTLY DEYING FOR YOU?
Cajeto: (laughs) I would love to keep this private (smiles) make una no vex
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH FEMALE FANS?
Cajeto:(smiles) they are my favorite, I love my female fans so much and I don’t joke with them due to how they love and support me, most of them made their guys to start listening to me and the guys love me and I love them too.
ARE YOU CURRENTLY UNDER ANY RECORD LABEL?
Cajeto: yeah, I’m already signed under Runway Entertainment.
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL IN THE INDUSTRY?
Cajeto: well as for that, I admire and appreciate every good and successful artist but let’s say “Falz” and “Drake” are my main motivation
HOWS IT LIKE WORKING WITH F2 ON “PERFECT GENTLEMAN” ?
Cajeto: It was a great experience and exciting working with someone u used to watch from far, F2 is a great guy and he’s so cool, despite the challenges we faced then he was so patient until everything came out good and nice, he now sees me like his younger brother and he’s been so supportive since we met and worked together.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?
Cajeto: in the next five years I will be bigger and better, making more hits and shutting down every country around the world.
SAY SOMETHING TO YOUR PEOPLE OUT THERE, WHAT DO YOU CALL YOUR FANS BESIDES?
Cajeto: All I have to say to my people out there is ” In whatever u choose to do? Believe in yourself, work hard and pray, people will only believe you when they start seeing results, so give them results and don’t complain about anyone not supporting u, they will join the train when it starts moving, I love my fans, I call them my *#JETOfellaz* from day1.
