The member of the music trio VVIP said that music is a food for the soul and wouldn't listen to any junk music since his soul needs good food. 

"I must be frank,  I don't listen to too much of the current hip-hop songs, it's junk, I listen to songs which inspires me. I may be wrong but that's it"

In a quick response to a question asked by the Turn Up Army' Merqury Quaye, 

"..i have a selection of songs I enjoy and may be a good DJ if I sit behind your console but your station would be closed off" He jokingly said.
