2017 Afro pop song of the year nominee A.I has explained why he usually uses cusses in his songs. According to A.I, he doesn’t intentionally cuss but the mood in the studio when recording a song is what influences him. He revealed this on The Brunch hosted by Kwesi Dope on Spyderlee Entertainment TV on Tuesday morning.
According to A.I, when recording, he says what he feels; and to achieve that, he tries to block what his listeners would like or wouldn’t like to hear. He added that, he doesn’t intentionally cuss but if the mood is right, he will cuss. He went further to cite examples of songs which he didn’t cuss. They included ‘Anger Management’ and ‘Making Tasha Proud.’
