#TOPCHART: Welcome to #TOPCHART
HYDRA: Thank you am so honored to be here
#TOPCHART: So can you tell our thousands of viewers who you are and what you do?
HYDRA: Well my name is Victor Hydra Aneme, am from Imo state, I’m a rapper/singer/blogger. And the CEO of YAYANEH inc
#TOPCHART: How did you start all this?
HYDRA: I will say growing up I have always loved music, later when I met with Virusdetected shex in 2003 we started a group before he left and joined Da Saint . While I started another group called Ultra Vivid with Slimfaze. And since then I have not turned back till date
I started blogging in early 2013 because I kind of have the talent of writing and I read Mass communication in school, so they all blends
#TOPCHART: How has your career been over the years?
HYDRA: Really good, I can confidently tell you that am progressing. I won best artist back in school and NYSC Camp. I get shows at random. Even media hype. So everything is going as planned I thank God.
#TOPCHART: How would you rate yourself among other northern artists?

#TOPCHART: How would you describe 2014 for you.?

HYDRA: Internationally Lil Wayne, Kanye West, drake, big Sean. While locally ice prince, Timaya, MI, Skales.
#TOPCHART: You are a known name in some major parts of your home town Kaduna, how do you deal with competition?
HYDRA: Lol I don't compete with no one, I just do my thing, even tho some healthy competition is good for the industry to grow I don't still see anyone as a threat or vice versa. If I see a colleague that is doing well I encourage and support him/her I don't hate. Afterall "no be person wey first call police dey win case" some upcoming artist can even be bigger than Hydra, Skales, Marvelous and even Virusdetected tomorrow.
#TOPCHART: Why do you choose to be an artist?
HYDRA: I didn't choose music, she chose me. As I said earlier on I was born with entertainment in my system. For the record I don't only sing or rap, I am an actor and a presenter too; I can even try comedy sef Lol
#TOPCHART: Jag of all trade huh? So, from research you are the naughty type and also have so many issues with some others Kaduna entertainers. Why is that so?
HYDRA: I won't deny the fact that am naughty, but as for having issues with other entertainers I will say that's a fallacy. I have no problem with anybody. Most recently I have attended many shows where my other colleagues where present and we blended very well. Am the kind of person that speaks my mind especially on social media, so when I do this it generates lots of controversies and comments in which some might sound malicious, thereby making people feel I have problems with people. I don't In fact they are all my friends, *in Ice Prince voice* the whole of Kaduna is my guys Lol
#TOPCHART: Are you under any contract deal with any company?
HYDRA: No am not
#TOPCHART: What do you have for your fans 2015?

HYDRA: Hmmmmmm I see myself as the biggest act in Africa, not just famous but stinking rich.
#TOPCHART: So before we round up, what do you have to tell the hundreds of thousands readers out there?
HYDRA: Be the best you can be and don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it. And to the upcoming artist make sure you love what you do, work hard; bring out money to promote yourself. And lastly always pray to God. I want to make a shout out to my manager Belluci, Mc Bahws, Slimfaze, Sound Mike my producer, All Caritas university students both old and new.
