Nigerian Rapper, Panshak Zamani, popularly known as Ice Prince, recently launched a book titled ‘The Nigerian Dream: The Ice Prince Story.’ The book is a glimpse into the real life experiences of the man we all see today.
In a recent interview with a PM News, he revealed that writing a book was an avenue to let people know more of the hidden details about him that being on stage could not reveal.
“First of all, this book is dedicated to everyone who loves Ice Prince, everyone who looks up to him or wants to be better than him. There are certain little details you probably won’t know about me. You probably won’t know I dropped out of school because of N20,000 back in the days.” The rapper commented.
“Growing up in Jos at some point, I had to make palm sandals and be a table attendant to survive. Little things like that and more are detailed in this book.” he added.
The book follows Ice Prince, from his days of little beginnings in Northern Nigeria to his evolution as a sought-after rapper on the Nigerian music scene, in Nigeria and around the world; referencing lessons, retelling experiences and all little details adding up to the whole phenomenon, that is Ice Prince Zamani.
In recent times, it is quite evident that the rapper hasn’t really been at the top of his game like the days of ‘Oleku’ and ‘Superstar’; but he has consciously made attempts to evolve with the times. In 2018, he featured ‘rave of the moment’, Peruzzi on his single ‘Yawa’, and most recently, released another single titled ‘Feel Good’, on which he had Falz and Phyno drop some bars with a quite colourful video to follow.
