All the way from Abuja, his song ‘Akwa Ibom Ayaya’ came like a thief in the night, courtesy his manager and broadcaster with the Lunch Hour Show fame-Etim Esang. The song won the hearts of every indigene from North, West, East and South. Mish, Akwa Ibom music ambassador and the Akwa Ibom Ayaya crooner recently returned from the United States of America where he toured about 4 states, and performed at the SAGE event, and AKISAN Convention.

KeepinItReal Entertainment felt the need to have another music export that will make Akwa Ibom and indeed Nigeria proud on a world stage, hence the American trip by Mishel Meeshak popularly known as Mish.

On return, he took time out to attend to questions from Entertainment Journalists in Akwa Ibom…

Excerpts
Welcome back to Nigeria, Akwa Ibom State Mish- a.k.a Akwa Ibom Ayaiya. We watched your performances in America on TV and your videos are on YouTube. we have been following you and we are proud of you…

CAN YOU BRIEFLY SHARE YOUR AMERICAN EXPERIENCE
Thank You. I was invited to America by SAGE Group to perform at a global competition for young talented entrepreneurs that intend to venture in to business while schooling, the event had in attendance people from Taiwan, Russia, China, Mexico, China. At first, I was scared to perform because we had an audience that contained people that do not speak in English. But my songs; like ‘Love in sharing, ‘Every Woman is beautiful’ got them singing and I got an unprecedented applause.

WHY THE CHOICE OF MISH AT THE S.A.G.E EVENT
Thanks for Gods Grace…I don’t know too, I keep asking myself the same question too, why me?

WHAT HAPPENED WHILE IN THE U.S.A
I attended the Akwa Ibom Economic Summit in Houston Texas, then off to Orlando-Florida for the Akwa Ibom State Indigenes in America annual conference. That was my first time of witnessing a large gathering of my people outside Nigeria, I also had the opportunity to eat Afang, instead of all the McDonald’s. It went along way to show that our people are doing well out there, and trying to keep the culture alive, and pass it on to the new generation, even though they are very far away from home.

WHAT DO WE EXPECT FROM MISH AFTER THE AMERICAN TOUR
In as much as I want to write songs that can be presented on a wide screen and the world stage, I’ll still keep on mixing Ibibio in my songs.

WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM YOUR PERFORMANCE AT THE AKWA IBOM INDUSTRY NITE
A new enhanced performance, I am going to heat up the place and make them feel the boy like never before.
Thank You.
