In March 2020 in recognition of his philanthropic contributions and servitude James Guyton Friendswitnobody was crowned High Chief in Ofeme Umauhia Abia State Nigeria.
“After over coming a very dark period of my life and spending an insurmountable time doing music as a trio, the idea of being a solo artist was the last thing on my mind. After we became local super stars, I realized the only way for me to evolve as an artist was to hit the road. Traveling thousands of miles domestically and internationally, I recorded everything I felt — everything I didn‘t feel- everything that was presented to me. My time in the group proved crucial in shaping my sound. I really appreciate that period of time in my career”.
