We asked Niyah what the message was behind the album title Ambition, he responded “ I am a very ambitious person, when I was in prison, a lot of people thought I was never going to make it back or be anywhere in life. It was my task and mission to change this by using all my power and reach to make sure I stay on the right path and do better for my family and myself. Without ambition we are nothing, we have to set goals that others might think is unrealistic”.
We then asked him if there would be any videos that are coming out with the album? He responded “oh yes, I have two videos that are ready to go, I plan to shoot more for the album as time goes on, hopefully the world starts opening up again so we can get back to some sort of normality”.
