Korede was first asked "Do you have friends in the industry?" to which he responded:

KOREDE BELLO: I think I do, but I don't have a lot of them. It's not as friendly of an industry as you might think it is. It's really just collaborations. A lot of them are colleagues. A lot of them, they can be show up. But not a lot of them can be described as friends. For instance, I'm not really friendly with people who like to compete. So it's more of a competitive industry, a competitive field. I'm more of a collaborative person. So people who I collaborate with, I can call friends.

When asked who he thinks can take a bullet for him in the industry, he said:

KOREDE BELLO: I have people in my mind who -- they might not take a bullet for me, I don't know how many people are going to take bullet for anybody, even husband and wife sef, this generation. But I know some people who stick their neck out for me. Who will show up for me and can metaphorically take a bullet for me. They might not be a lot. In fact, a lot of them are like my fans, and well wishers.

Then he was asked "One of the songs on the album "Minding My Business", you collaborated with Don Jazzy. Describe your relationship with Don Jazzy right now?" He responded:

KOREDE BELLO: He's one of the people that would take a bullet for me. Don Jazzy and I, we're just most times, just having vibes, just having fun. I'll just go visit him for instance, and we'll just sit down, talking about random things and the song "Minding My Business" was just one of those conversations. It's like a conversation song and we just said let's just put this into music. When I was making the album, I wanted to make something joyful with Don Jazzy. There was a part of the album that I wanted to feel joy, and Don Jazzy exudes that. We've made a lot of joyful songs in the past and I hit him up like let's give them another one.
