When describing oneself in the background early in his career, Asuquo discussed with his fans his difficulty with having his voice heard, citing it as the primary motivation for starting out as a producer. Asuquo worked as a producer for one of the biggest artists in Africa for more than 13 years of his career.
Asuquo, on the other hand, combines soul with a serious, measured tone in his own music. When asked about his discomfort with the voice showcasing to his followers, he becomes logical and eloquent when discussing his love of music but loses his train of thought and is unable to fully explain it. He continues by saying that there was something in his voice and how he communicated it to the world that bothered him.
In addition to having a serious voice, which he is blessed with, he also has a remarkable talent for voice imitation. Cobhams Asuquo recalled fondly his school days when he would mimic his instructors and housemasters and declare that his life was a party that he thoroughly liked.
Cobhams Asuquo has a soulful voice and a gregarious personality, which he tries to show his fans with the release of his new album. He also admits that he frequently experiences stage fright despite the fact that the music is upbeat and dance-oriented. But he recalls that he has never entered the platform without feeling a little apprehensive, and he even humorously said that he steels himself to face the public and occasionally makes a vow to never face the crowd and endure the torment of being on stage.
Cobhams Asuquo sounds extremely passionate and becomes intellectual when discussing faith and prayer. Before starting his performance, he describes entering an almost trance-like state.
He continues by describing himself as a highly spiritual man and mentioning that he regularly has dialogues with God, which were of utmost importance to his decision to devote his life and career to music.
He also says that, despite his present notoriety in Africa, the Nigerian music industry did not always treat him well. Considering that he was born blind, he even experienced discrimination.
