According to his revelation, during their stay in London, his father banned them from interacting in the English Language. This assisted in sparking his passion for the Nigerian culture which he embraced.
He further outlined that he is so obsessed with Nigerian culture and has never regretted his father’s choice.
“What made it easy for me [to blend with Nigerian street music] is that I grew up in South-East London, Peckham to be precise. That is like small Lagos, you know what I mean?”
“And all my life in England, my dad banned speaking English in the house. So, we had to speak Yoruba and all these Yoruba stuff. I still listen to Fuji. We eat African foods. Even though I’m in England, it was like I’m still in Nigeria. Yeah, it was easy for me. When I came back [to Nigeria], people didn’t really know I came from London.”
