According to him, he detailed that the aspiration to get enrolled on a recognised higher institution didn’t just work out.

Further revealing his struggles, he added that such failure to get enrolled into a higher institution forced him to venture into a long-term musical quest.

He also revealed that he dreamt to be a footballer which also didn’t work out for him.

In his words, he said:

“It has been amazing and beautiful to see because I have been working over the years and now, I am now finally getting the recognition that I deserve.

“So, it (recognition) is beautiful to see – among my fans, team, and everybody that knows me personally.

“I started making music like 2016 officially. I wasn’t in school then but trying to get into the university. I wrote JAMB five times.”

“For the first two times, I failed; the rest three times, I passed. I kept going to the school to lay complaints and ask: ‘What’s up?’ It (gaining admission) wasn’t just happening for me. I feel like it was God’s way of redirecting me.”

“Even before I started making music, I used to be a footballer. I like football a lot – I used to play football, go to training, academies, and stuff like that”
