β€œI had recorded my first single, I had been gaining airplay in my hood back then. Agege, Ogba, all those places.

β€œBut person no fit just stand dey believe say dem go dey call you for show.
β€œThose times if you’re opportuned to be on the stage you go beg with the fact that they’ve been playing the song all the while. So I just needed to have some other things to just keep the ball going.

β€œI was a conductor for years, almost a decade, From Agege to Ikeja, Ikeja to Maryland, Maryland to Yaba.
