Akinyibi Ahmed, the Nigerian singer better known as Bella Shmurda, appears to have realised the need to spend money wisely.


In a recent interview with Korty, the YouTuber, the music star recounted some of the financial mistakes he made in the early stage of his career.

On his extravagant spending, Shmurda said he used to live with ten friends and some of the women they bring to the house — all of whom he financed their daily lives.

The ‘New Born Fela’ crooner, however, said he has now learnt his lessons.


He also pledged to make more sensible financial decisions for himself.

“I used to have money, like enough money but I rushed things. As I was getting the money, I was just buying a lot of things; things I wouldn’t eventually need,” he said.

“So at this point, as I’m getting new money I have to think about every move I want to take. There were up to 10 friends staying with me then in a four bedrooms apartment and we would still carry women.


“Then I wanted to get a car, I bought three cars at once because if I want to go out I would want my boys to fill up another so we can be in a convoy. I went to the club one day, I spent N2 million in the club.

“Now, I can still spend N2 million in a day but it should be something I can account for.”

The ‘Cash App’ crooner also revealed he once desired to be signed by Olamide, the Nigerian rapper.

“At a point, I wished Olamide signed me because everything was rough for me. I don’t know who to really ask, nobody to out me through,” he added.
