In a Twitter post on Wednesday, the 26-year-old said his uncle was a rapper but his career suffered a setback which made him to “start taking drugs.”

According to him, his uncle was taken to different rehabilitation centres thereafter before eventually returning to the village.

The ‘Sex Over Love’ crooner said due to his uncle’s ordeal, people around him also thought a similar situation would happen to him when he announced his music career.

Blaqbonez added that he has so far been proving those with such mindset wrong.

“Had an uncle that used to rap, didn’t happen for him, he then got hooked on drugs, from rehab to rehab till he ended up in the village, when I started rapping everyone thought I would end up like that but boy did it turn out soooo different I stay proving em wrong,” he wrote.

“They used to say “I see the spirit of uncle *** inside him” and it used to hurt me soooooo bad, it then built a serious fear and anxiety in me, in everything I did, cos I constantly thought ‘what if they’re true?”
