B-Red, the Nigerian singer, has recounted how he worked at Mcdonald’s in the United States — despite coming from a privileged family.
The singer, born Adebayo Adeleke, is the son of Ademola Adeleke, governor of Osun state. He is also a cousin to Davido, the Afrobeats star.
In a recent chat with HipTV, B-Red said at first, his parents weren’t in support of his music career.
B-Red recalled how he engaged in multiple jobs in America, including working at Mcdonald’s, a US fast food chain.
“Before we started music, my parents did not help us with music for the first two to three years,” he said.
“If I take it back to before I came to America when I told my parents I want to start the music, they said no, we’re not going to take that, go to school.
“I went to America, I have 3 jobs at the same time. I was a cook at my brother’s university, I was working from 6 in the morning to 7 at night.
“At a point, I was working at Mcdonald’s where you sell burgers. I think I was hustling in my own kind of way so, I won’t say everything just came easy.
“I had to work to get to where I am now. Nothing in life is easy, just push through where you are going.
B-Red also recounted how his songs started gaining attention after working as Davido’s hyper man.
“When I first started music, it was a struggle. The first 2 years I started singing, I had to prove myself extra hard. I’ve been singing for like six years professionally right now,” he said.
“I was hyping my cousin Davido all over the world as a hypeman before he comes on stage. So, people already knew me as a hypeman and I had to prove myself extra hard.
“Any single I dropped, people weren’t really interested in the first 2 years. I featured people, drop good songs, and dropped hits. Since then everything has been good.
“I’m not where I want to be now but I’m pushing and I’m also grateful to God that we’re having a good time, we’re doing good, we’re traveling the world and we’re making money.”
B-Red started his music career as a solo artiste in 2013 with the release of ‘Insane Girl’.
He has continued to enjoy fame since then with several hit projects, including collaborations with Davido.
