“I auditioned for billboards. I got tired. I tried for BBNaija from the time of Efe until I got in,” the singer had said.

“Someone tried to make me smuggle drugs. I wooed ladies; they rejected me for being poor. I worked as a driver, sold shoes. I was born with a silver spoon. That got taken from me at a tender age,

“This left my brother and I on the streets to hustle. My brother wouldn’t allow me to do the hard jobs. He did bricklaying in Benin; we were paid with bread. What we were practically doing was begging. My father left us.”
