“A lot of music management companies, A&R showed interest,” he says, “but it seemed like they were just jerking my chain, all they keep saying is keep working, keep putting out music. I got so tired of hearing that, at a point, I became an anti-record label and A&R, nobody actually gave me a deal just social media post support. Then I decided to take it upon myself and find a way to push myself, thank God for the internet I’m doing great right now making about a million Naira monthly on digital platforms/streams, and will never stop until I get bigger wins. the internet is a blessing to independent artists I hope they put energy on digital platforms”.
