Growing up was fun for me..my parents were not super rich but then we were not poor..i was given everything i needed when i needed it and what made it more interesting was the fact that i have tall brothers and sisters..so nobody dare touch me…lmafo.so i walk majestically in and out of every territory as if my father owns it…hmm,gone were those days.lol.
Q: Wow in your mind*winks* !!! so I am talking to an industrial chemist “smiles” .That is interesting o ! So what motivated you most into your career ?
A:The fact that i love to make people laugh,make them forget their sorrowful moment was one thing that prompted me into my career.So when i perform on stage back then in school people tend to laugh and ask if i was drunk or something(lol…dont ask if i was drunk all those times o) the answer is definitely no,i did all that to entertain my friend, its just what i love doing and i was happy doing it despite the fact that i wasnt paid for it…and i would say that is still my driving force till date,when am on stage i just jonz..and make sure the little time i spend on stage isnt a waste of time.

Q: Well as you have said i can see that yours wasn’t that a struggle . So what challenges do u face in your career ?
A : I would say have being favored because i havent had much challenges since i ventured into this career or maybe i havent being taken note sha.I was still in school when BAY production signed me,and that is one challenge alot of artistes face and since then,for me,the task has being easier than expected….all thanks to GOD.**dancing**..lol.
Q: Any role models , heroes and/or mentors ?

A: I do tell people humility does it all,everybody wants to be like Tuface but they do not want to exercise his humility,it doesnt work that way and also,you should know that whatever you are,and own is a privilege,so dont intimidate others with your privilege..i dont have fans but families..so to every family who has listened,liked,commented about me and my songs(both positively and negatively),i want to say a big thank you…you wanted me to improve that was why you dropped those comments,i really cant thank you guys enough….thanks alot.and GOD bless you all…i love you all.
