This has definitely been one of the hardest things I had to pen down. A year plus after Project fame I returned to Lagos to chase my dreams, I was young ,unsure but full of hope. I kept in contact with @illblissgoretti ( whom I met during the show in 2008 and was always giving me words of encouragements) and @clarenceshotit (whom I met in 2007, he gave his studio to my friends to create ahead of their dance competition finale) . They introduced me to @stevebabaeko and got me my first commercial with @tomtomsweet_ng which was a bop !!! I kept pushing tho it was so hard, all I had was my laptop that had seen it all, headphones and my midi controller to make beats tho I couldn’t record and I had no money to pay for sessions. One day I was asked by my friend Oscar to help engineer one of his projects , and I met @protekniks who was the manager of the studio. We became friends and he offered me free sessions whenever the studio was free, we was heaven sent. On the the 8th of Feb @stevebabaeko got me signed to @x3mmusic , this for me was a dream come true because no body was ready to take the chance on me. From being a young boy with dreams living in Kaduna to becoming a multi award winning musician with international recognitions. Sleepless nights, tenacity and grind with the Team created this superstar. It’s been an amazing 10years of great music, team work , patience , love , joy , trials ,travels , loyalty and growth with my family @x3mmusic. It’s always every Father’s dream for his son to grow and succeed, and even greater grace when you have his blessings. I want to thank @stevebabaeko for believing ,thank you for being my support system. You made a superstar and I am forever grateful. Thank you @ebynelly for always looking out for me, your diligence , time away from family and making sure that the brand succeeds, all those sleepless nights weren’t in vain. Thank you @osagz & @b2datj for pushing me and believing in my dream. Thank you @ogagus , we had a roll bro filled with great times 😁. Thank you @walenaija , you are a great man. Thank you @naffie_abdul , you are just amazing. This is not a parting message but the beginning of greater partnership.
