The This Year crooner was a guest on media personality Chude Jideonwo’s ‘With Chude’ show when he opened up on his tough upbringing.

“At one time I was selling alcohol, selling weed, and selling cigarettes. In the morning and noontime I do vulcanising and shoe making, hawk pure water here and there but at night I go back to that one. My shop was close to these prostitute quarters then, they were my customers.”
