According to the music producer, he struggled hard to get his life in shape while simultaneously working on Wizkid's album.

" I rented a friend's studio in Imole, opposite Big Treat, for 100,000 naira monthly. Nobody knew I was sleeping there; I kept it to myself. That’s where I produced "Don’t Dull. After a few months, I got another office space in Ogba, where I produced the remaining four tracks for the "Superstar" album. I started with nothing, and now I’m here. Happy 13th anniversary to Wizkid’s "Superstar" album!"
