“Back in 2015 at Mafoloku in Oshodi, after recording my first song, a group of guys took me to some Ogas (won't mention names).
"They gave me the following conditions; 1. start smoking. 2. Must be at nightclubs 24/7. 3. Join the brotherhood and serve for 6 months. 4. Find one Alfa or Cele pastor to be working for me. 5. Be loyal to one gay Oga like that. 6. Diss a popular artist regularly.

Reactions as man shares his experience with record label
The revelation from Ustinangelo has sparked a strong reaction from netizens.
Many expressed their shock and disappointment at the exploitative and unethical demands placed on him.
“That's why Spyro wants to hold Jesus, the real guy.”
“The truth is, fame requires compromising values and making questionable sacrifices. While it may not involve the specific compromises mentioned, achieving fame usually demands some compromising values. In 2015/2016, I recorded my first secular song featuring Slowdog.”
“These conditions are sick and old skool.”
“Must we sing circular songs? Tbt the music industry is dark & that means you'd have to be very familiar with the system (house) to be able to move in the dark. I ventured into rapping in 2008, lost someone dear to me immediately I dropped my first single. Story 4 another day.”
“Do you have to do all these before you can be a musician.”
“Na the gay oga off me pass.”
