“The lanky singer said, “I sold kerosene, coconut and pure water on the streets before I made it in life.

“I also sold fish, periwinkle, and other sea foods, in Bonny Island in Rivers State to survive.

“While I was doing that, I was still singing, entertaining people to sell my goods.

“It was like a strategy for me, I used it to get their attention and also to patronise me.

“I am actually a church boy and I was a chorister in church. In 2010, God answered my question and I got signed to Grafting Records. I am still with them.

“Also, I sang ‘Count it all joy,’ for God because I cannot forget him and he has made me all I am today. I have another song coming out soon called ‘Prayer.’

“I go to church regularly and pay my tithes. I also try to live a good life.

“I don’t drink or smoke even though I am an ambassador to an alcoholic drink.

“These days, I just take a very little alcohol mixed with a lot of soft drink,” he added.

Recall that the singer recently opened up on his relationship with ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty.
