When asked why he worked so hard, he admitted that he sees music as his way out of being a regular person and becoming someone to be reckoned with. He also talked about the pressures he faces as the breadwinner of his family. They all look up to him and he cannot let them down, hence the long nights in the studio.
As for getting signed to Marlian Music, he tells us that they started talking after Naira Marley's EFCC scandal.
