For me as an artiste, it is just patience for my time to come, like you know as well, a lot of top artistes we have today in Nigeria like Olamide started from nowhere, but you can see what he is today. Sometimes it is not even about money or connection, when your time come you go definitely blow; so the only challenge is just patience, for every man will definitely succeed just like our Father in Heaven, so that one is sure.”
