I started gaining confidence in myself not too long ago.

When I was 6 months old, my neighbour’s 10-year-old son poured very hot pap (ogi), fresh from the fire, all over me, from head to toe. I still have a few scars from the incident.

Because of that incident, I went through nursery and primary school without a strand of hair on my head. Not one. Imagine a child going to school bald. I hardly made friends and I kept to myself a lot. I was also shy and couldn’t look at people in the eye. As you can imagine, I became depressed at a young age.

In primary school, I was advised to try something to make my hair grow. Something was rubbed on my head and the sharp end of crayfish was used to puncture holes in my scalp. Despite the fact that my scalp was numb, I could still feel the pain. Little strands of hair began to grow. I now looked weird and still had no friends. I eventually made one – Tunde Amure. He’s still my friend today.

In secondary school, I joined the fellowship choir and one day, I sang during rehearsals. Everyone wondered who was singing. I started becoming a bit popular. Singing boosted my confidence and that’s how my music started.

I went to Olabisi Onabanjo University (OSU) and studied Mass Communication. My inferiority complex that started from childhood also affected me in Uni. I was bullied. At the time, I had hair on my head but not as much as it is now.

I joined the school fellowship and started learning to play the keyboard. My circle of influence began to grow from OSU. I started meeting people who became influential in my life. My current pastor and David Nkennor believed so much in me and they’ve played a huge role in my life.

Prophecies are good. They change the atmosphere and events of your life to favour you. I can boldly say I’m a child of prophecy by my mentors. Today, I’m married with 2 kids and I’m also a music minister.
