Nigerian singer and songwriter, Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, popularly often called Oxlade, has claimed that after working away from house to pursue his music profession, he labored odd jobs to make ends meet.
Based on Oxlade, so as to assist his musical profession, he needed to promote bus tickets, a career usually carried out by motor park touts often called “agbero.”
Oxlade revealed in a current interview that his father, a college lecturer, by no means inspired him to pursue music.
In his phrases;
“Truthfully, he [my dad] was detached at first. However my stubbornness and consistency paid off.
Truthfully, he [my dad] was detached at first. However my stubbornness and consistency paid off [laughs].
I ran away from the home sooner or later in my life to pursue music personally. And I needed to do all kinds of stuff to outlive. Promoting bus tickets and promoting meals at events.”
He emphasised that he was from the Surulere neighborhood of Lagos and declared that “if you happen to can survive there, you’ll be able to survive wherever.”
He continued by saying that the ghetto expertise had improved his decision-making.
