He talked about how his pastor convinced his parents to allow him pursue his passion for music, where he draws his inspiration from, how he met Olamide, his Mr Producer Academy initiative, his weakest beat, why ID Cabasa is his guardian angel, why Nigerian producers do not get their dues and what he’s doing to address this through his business initiative LyriCash, and much more.
