“When everything happened, I could not handle the trauma. I was told to leave the house. In order to clear my head, I had to move to the Lagos mainland to Victoria Island. I had to leave my comfort zone. While on the island, I did not have many friends; mostly acquaintances.

“If one is down, one must have good people around one. My lawyer, my best friend, my DJ, my manager and my video director were always there for me. My family never left me. They always encouraged me to never give up. The good people around me helped me during that period of my life.”
