He said Rekado Bankz was already mistakenly booked for the wedding because he has a song titled ‘Ladies And Gentlemen’ but the bride spotted out the error that she requested for the person that sang ‘Gentleman’ and not ‘Ladies And Gentlemen.’

Ric Hassani said, “I got a bank job. I don’t think I can name the bank now. The day I wanted to go (resume), that very day, Shody The Turnup King called me for a show in Lagos.

“He was the first person that gave me a show in Lagos for ‘Gentleman’. I was in Port Harcourt at that time.

“I was getting ready to go for my first day in the bank work, then this guy called me to come do a job and I was like, oh wow!

“And I just didn’t pick the bank’s call anymore and I have been here (Lagos) since then.”
