It all started when he was in secondary school. As a literature student, he use to appreciate to a great extent the writing of some recognized poets. Whenever he’s reciting a poem, he tried to place himself in the position of the writer in order to deduce the passion that compelled him to write. At a point, he was taken over by aesthetic feelings for poetic works that he was driven to express his own thoughts in such writing.
Meanwhile, he love music and like singing the beautiful songs by music stars hence he deemed music the fastest way to communicate and distribute his written thoughts to the world.
One night,while he was meditating, he thought to himself… If he can perfectly sing the songs of other artists and by study can create some reasonable writing, all he needed more is to understand how to combine beats and writing in an agreeable formula and his dream will be achieved. He started by personalizing the lyrics of any existing song to see what comes out.
further, he would cook up beats by the clapping of his hands to flow in his own way. And the results were great, just then he knew that he had discovered his talent. According to him, It became so interesting that it was all over him.
