Yoruba rapper, Remilekun Shafaru popularly known as Reminisce, says he almost quit music four months before his fortune improved.
According to the indigenous rapper, he actually made money after the release of the video ‘Kako Bi Chicken,’ during the period that Nigerians were protesting against the removal of fuel subsidy which was when he became a father.
He stated that he felt his talent was not bringing him money in Nigeria because it is a money controlled industry unlike the past when talents were better recognized.
Speaking about the display of wealth by some of his colleagues on social media, he says, he is a very reserved artiste who tries to differentiate between Reminisce the artiste and Remi the family man which makes him not being able to promote luxury.
Reminisce explained that it is not until one exposes his wea;th on the social media before people will know that the fellow is capable, adding that he can afford anything he wants without showing off on social media.
“When artistes do such a thing, they appear superficial and unapproachable to their fans. Instead, I simply invest in people,” he explained.
