People have been hearing my music before, from Benue and other cities, but the first time that I officially kicked off my music career professionally, from Plantashun Boyz was in 1999; twenty years ago. Since then I’ve been here. So many people have been part of my journey, there have been so much ups and downs. I’ve said so many things I shouldn’t have said. I’ve made some foolish decisions; but then I’ve done a lot of great things that I’m grateful to God for.
'I’m grateful to God and all my fans for still being here; I’m grateful for all my critics and for all those that have supported me all these twenty years. It’s been lonely at the top, but it’s no more lonely, because many young bloods are now taking music even beyond where I took it to and that’s my joy. But you know as they say ‘Old soldier never dies’, so I’m still much relevant and at the top.”
