 “I was homeless, sleeping on the floor in Oregun, at Mudina studio when I produced vector kilode….when I first created “Tease Me.” One night, after a video shoot for “Noni,” where I was humiliated by a director because I couldn’t pay him the remaining N5,000, The director stopped shooting, and my friends laughed and mocked me.

I begged Rodney to let me stay with him. That night, I left Oregun and moved in with Rodney and his wonderful family. His parents were kind to me.

As I started making a little money, I wanted to find my own place, but instead of getting a house, I rented a friend’s studio in Imole, opposite Big Treat, for 100,000 naira monthly. Nobody knew I was sleeping there; I kept it to myself. That’s where I produced “Don’t Dull.”

After a few months, I got another office space in Ogba, where I produced the remaining four tracks for the “Superstar” album. I started with nothing, and now I’m here.

Happy 13th anniversary to Wizkid’s “Superstar” album!

Samklef Noni!
