He said growing up in a slum in the Bariga axis of Lagos State motivated him to hustle hard.
The ”Wo” crooner made this known while speaking with The Guardian UK, adding that although surviving was hard in the ghetto, he hustled hard to become successful just to experience life in a different culture.
“Surviving was hard. Bariga was not far from the other slums you see across the world, from Mumbai to New York and London – life in the ghetto is almost always the same everywhere.
” I also wanted to see the whole world and experience different cultures from what I grew up seeing,” Olamide said.
