How Kcee prevented me from being homeless in Lagos – Iyanya opens up

Afropop singer, Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, known by his stage name, Iyanya, has revealed that his colleague, Kingsley Okonkwo aka Kcee accommodated him when he first moved to Lagos.

He revealed this during a recent interview with Naija FM 102.7, explaining that Kcee allowed him to stay under his roof for two years.

The ‘Kukere’ crooner revealed that it was the Limpopo hit maker that bought him his first flight ticket from Cross River to Lagos state.

Iyanya also argued with the interview about their similar waist whining styles and noted that Kcee was a better dancer than him.

He said; “Kcee was the person who bought me my first [flight] ticket from Calabar to Lagos. And I stayed with Kcee for two years.

“So, na Kcee na him whine waist pass. I dey tell you since you no want hear na. We were together this morning before I came for this interview.”

In other news, Kcee said the money he’s made from his joint gospel album with Okwesili Eze Group, ‘Cultural Praise’ surpasses everything from his entire secular music career.

Kcee, who is signed to his brother’s Five Star Music, said the gospel album is his most streamed project ever.

The artiste said a lot of people wrote him off when he did the album as they believed his career was dead.

He, however, said he knew the project was going to be a commercial success even before it was released.

Kcee said; “When I did the gospel [album] and a lot of people were like, ‘It’s over, he is actually going close to his village. Now he’s taking the music to the village.’

“That was horrible. When I heard that I was like, okay, let’s see how that works. And it didn’t happen. I made more money from it [the gospel album]; more than any ever before in my whole career.”
