Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Kizz Daniel has recalled a time he worked at a regular job in Ogun state.
The ‘Odo’ hit maker said he once did printing press work in Jaroy Idi Aba, Abeokuta and he was there for one year. He said he was earning N150,000 from the work.
Kizz Daniel made the disclosure on microblogging platform, Twitter while responding to a fan who asked for loan to start a printing press.
A man identified as Adebayo Olam requested a loan of N3 million and promised the artiste a 15 percent return on investment.
“Give me loan 3million to invest in my printing business and I will return it with 15%”
In response, Kizz wondered if the amount for starting the business and the income generated will be much different now given the economic situation.
“I did printing press for 1 year at Jaroy Idi Aba Abeokuta , I made 150k 💁🏿♂️ tell me things are different now 🙄”, the singer tweeted.

A Nigerian lady who graduated with a first class in Engineering has revealed how she strived to be the best in her class after losing her parents in the first year.
Kinfeosioluwa Akin-Ibisagba emerged the Best Graduating Student of the Department of Civil Engineering, Covenant University in 2021 with a 4.92 CGPA. She said her mother passed away first then her dad followed shortly and it pushed her into depression.
However, the graduate said she overcame the grief and made sacrifices in order to have a stellar academic performance. According to Kinfeosioluwa, there was a need to prove to her sponsors that their investment in her was not a wasted one.
She said; “I lost my mother and shortly after, my dad also followed. This was during the first semester of my first year at CU. Through the family drama, depression and silent tears at night, God promised to see me through. I had not even recovered from the loss of my mum when I lost my dad. It was tough for me because we were very close. I didn’t even know how my life would be after that. Even my other family members were worried that I wouldn’t be able to cope. But I had to be strong.
When one has a clear focus on a dream, one will make sure nothing comes between one and that dream. It was always my dream to get good grades and make my family proud. I knew that I couldn’t be like other students. I had to work extra hard. It isn’t every day you get to see someone who schools at Covenant University.
So, I knew the sacrifices my sponsors made to get me into a private university and I had to pay them back with nothing less than good grades. I deprived myself of pleasure and a lot of other things other students would do to make sure I never derailed. Was it tough? Well, I would say it was. Was it worth it? Of course, it was, and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything else.”
