Budding musician, Crown Uzama professionally known as Shallipopi, has opened up on how hunger motivated him to become financially successful.
Shallipopi said he’s once been so broke that he drank garri for 10 days in a stretch and it was within that period that he started to think about his life.
The ‘Garri’ singer made the revelation while being interviewed by Hip Hop artiste, Odumodublck on a recent episode of Turntable podcast.
Odumodu asked him what was the extreme incident that happened before he hit stardom that made him vow to make it by any means.
In response, Shallipopi said after drinking garri for 10 days straight, he knew that he had to work hard and make it in life.
“Make you just taste garri for like 10 straight days, then you go rethink your life. You go blow by force,” the 23-year-old singer said.
