He recently had a chat on The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, where he said he would start drinking alcohol if he is offered N100 million.

The former Starboy Entertainment signee also said he can perform anywhere in the world so long as money is involved.

The singer also said he is underrated in the industry, but he understands that everyone has different journey’s in life, so he is doing what he loves.

He said; “I feel underrated [in the Nigerian music industry]. But I don’t think it’s that serious to me. I’m just doing what I love. And I feel like people around the world are seeing what I am doing. So it’s not like I am not doing something.

“Everybody has a journey. Everybody has the path that they are supposed to follow in life. So I just feel like some people will be underrated. And for you to even be underrated, that means you are rated.”

Nigerian singer and actor, Sexy Steel, has said he is a principled person who will not drink alcohol even if he is offered N50 billion.

He stated this when he appeared as a guest with ID Cabasa on an episode of Frankly Speaking podcast with OAP Nedu, where he recalled losing a huge endorsement deal with Guinness because he does not take alcohol.

According to the stylist, he had a meeting with the company’s management team, and they wanted him to taste one of its new products, but he declined.

He requested that another drink be poured inside, and they insisted that for him to be their brand ambassador he would have to taste it.

Steel maintained his position and his refusal made them to take the deal to music legend, Innocent Idibia aka Tubaba.

The musician said his manager was angry at him and wondered if he had a mental problem for rejecting such a huge deal because of alcohol.
