Speaking in a recent interview with journalist, Chude Jideonwo, ZicSaloma recounted how his four brothers always shut him up whenever he attempted to sing in the house while growing up.

The skit-maker, who is the youngest son in his family, said his elder siblings used to destroy his music cassettes because they didn’t want him to do music.

According to the thespian, when he started content creation his family members also antagonised him and his brothers never believed in him, but he is now “the chief cornerstone” of the family.

ZicSaloma said; “It was only my mum that supported me. I remember when I was supposed to go for a competition in South Africa, I was supposed to go with two family and friends.

“So I took my mum, naturally, I am supposed to carry my siblings and I can not. Because none of them have ever supported me. I went with my friends.”

Nigerian singer, Kingsley Okonkwo, known professionally as Kcee, has revealed that the money he’s made from his sojourn into gospel is more than everything from his entire secular music career.

The ‘Limpopo’ made this disclosure while talking about his joint gospel album with Okwesili Eze Group, ‘Cultural Praise’ during an interview on Cool 96.9 FM, Lagos.

Kcee, who is signed to his brother’s E-Money’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.”
