Mavin Records artiste, Charles Chibueze Chukwu aka Crayon, has said his debut album, ‘Trench To Triumph’ is a representation of his true-life experience.

Crayon revealed that his mother sold fruits for a living in Orile Lagos state and they lived in a face-me-I-face-you apartment with nine people in a room.

The 23-year-old said ‘Trench To Triumph’ follows his success story from when he was living in the ghetto with his family in a low-income neighbourhood to getting signed by music executive, Don Jazzy.
