Weeks ago, there was a report making waves on the social media that then-popular Nigerian artiste, 2shotz was spotted working as a photographer in an event in the United States of America, where he is resident now.
This came as a shock to many to discover that one of the artistes that held it down in the country with so many hit songs has abandoned his calling for another profession.
The rapper has however opened up on the reason for the action he took and according to him, he is not doing bad in his newly-found profession[AdSense-A]
2shots was contacted by Sunday Scoop and inquiry was made on why he left Nigeria, the rapper spoke with so much bitterness.
“My contributions to the Nigerian music industry were never publicly acknowledged; so, what is the point of talking about music in Nigeria. Real people don’t go far in Nigeria. I really don’t care about what is going on in that industry anymore. The problem is the individuals.”
Reacting to reports that he has dumped music for photography, he said,
“I am now a photographer and filmmaker. This is as much as you can get. I am not interested in attaining stardom again and I don’t care about it.”
The last time the rapper was in the news was when he was alleged to have battered his former girlfriend, former Big Brother Africa contestant, Beverly Osu. The union was reported to have been characterized by series of beating and assault as alleged by the model. However the rapper denied ever laying his hands on her, claiming she was trying to bring him down.
In his words:
“I wonder why some people find it hard to move on after a broken relationship. There are so many things to do with your life rather than trying to bring other people down”
