Mavin Records artiste, Charles Chibueze Chukwu aka Crayon, has thanked God that he did not ‘blow’ in 2019 when Don Jazzy signed him to the music label.

Meanwhile, in related news…
CorrectNG reports that Crayon shared his trench to triumph story involving serious challenges while growing up.
He revealed that he used to hawk fruits in Lagos traffic and his family lived in a low income neighbourhood commonly known as (face me I face you).
According to the singer, he was sent home from school on numerous occasions due to unpaid school fees, and he also wrote JAMB exam five times.
Speaking during an interview, Crayon said it was while he waited to gain admission that he helped his mum to sell fruits and was also working on his music.
The 22-year-old singer recounted all these while explaining the inspiration behind his new album ‘Trench to Triumph story’.
In his words; “My ‘Trench to Triumph’ story is about where I come from, and how I got to where I am today.I was born in Orile Iganmu (Lagos) and when I was seven years old, we moved to a ‘face-me-I-face-you’ apartment in Ojo.
“We were about nine or 10 people sharing a room. I am the eldest child of my parents, and I faced a lot of financial struggles growing up. Money was very tight. I was sent home regularly from school due to unpaid fees, and I ended up taking the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination five times.
“During that time, I was working on my music, and helping my mum at the stall where she sold fruits in the market. Sometimes, I would even hawk the fruits in traffic. Going from that kind of life to being signed by Mavin Records, and on my way to becoming a global superstar, is my triumph. I used to be in the trenches and now I am triumphant.”
