He said; “Getting the chance to work with Mr Eazi when I did in 2017 was a big deal for me, my family and the people in my vicinity. Also, working with Reekado Banks, Yung L and others was mind-blowing.

“I’m really grateful I was able to have some of these great artistes collaborate with me earlier. This gave me a name and equity in the industry. It makes my story so beautiful and more interesting.”

Giftty further traced the origin of his musical journey back to his home as he grew up in a family with four talented sisters, each possessing unique abilities.

“I have four sisters and we are talented in our own different ways. In fact, I was in the choir with one of my sisters while growing up and she was, and is still an amazing vocalist.

“They were a strong influence on my early decision to make music. We would score songs together. This made me connect with artistes through their music. All these led me to make my own music,” he said.
