It may be recalled that his brother, Joseph Iniyezo cried out for help in a video shared on the artiste’s Instagram page last August, saying he was going through some mental health issues and in desperate need of support.

She wrote; “How can I get through to Solidstar’s management or family? That’s my street blood mehn. Dude was ready to sacrifice it all for me to do well musically. Na me no just hear word! Never charged a penny, never get a gift, not even a hug. Such a selfless human. I’m hurting that he has strong men and he is still outside. O wrong.”
