He said that he had earlier rescinded to faith and embraced farming before the opportunity came, “I was inspired to sing about the hardship in the country then. Unfortunately, I have never travelled out of this country since then. It was rumoured that the then Governor of Ogun State assisted me to get a visa and travel, but it was not true.”
