Winner of MTN Project Fame season 6, Olawale Ojo has in details revealed why suddenly turned a cab man in the suburbs of Lagos State.
The 2013 winner of the reality music show says he dumped music to make ends meet and to beat depression in interview on Channels Television’s programme Rubbin Minds.
“For a short while, I felt depressed. I had the option of giving someone this car to probably drive for me,” Olawale said.
He also revealed that he has for “couple of months in Lagos” been into driving business.
According to Ojo, maintaining stardom is a difficult task. He noted that has done everything possible to sustain his fame.
He, however, regretted that life hit at him hard despite making attempts to release an album in 2014 where he featured Tiwa Savage, Skales and Lil Kesh.
“I won an SUV, N5m and a recording contract. Personally, I thought from Project Fame, I was going to blow up like that. That was what everybody expected.
“I put up an album after the show in 2014 and that was part of the contract. I featured Tiwa Savage, Skales and Lil Kesh in the album. I shot two videos.
“Everything just started playing out like that. It got to a stage when life hit me. Things were not working out the way I thought,” he explained.
Ojo’s comments come few days after a video of him went viral on Instagram stating his ordeals after stardom in 2013.
In a short video posted on Instagram by Tope Delano, the reality show star narrated how he had to fight depression when music wasn’t going the way he expected.
He further narrated how he had to make a choice between selling the car he won after emerging the tops at the Project Fame West Africa in 2013.
