Nigerian rapper and songwriter, Ayoleyl Hanniel Solomon popularly known as Reekado Banks, says he nearly gave up on his music career as the road up to the ladder was tough for him.
According to him, God miraculously used his brother—through Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy, to get him the contract with the record label.
“Like I said it was like a miracle. He sent out something on the internet and said people should send him their demo singles. Luckily for me brother did send mine. He sent it he didn’t even tell me because at the time we were not in good terms and he sent it for me. Luckily my song was the only one picked out of the 5000.”
“2 years ago I wanted to quit so I didn’t think I would be this big. It was tiring I was in school but I just felt let me get my 100% back into music but few month later I meet miracle,” he told Naij.com in a chat.
Reekado Banks, who won the Rookie of the year at The 2014 Headies was optimistic that greater things are yet to happen in his musical career.
“I don’t know how it went but I think it’s was God’s grace and my hard work. So many people are hardworking and talented than I am but its God’s grace that just kept me going brought me here and will still take me higher.
“Everything wanted me to quit. It wasn’t even funny. It’s was like I was doing it for waste I don’t know how to explain it. It was so much frustration and hard time. I just thought it was right for me to face my studies and get a job later. It’s just God grace that made me to just forge ahead,” he further stated.
