I worked as tout after I ran away from home – Singer Oxlade
Nigerian singer Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, better known as Oxlade, has revealed that he did menial jobs to foot his bills after he absconded from home to pursue his music career.
He said at one point he sold bus tickets—a job of motor park touts, popularly called “agbero.”
In a recent interview, the music star disclosed that he had to leave home because his lecturer dad didn’t initially support his decision to be a musician.
He said: “Honestly, he [my dad] was indifferent at first. But my stubbornness and consistency paid off [laughs].
“I ran away from the house at some point in my life to pursue music personally." And I had to do all sorts of stuff to survive. "Selling bus tickets and selling foods at parties.”
Stressing that he is from the "streets of Surulere" in Lagos, he avowed that “if you can survive in Surulere, you can survive anywhere.”
He added that the experience he had in the ghetto helped him make better decisions.
