Nigerian musical duo, Ajebo Hustlers have disclosed that some of their friends advised them to quit music because they weren’t making a fortune from the profession initially.
The Port Harcourt-born pair claimed that before they ultimately achieved popularity, they had to accept accommodations from a number of family members and friends as a result of their struggle for fame. They said that at one point they lived with singer D’banj’s younger brother K-Switch
The “Barawo” singers made this known on the most recent episode of the Shopsydoo-hosted Afrobeats podcast.
“We squatted with K-Switch in 2016. I’m not playing. 2017 nothing was popping. It was 2018, we were still trying to push and then we made a record in 2019 with King Perry. I think we were squatting somewhere then.
“That time we were squatting because the music was not working and you now have friends that are telling you, omo, thus music is not working, you sure say you try to enter street,”
