Phyno, the renowned rapper whose real name is Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike, recently shared his past experiences as a struggling artist.
He disclosed that during that challenging phase, he was advised to join a cult or participate in rituals to achieve quick fame and success in his music career.
Phyno emphasized the importance of hard work, determination, and resilience as the fundamental factors that led to his success.
He discouraged young aspiring artists from seeking shortcuts to success and cautioned them against hastily signing contracts with record labels without carefully reviewing the terms and conditions.
He mentioned, “Some people may look at our achievements today and assume it was easy, but that’s far from the truth.
Before Phyno became well-known, I had songs that went unnoticed. A few friends suggested shortcuts like joining a cult or making sacrifices, but I refused because I believed the price was too high. I had faith in myself and the power of hard work, and I started small. Today, I am grateful to God.”
Phyno also offered advice to emerging talents, urging them not to be desperate for record deals or instant fame. Instead, he encouraged them to focus on honing their craft, emphasizing that success would come with time.
He stated, “Imagine begging a label to sign you; they’ll exploit your desperation. Initially, you might not see it, but eventually, you’ll regret it. Nothing is more rewarding than consistent hard work.”
