“Before popularity discovered me, I functioned as a processing plant kid for around ten years. I worked with Dangote and a ton of organizations that deliver dry gin. I earned about N15,000 every month except now, I am a standout amongst the most looked for after artistes and I charge about N1m per appear,” he said.
Three years after he started functioning as an assembly line laborer, he chose to give music a shot yet picked the rap kind, a move that did not pay him by any stretch of the imagination. Subsequent to grasping ghetto sound, he chose to switch classification; a choice which has swung him to one of the rave existing apart from everything else artistes.
“I never trusted that I would be this huge inside a brief timeframe. I have been in the business for around seven years however when I began, I was a rap artiste, I radioed amicable melodies yet my life and music changed when the Shaku Shaku slant went ahead board. Before I discharged my hit tune, ‘Oshozondi,’ the folks in the city of Mushin and Agege region had been moving the Shaku Shaku move however there was no beat that mixed with their tunes. They had been searching for a particular beat that would be musical with the sound yet any semblance of Davido and Wizkid were giving them elegant tunes till I went ahead board and discharged the ‘Oshozondi’ melody and the beat was only for the road; it was unadulterated Shaku Shaku beat. The pattern of the new melody and the move step just turned out at the ideal time and it worked for me. Before I knew it, they began moving Shaku Shaku to my tune and individuals started to trust that I was the one that began Shaku Shaku. After the ‘Oshozondi,’ the ‘Legbegbe’ melody went ahead board,” he said.
It shows up as though he is the new King Midas of the music business as each artiste both built up and obscure look to have joint effort with him. He revealed to Saturday Beats that he thought he had a trick call when he was welcome to sing with D’banj. “I never envisioned any semblance of D’banj or Tiwa Savage highlighting me in a tune however it has happened and one week from now, I am discharging another melody with Wizkid. It was after the ‘Legbegbe’ tune inclined that I got a call from somebody in D’banj’s camp for a component with him in light of the fact that the sound was at that point drifting on the terrain. From that point onward, I got a call from DJ Enimoney and we completed a tune that highlighted any semblance of Tiwa Savage and Reminisce,” he said.
Notwithstanding the way that the vast majority are theorizing that he is a danger to any semblance of Olamide, Lil Kesh and Small Doctor, the artist noticed that he was just their partner and not a risk.
“I am not a risk to any semblance of Olamide, Lil Kesh or Small Doctor yet individuals may think I am on the grounds that I have brought another sound from the road to the business. Individuals simply like the way I do my thing in light of the fact that in my tunes, you can’t without much of a stretch disentangle in the event that I am singing or talking. They simply adore the uniqueness of my style. Everybody is doing great in their own path. I simply express gratitude toward God for where I am today,” Slimcase said.
The artist made it clear that in opposition to prominent supposition, Shaku Shaku does not advance indecency,
“The Shaku Shaku tunes are road melodies from the deepest parts of the ghetto. These melodies just paint the photo of what occurs in the deepest parts of the ghetto. Somebody simply needs to sing about things like that,” he said.
