“I Brought Iyanya To Lagos And Accommodated Him For Years” – Kcee


Nigerian singer Kingsley Okonkwo, better known by his stage as Kcee, revealed that he was instrumental in getting fellow musician Iyanya to Lagos and that he housed him for six years.
Kcee also revealed that he saw Skibii’s potential and was instrumental in elevating him to prominence.

Even though Kcee has helped a lot of his friends in the music business, he said he would rather not brag about his accomplishments.

Speaking in a recent episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, Kcee said:-

“I brought Iyanya to Lagos, I bought his first flight ticket. He stayed with me for six years in Lagos. I don’t talk about it.

“I also brought Skibii to the music industry. Skibii is grateful to me for that till today. When I was recording ‘Ojapiano,’ Skibii was in the studio with me. He was a co-writer of the song. We visit each other always. We are still like father and son.

“When I saw Skibii I was like, ‘I love this guy. I’m going to work with him.’ Even when he wasn’t popping, I always tell him, ‘Look into my eyes, you’re gonna blow. I don’t know how, I don’t know when, but you are a star. So that gave him a lot of confidence.

“I am that guy that know how to identify talent. When I see it, I know. And I would support.”
