Crown Uzama, popularly known as Shallipopi, an aspiring musician, has confessed that hunger pushed him to earn money.
Shallipopi reported that he was once so broke that he drank garri for ten days straight, after which he started to think about his life.
The 'Garri' singer said this during an interview with hip-hop artist Odomodublck for a recent episode of the Turntable podcast.
Odumodu inquired about the tragic event that occurred before his rise to fame which pushed him to achieve feats by any means necessary.
Shallipopi responded by saying that after drinking garri for ten days straight, he realized that he had to work hard to achieve anything in life.
'Taste garri for ten days, and then you will reconsider your life. You are going to blow violently,” said the 23-year-old singer.
“Taste garri for 10 days in a row”
