Controversial Five Star music Boss and Limpopo crooner, Kcee, in a chat with Saturday Beats, revealed
why he flaunts his wealth on social media. He went to challenges he
faced alongside his family while growing, and according none of that
made them go into fraud.
“I left Ajegunle because we were unable
to pay our house rent and the landlord threw us and our property out of
the house. I was wearing only my boxers when the landlord threw us out
of the house because we could not pay N70,000 for a three-bedroomed
My father started squatting with some people while my mother
went to her sister’s house. My brother and I had to hustle. By then, we
had won Star Quest so we had a rickety car, so we slept in the car. At
the time they stole our car, things were tough because all our property
was in the car. We were living from hotel to hotel and all we had was in
Sometimes we owed the hotels a lot of money which we
paid after we had a show. To get shows then was even very hectic for
Presh and I but we still believed that God would help us. By then,
E-Money had to move on to learn how to be a freight agent. He later
found his feet. Leaving Ajegunle was divine because I believe God sent
the man to kick us out.
After we left Ajegunle, we stayed in a
room apartment in Ojodu before we got a place in Omole. After a while,
E-Money started doing well and we bought a duplex in Omole, then he
bought a piece of land and continued buying and the rest is history. The
same thing with me; we grew up gradually and there was no time we were
greedy to go into crime or defraud anyone,” he said.
Kcee who also disclosed his brother, E-money who has been hustling for 17 years source of wealth, said;
brother is not into drugs or anything illegal. We are from a Christian
home and we are very careful with our lifestyle and what we do. Our only
weakness is that we show off. We like the good life. My brother is a
hard worker. For about 17 years, people have been saying that we do
drugs or 419 but why have we never been caught?
Why haven’t we
made a mistake? Why hasn’t someone come to expose us? When we had issues
with some of our team members that left recently, a lot of people were
waiting to hear that we were into illegality but they did not say that.
brother is a hard worker who is into clearing and forwarding, oil
business, real estate, etc. He started from the scratch. He used to be
my manager when I was with Presh but he left to start his own business.
It is just the grace of God. When I was playing football, I was doing
very well. I started with football and the first time I travelled out of
this country, it was through football. I never saw music coming and it
was something I did by the side.
My brother and I laugh whenever
people make statement like that. He does not do anything negative. If
not, people would have come out to expose it. I am sorry but no one can
make us change our lifestyle because it is in our DNA,” he said.
