Nigerian Singer, Skales, in an ongoing meeting talks about how he became homeless after he exited Banky W’s E.M.E records.
As indicated by him Timaya and Olamide conveyed him from vagrancy.
Read his story below;
“After I exited E.M.E I was a down and out kid, I was destitute, resting from one studio to the next however I had an auto. I wasn’t a companion of Olamide however he simply loved me since when I was in E.M.E. I never told anyone that I didn’t have anyplace to remain.
One day I went to Timaya’s house and it got late at night. I didn’t have anywhere to go. I was sleeping in the car outside Timaya’s house and the gateman told him “Skales is outside sleeping in the car.” Timaya came and asked me what’s going on? He looked at the back of the car and saw my bags which means practically I was living in a mobile house.
Timaya asked me to move into his house and gave me his penthouse which was really big. And that was where I recorded ‘Shake Body.’ When I released ‘Shake Body,’ I didn’t have money for promo. I just had one manager (Osagie) that believed in me. The song was everywhere but I didn’t have money to shoot the video and I wasn’t getting shows. People didn’t really know it was me that sang the song.
One day, Olamide found out it was me who sang the song and asked where I was and we spoke at length. He asked what was going on with me and why I hadn’t shot the video and I told him I didn’t have money. He said I should send him my account number which I did and like five minutes later, I got an alert.
And that’s how it happened. When I tweeted it, he wasn’t happy with me because he begged me not to ever tell anybody about it. But I wanted to just tell the world how good of a guy he is and big shout out to Davido also. He was always checking up on me. There are lots of people who were checking up on me. The list is endless”.
