‘I was raised in abject poverty’ – Masterkraft
According to the top Nigerian Producer who just concluded a job with American superstar, Jason Derulo, disclosed that playing music in church then was his escape.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, he hinted that he was born into abject poverty and life as a child in Ajegunle was like sleeping in thorns.
“Growing up in Ajegunle was an experience for me because I was raised in abject poverty. The only thing that gave me joy was music especially because I was born in a white garment church. Playing music in church gave me hope. At a point in my life, I had to hawk; I sold ‘pure water’, tin tomato and also tissue paper, that is just to mention a few. At a time, I had to work as a houseboy just to survive and I did that for about two years.
Then I complained to my father that I did not like the job and that I wanted to come back home. When I got back home, I began to play the piano. That’s when I began to produce music. My childhood was very tough and challenging but I am grateful to God that none of those things hindered my future,” the beat maker said.
