I Stopped Visiting my Family When I was Asked to Quit Music –Mr. Real

Published

on

Mr. Real, in an interview with Saturday Beats said that the road to stardom was not rosy as most of his family members advised him against pursuing a career in music.
He said, “I have been doing music for over 10 years now. But you know in life when it is not your time, there is nothing you can do about it. All this while, I have been working and waiting on God for a breakthrough. .
.
. Once God says it is your time to shine, no man on earth can stop you from shining. Before my song, ‘Legbegbe,’ I was only doing free shows. But it is a different story now. .
. “There was no time I thought of leaving music despite the pressure I was getting from my family members then. For me, music is part of my existence as a human and there is nothing else I can do better than music. When I was not making money from music and things looked stagnant, my father wanted me to try other things. It was a serious issue at home. I cannot blame my father because he wanted the best for me; I am his first child. But I insisted that it was music or nothing. .
.
. It was not easy to stay focused as I got frustrated by my family members. At a time, I stopped visiting family members because they were always advising me to find something better. To them, I was wasting my time and it was high time I tried other things. I felt it was better I stop visiting because I didn’t want to leave music.”

Featuring in a recent episode of the ‘Tea With Tay’ podcast, the 35-year-old songstress opened up about how she met Adekunle Gold, her husband.

She went on to say that she met her husband as a graphics designer and had no idea “he was singing”.

“When I first met my husband, I did not know he was singing. Because I already said I cannot marry a singer. He used to do this King of Photoshop. I have never heard him sing up till that time. I think he was even a fan,” she said.

“He had sent me a message on Facebook. I never saw it. I still have not replied. I sensed that it was him that would be good for me.”

But what would we be without our dreams, I have long given up planning my life, whatever the gods bring, I thank them and go. It is our lot, it is God’s plan and we are grateful, at least we are not an unmarked grave at the cemetery.”
