Popular Nigerian singer, Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, professionally known as Iyanya, has recounted how his colleague Kcee generously provided him with accommodation for two years.
Iyanya, who disclosed this during a recent interview with Naija FM 102.7 in Lagos, also revealed that it was Kcee who purchased his first flight ticket.
“Kcee was the person who bought me my first flight ticket from Calabar to Lagos, and I stayed with him for two years. So, it was Kcee who possessed the better dancing skills, I’m telling you since you don’t want to listen. We were together this morning before I came for this interview,” he said.
A while ago, Iyanya took to Twitter to express gratitude to God for turning his career around for the better in 2022.
The “Kukure” crooner, in a series of tweets shared on Wednesday, December 14, recounted how he struggled to land shows in December 2021, and even to had to beg to perform at shows just to get visibility.
Fast forward to 2022, Iyanya said he has over 20 shows to perform at in December alone, and this is the busiest December he has had since his big break years ago.
He further appreciated God for the huge breakthrough, and some of his colleagues who played a role in his comeback.
The “Your waist” singer wrote,
“2022 December, I wake up and everyday to alerts for shows, haven’t had this kind of busy december since 2017.
20+ shows in one month.
