“My rise to fame was so sudden and I wasn’t ready” – Joeboy


Popular Nigerian singer, Joseph Akinwale, popularly known as Joeboy has revealed that he wasn’t prepared for the life of a celebrity, even when he became famous.

The 26-year-old musician claimed that it was unexpected that his popular song, “Baby,” received a lot of airplay both domestically and abroad just three months after it was released.

During their conversation on the most recent edition of the Afrobeats Intelligence Podcast, Joeboy said that, when he first rose to fame, he had no idea that anybody would ever know him.

Joeboy said that his newfound celebrity forced him to leave his area in order to adjust to his new position.

The singer said:

“I wasn’t ready when ‘Baby’ blew. I had to adapt to get used to fame. It was so sudden. I dropped the song [‘Baby’] in March [2019], and by June I was already doing shows in countries I thought they don’t listen to Nigerian music. Countries like Tanzania, and Uganda. In three months!”

In other news, Pero Adeniyi, the first baby mama of popular singer, 2Face has taken to social media to show off the lovely presents she received from her partner on Valentine’s Day.
