Speaking in the latest episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, DesTalker said: “I graduated with a degree in Public Administration but couldn’t get a job. So I started doing okada [commercial motorcyclist]. But the truth is, I already had it on my mind that I didn’t want to work for anybody. You must have a blueprint of what you want to become even though the country has its own blueprint waiting for you.

“I was struggling. It wasn’t easy. There were a lot of distractions and it got to a point where I was suicidal. I attempted suicide three times. I think nobody has heard this part of me. That was when I realized that even I couldn’t take my life. I now believe that when you’re suicidal, your miracle is close. The devil doesn’t just want you to attain it. The closer you are to your destiny, the more difficult the challenges. That was my story.”
