Nigerian singer and rapper, Ololade ‘Lil Kesh’ Keshinro, says his greatest achievement so far in his music career is making his parents proud and leaving the ghetto.
Lil Kesh who was recently bashed over his controversial song ‘Logo Benz’ told Taylor Live Magazine that he didn’t know that he would become a professional singer.
When queried about his greatest achievement in music, he said: “The fact that I made my parents proud, regardless of how difficult it was to make it out of the ghetto is my greatest achievement.”
On how he kicked off his music career, he said he started out as a chorister in church.
“Did I know I’ll become a professional singer? No. But I started music at a very young age as a chorister in church, playing the drums and talking drums.
“My surrounding played a major role in my sense of creativity which is why I often talk about my everyday struggle and hardship I faced before my life turned around.”
Lil Kesh recently took out time to explain the true meaning of his ‘Logo Benz’ tune which many believe promotes money rituals
“Logo Benz was inspired by things we saw on social media and in our environment. One of the trending news now is how people are stealing pants for money rituals. One of those things they buy with the money is Benz cars. We thought we should do a song about it and create awareness; this is what we have been doing as musicians. But I guess people got the wrong impression. When it came out, it was heavily criticised and people felt we were promoting money rituals. I understood why it happened because some parts of the lyrics were not too clear. If we had looked for a better way to put the story out there, people would have understood it better”, he told Punch..
