Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, aka Bella Shmurda, has lamented over his lavishing money on friends by feeding them, earlier when he had money.
The singer, in a recent interview, bemoaned his flashy expenses as he promised himself to make better financial decisions.
Speaking on how he used to spend extravagantly, Bella Shmurda revealed that he used to live with ten friends with whom he financed their daily lives.
He, however, spoke about turning a new leaf with his future income while promising to leave behind the days of spending on unwarranted lives.
He rose to prominence with the release of the song “Vision 2020”, and a follow-up remix which featured Nigeria rapper Olamide.
TheNewsGuru.com recalls that the Afrobeat singer, had revealed that when he started doing music, he knew nothing about the Nigerian music industry.
During an interview with YouTuber, Korty on her web series ‘Flow with Korty’, he noted that he once wished YBNL boss, Olamide signed him to his record label.
He stated that this was because he needed someone to put him through the nitty gritty of the career path he was about to venture into.
In his words: “I didn’t study the market. I didn’t study anything. In fact, at that point I didn’t know anything about music really. All I just know is that I can sing.
“At a point, I wished Olamide signed me because everything was just rough for me. I didn’t know who to really ask. Nobody to really put me through.”
Bella Shmurda asserted that he would have been better off if he knew the things he knows now.
“At least, I know some things now that if I had known then, I think I’ll be better off,” he added.
