Kcee: I brought Iyanya to hustle in Lagos, I bought his first flight ticket


Kcee, a Nigerian highlife and Afropop musician, has disclosed that he was responsible for bringing Iyanya to Lagos and accommodating him.


In a recent episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, Kcee revealed that he hosted the ‘Ur Waist’ crooner for six years. Kcee also revealed that he discovered Skiibii’s ability and launched him into the spotlight.


“I also brought Skibii to the music industry. Skibii is grateful to me for that till today. When I was recording ‘Ojapiano,’ Skibii was in the studio with me. He was a co-writer of the song. We visit each other always. We are still like father and son.


“When I saw Skibii I was like, ‘I love this guy. I’m going to work with him.’ Even when he wasn’t popping, I always tell him, ‘Look into my eyes, you’re gonna blow. I don’t know how, I don’t know when, but you are a star. So that gave him a lot of confidence. I am that guy that know how to identify talent. When I see it, I know. And I would support.”
