Meanwhile, he has recorded a song using his cousin’s piano in late December, 2015 and he shared it on social media late January 2016 and Davido saw it on February 1. Then he followed him and sent him a direct message via Twitter. He later followed him on Instagram and asked if he can do more than playing the keyboard. He then sent Davido some of the songs he’s done. He picked on one that he recorded while still in school and told him ‘guy I am signing you on’.
