Fast rising rapper, Zayo has said that some girls and other fellow students in his school, Tai Solarin University of Education, TASUED, who ignored, insulted and pelted him with sachet water in the past during musical performances, are now showing love and run after him as his fortunes in the Nigeria’s burgeoning entertainment industry has changed.
Zayo disclosed this recently in a chat, stating that since he won the KOGA Open Mic reality show last year, he has ever since become the toast of girls in his school.
“Interestingly, girls who never used to send me before, are now hailing me. They are now checking me out, greet me at school and even beg to add me on Blackberry Messenger. It is like a case of rejected stone becoming the chief corner stone’. All thanks to God and Koga for changing my story,” he said.
Zayo’s journey to stardom started when he was invited by a friend for the Koga open house audition which he could not make until the last day due to financial constraints. Unfortunately, while his friend was evicted, he moved to the next round and next round until he emerged winner.
He won the KOGA-organized talent hunt show and is currently signed to Koga Entertainment under which he has released three singles (Mercy, Coloured and Ewo Omo).
At the moment, he is working on a collaboration song with Sir Shina Peters and an album is expected from him towards the end of next year.
Zayo, whose real name is Raheem Adeyemi, is a final year student of Mathematics at the university. He claims to be living his dreams.
