In an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, the singer revealed that while working tirelessly to provide for her family, her boss unexpectedly became her “destiny helper” after overhearing her singing while on the job.

“I used to work in an ice cream store. I didn’t want to sit down and say I have a passion for music and wait for Don Jazzy to come and sign me in my house. I had to feed my siblings and my mother,” she explained.

Describing the pivotal moment that changed her life, the singer said, “This particular day, I was at the back, singing and preparing the ice cream so I could pour it inside the machine then my boss walked in and asked who was singing, and they all screamed Guchi.

“So he said, I like your boldness and then put his hand in his pocket. I thought he was about to give me a tip I would use to go home that day but he brought out a card. I felt so disappointed. I didn’t know that was my destiny helper.”

Guchi is known for the hit single, ‘Jennifer’. Her other songs are Notice Me, Blood Tonic, I swear, and Leave Me Now.
