‘I didn’t know anybody when I came to Lagos’- Efe, Big Brother Naija winner 2017
Winner of Big Brother Naija 2017, Efe Ejeba has opened up on life before BBNaija. The based on logistics rapper said he didn’t know anyone when he came to Lagos.According to him, When he finished his final year exams, he came to Lagos and gathered the money he made in Jos to rent an apartment.
He made this known while speaking in an interview with The Nation. According to him:” I’m just someone that has perseverance. I don’t give up. I finished my final year exams and in about two weeks, I packed my bags and came to Lagos. I was just waiting for school to finish. My mother wanted me to go to school and I gave her the certificate and took a walk. So, I came to Lagos, not knowing anybody. I gathered the money I made from my music in Jos and used it to pay for house rent and started life. I would be at home for one week atimes, I won’t go out because I didn’t know anybody in Lagos.
“I just had that drive, that belief that one day, it would happen. I didn’t know how it would happen but today that is how it is. For me, I just feel that every youth should keep doing what they know how to do best and stay focus. That’s why I have three things as my mantra – You gotta believe in God, number two, believe in yourself and number three, you die put”.
When asked what he has been doing before BBNaija, he said:”It’s music. Music has been what I’ve been doing for the past seven years. I started recording in 2010 and while I was in Jos. I left Jos as an elite artiste but the hunger for more brought me to Lagos in 2015. So, as Big Brother came, I said, ‘this is a big platform to showcase myself.’ If I didn’t go on Big Brother and I came here, no one would answer me”.
