Popular Nigerian singer Akinyibi Ahmed, who is better known as Bella Shmurda, has revealed he is not doing music to “impress or compete” with anyone.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, the music star said he is “hustling” to make things better for his family.
“Came from humble families, old houses and small towns with sad stories. I’m legit not hustling to impress or compete with anyone out here. I changed the storyline already, won the battles my parents never won. Lots of love to everyone, more appreciation to my family,” he said.
In October, Shmurda recounted how he spent money unwisely during the early stage of his career.
“I used to have money, like enough money but I rushed things. As I was getting the money, I was just buying a lot of things; things I wouldn’t eventually need,” he had said.
“So at this point, as I’m getting new money I have to think about every move I want to take. There were up to 10 friends staying with me then in a four bedrooms apartment and we would still carry women.
“Then I wanted to get a car, I bought three cars at once because if I want to go out I would want my boys to fill up another so we can be in a convoy. I went to the club one day, I spent N2 million in the club.
“Now, I can still spend N2 million in a day but it should be something I can account for.”
