Nigerian singer and former Five Star act, Skiibii headlined an event yesterday at Ekiti State University, however one of the highlight of the event was his uncelebrated entry into the University.
According to a student of the school who shared a video of Skiibii who could be spotted standing on the rooftop of his car, the singer is yet to ‘blow’ as no one hailed him after he rode into the campus. Here’s what he wrote;
Imagine from Osekita junction through Satellite @Ekiti State University Campus, there was no student turning up to hail or even create a scene while Skiibii was coming tru…I thought he was a superstar…Gee!! Get better IP, I swear you never blow
Skiibii left five-star music group after spending 3 years at the record label led by E-money, to launch his own record label, ‘More Grace Music World’ early this year. Skiibii made headlines in August 2015 when he was unveiled in August 2015 after faking his own death. He is credited with songs like ‘Sampu’, ‘Ah Skiibii’ and ‘London’ among others.
Confirming his exit from the label, Kcee wrote on Instagram: ‘My brother, my friend… It’s been an amazing journey with you as part of the Five Star Family all these years. As you proceed and go forth as a man on your own, the entire Five Star Music family wishes you well and we’ll be here for you to support you as always. @skiibii God’s blessings on you we love you @iam_emoney1@kceenews@fivestarmusicng@fivestarfoundation
In an interview weeks later, he disclosed why he left to set up his own record label. In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the former Five star act said;
“If you have a girlfriend, it is normal for both of you to fight once in a while. Blood brothers fight each other too. I didn’t leave Five Star because I wasn’t treated well. I just felt it was time for me to do things on my own. Now, I don’t need anyone’s confirmation before I put out new songs.”
“I was not scared leaving Five Star as I had thought over the decision carefully. I have always wanted to run my own record company, even before I joined Kcee, but I needed to start from somewhere. Five Star Music was like a college for me; I went to school and I graduated. We still talk like we used to; the only difference is that I am now my own boss.”
