Skales who was once signed to EME, disclosed that Praiz was one of those who believed in him when he started his career and even went ahead to produce his first song for N4,000. He concluded by saying that Praiz still supports him till date and which is why he turned up for the concert sponsored by MTN, which saw students go back home with exciting gifts like mobile phones, laptops, steam irons, electric kettles and even an acoustic guitar.
Singers who turned up for Nigerian R&B sensation, Praiz’s free concert at the Staff School Hall in Unilag on Friday, March 23rd, 2018, include; Praiz, Skales, Ajebutter22, IllBliss, Shaydee, BOJ and many others.

This is not the only time Skales has made a stunning revelation of all that happened at the start of his music career, when it seems he had no one. In tweets he shared in 2017, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng also known as Skales revealed that Olamide Adedeji alias ‘Badoo’ was the one who sponsored his ‘Shake body’ music video, and since then his life has not been the same.
Skales said this in appreciation of Olamide’s funding of his video. In response to his tweet, Olamide playfully chastised the shake body crooner, over revealing what was supposed to be a secret between them.
Skales wrote: “Guys I’ve been holding this back for so long but I gotta let the world know @olamide_YBNL …actually gave me cash to shoot ‘shakebody’ vid”
“Back then because I was super broke and couldn’t afford to shoot a video for that song I will neva forget it bro, thanks a lot, bro @olamide_YBNL
“And since then my life has never been the same….GOD BLESS ALL THE REAL AND TRUE ONES OUT THERE.”
The ‘Shake Body’ track was a lead single in his debut album, ‘Man Of The Year’. Skales has recorded over 200 songs and collaborated with numerous artists, including eLDee, Jeremiah Gyang, Banky W. and Knighthouse.
