Few weeks back, social media was treated to a war of words between rapper Phyno and social media celebrity Hushpuppi, as both came at each other in no nice way.
Phyno, who lambasted Hushpuppi, saying he has no clear means of livelihood yet goes online to show off his wealth again commented on the issue during an interview with Sunday Scoop.
“It is very childish to brag about what I have. I care more about touching lives in positive ways. It is not really about how much you have in your bank account but how many people’s lives you have made better. The good thing is that I have a track record and people know what I do. So it doesn’t really make sense for me to be exchanging words with someone who just came from nowhere and has no credibility whatsoever.”
On how his career:
“I am happy for how far I have come. My father never wanted me to become an artiste because he felt it wasn’t a good profession. But I decided to stick to my guns and I have proved that one can also have a good life with music. Now, people call on me to mentor their children and that couldn’t have happened years ago. Nigerian music has gone global and the future looks even brighter.”
