Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Oludipe Oluwasanmi David, better known as Spyro has disclosed that he obtained a bank loan to finance his song with Mayorkun and Davido.
The rising artiste featured Omo Baba Olowo and Mayorkun on a single titled ‘Funke’ in 2018, but the commercial success of the song was short-lived.
Spyro said in a recent interview with Cool FM that he struggled for three years to pay back the debt.
The “Who’s Your Guy” crooner said that the collaboration propelled him into the public eye, but fell off after the song lost the initial momentum.
“When I dropped ‘Funke’ and the song popped. I had David [Davido], I had Mayorkun on the song. And after dropping ‘Funke’ and my career still went down, I’m like, ‘Oh! Am I ever gonna rise again?’
I popped but I just came down because there was no structure. There was nothing. I took a loan from the bank to finance that particular record while I was still signed to Upfront & Personal. When that period passed, I now had to start paying for the loan. That was really difficult because I paid for like three years.”
