Popular Nigerian singer, Iyanya has made a startling revelation about himself.
The singer revealed that in 2021, he actually had to beg to be able to perform in some shows just to be seen.
Iyanya used to be one of Nigeria’s biggest stars, having released smash-hits like Kukere and Sexy Mama among others. However, his shine diminished after falling out with his friend and record label mate, Ubi Franklin.
Over the years, he endured bouts of obscurity as other superstar overshadowed him. In fact, Iyanya now claims that in 2021, he performed at only three shows.
He even had to beg to perform in two of those shows.
However, he also revealed that things have since changed for him as he now wakes up everyday to alerts for shows. He added that he hasn’t had this kind of busy December since 2017.
He wrote: “Last year December 2021, I performed at 3 shows, one paid and I begged to perform at 2 just to be seen.
“2022 December, I wake up and everyday to alerts for shows, haven’t had this kind of busy December since 2017.
“20+ shows in on month.
“God Thank you
“And to my fans and everyone who streamed my music this year, God Bless you.
“There’s got to be more and I promise 2023 will be a better year for everyone who has supported me this year.
“We will definitely have a great 2023.”
