The winner of MTN Project Fame season six Olawale Ojo has reportedly paused his musical career to become a cab driver.
This was made known by Tope Delano, a writer, who had a sit and talk with the reality show winner and posted the narrative on Instagram.
Ojo told Delano that he decided to take on the cab-driving job in order to raise enough money to fund his studio sessions.
It was learnt that Olawale Ojo, as the winner of the 2013 Project Fame, had received the sum of N5 million, an SUV and a recording contract.
On September 26, 2014, he released his first album ‘Almost Famous’.
He worked with A-list producers and artists like Lil Kesh, Skales and Tiwa Savage on the album.
The singer revealed in the interview that the entertainment industry is not as rosy as perceived and he had to look for an alternative to make money and also sponsor his studio sessions.
Olawale Ojo is a graduate of Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH).
topedelano PROJECT FAME WINNER TURNS CAB DRIVER …. a lot of people ave been wondering where fan fav mtn pf winner Olawale has been hiding. The crowd pleasing crooner who held our hearts to ransom during his remarkable pf run disappeared almost as fast as he came into lime light.Majority of us have had to deal with extremely difficult decisions and as God would have it, rose above it all. I met Olawale a couple of weeks ago and at first he did not want to grant the interview but eventually did. I know alot of us have so many questions as to how he ended up here and I promise you, all that was dealt with in the full video. I listened to his latest song.
#blessing and guys, Olawale is way better than he was in the house. Many may slam him, say all sorts but we should all RESPECT this king for damning the odds and chosing to do what he is doing now to ensure that there is food on the table. Work is work and you have my utmost respect for this. Thank you @olawalesings for being brave enough to share your story and reminding the world about self worth and work. All I ask, is that we all watch, learn and repost for as many to learn because this man shook a lot of tables! #projectfame
