‘I discovered my musical talent while working in motor park’ – Daddy Showkey


Veteran Nigerian singer, John Odafe Asiemo, aka Daddy Showkey, has revealed that he discovered his musical talent while working in a motor park.

The ‘Ghetto Soldier’ crooner disclosed this in a recent episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast.

“I was working in the motor park as a ticketer when someone told me I have a good voice and that I should consider becoming a musician,” he recalled.

“At first, I was sceptical because I didn’t know how to sing but when I attempted it, I discovered that everyone liked it so that was how I became a musician.”

On the controversy of young artists denying music legends contributions to the success of their careers, Daddy Showkey said he wasn’t interested in giving himself any accolades for paving the way for young artists.

He added that it is left for the young artists who benefited from his legacy to admit it
