Wave making musician, Oritse Femi is not doing badly at the moment. He has grown to become one of the sought after singers. Now, the big boy artiste has stepped up by getting himself a ‘tear rubber’ Range Rover SUV. He also moved into his multimillion palatial home in Lekki, Lagos.
Seeing his huge automatic progress , tongues started wagging that the ‘Double Wahala’ star might have devised a diabolical means of ‘making’ it big in the entertainment circuit.
The singer who is now neighbour to other A-list artistes such as D’banj, Don Jazzy, among many other acts in Lekki, dismissed the rumour, explaining that his latest acquisitions were from proceeds of shows he headlined both locally and internationally.
“I headline several shows both home and abroad. There is hardly a show you would go to right now that my name is not on the poster. It is through hard work and I thank
God. Although I cannot disclose how much I got the car and the house, I was able to get the money from the shows I headline,” he said.
“I am popular now due to hard work and I am always in the studio. After my song, Mercy of the Lord, with Da Grin, I tried my best to bring out a better song but I was unlucky to get any. I had to go back to the drawing board to create the kind of sound people would like.
“I did not go to Satan to succeed, it is not possible. I advise many of my childhood friends that to make it in life, you have to work hard. I say this because some of them may believe the rumour that I did juju, no. It is through hard work. Hard work pays and nobody should do juju. It is my hard work that is paying off,” he said.tweet Follow @@metrolens1
