The father of three children made this known in a recent Instagram Live chat with Grammy Museum.

According to him;

“Coming from Atlanta and just hanging around them inspired him.

“I remember seeing them with Jay-Z and Kanye West in a room and honestly, they had a lot to do with me wanting to do music even though my father has also been a mentor.”

“In the early stage of my career, I was like a one-man-band. I made the beat for the first single and equally recorded the song myself.

“I mixed and mastered Dami Duro myself. When I was getting bigger, I could no longer do everything myself.

“Now, I have producers and songwriters who I work with. I now believe in collective efforts.

“The business side of everything is important. Music is just about 30 or 40 percent”.

He further stated that Going back to school helped him to concentrate, adding that it was something he also had to do for his father.

His words;

“It wasn’t that I wanted to rebel. I was just in love with music.

“I could not concentrate on something else.

“I was slacking in school and other things I wasn’t supposed to slack in because of my love for music.

“I had to fight for it. It’s what I knew I was destined to do.

“I was learning how to record, so I was slacking in other things. Music took over me”.
