“How Olamide helped me when I left E.M.E and was homeless” Skales spills, opens up on his marriage and personal life (Video)


Nigerian rapper Skales, whose real name is John Njeng-Njeng, has shared how Olamide’s music altered his life.

In an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Skales described how he lost all of his money after leaving the Banky W-run record company E.ME.

He claimed that even though his agreement with the label had ended, they would not renew it because he wasn’t performing effectively for the company.

After that, Skales admitted, he lost his job and went broke, but a call from Olamide turned his life around.

At that time, he had released his hit song, Shake Body, and Olamide who liked the song reached out to him to inquire when he was releasing the video.

Skales stated that he explained his situation to Olamide and he sent him money for the video. The music video became a hit and marked the beginning of a turnaround for him.

“My deal with them was done and they refused to continue because I wasn’t doing well at that time.

Olamide contacted me and said he loved one of my songs, Shake Body, and asked if I wasn’t going to shoot the video. I told him I was homeless and couldn’t possibly shoot a video and he sent me money. My God turned my life around after that video shoot”.

Speaking on his marriage, Skales took accountability for bringing his marital issues online.

He stated that he and his wife had a misunderstanding and it was the wrong timing. He added that someone was fueling the fire between them.

But now, the rapper wants to build a new family and hopes to have a big family.

“There was a misunderstanding and it was wrong timing. I was wrong but what the person did added fuel to the fire.

I want to build a family cause growing up as a kid I never experienced what a real family is like. Hopefully, it’s a big family but if it’s a small one I don’t mind. I want to create my own family”.

Touching on his father, Skales claimed he doesn’t know his father as he doesn’t know what he looks like.

Though he tried asking his mum before her demise, he couldn’t because he didn’t want to upset her.

“That’s one mystery I have been unable to solve, I don’t know my da. I don’t even know who my dad looks like I tried asking my mum cause I love my mum and hate when she is sad. So I feel like it’s going to make her sad, and I never asked. But now, I regret it cause my mum is no more. I don’t know what happened”.
