A rising musician, known by his stage name Shallipopi, recently shared how his experience of extreme hunger motivated him to start earning money.
During a podcast interview with Hip Hop artist Odumodublck on the Turntable podcast, Shallipopi revealed that there was a time when he was so financially broke that he survived on nothing but garri for ten consecutive days.
It was during this period of struggle that he began to deeply contemplate his life.
When Odumodu asked about the significant event that pushed him towards success, Shallipopi recalled the dire circumstances of his past.
He mentioned how the 10-day garri ordeal awakened him to the realization that he needed to work hard in order to achieve success in life.
“Make you just taste garri for like 10 straight days, then you go rethink your life. You go blow by force,” the 23-year-old singer said.
