According to writer Tope Delano, who sat down for an interview with the singer, the vocal powerhouse is now a cab driver who decided on the job to be able to fund his studio session as well as pursue his dreams.
Such a brave young man.
Read excerpts from his chat with Tope Delano below:
“a lot of people have been wondering where fan fav mtn of winner Olawale has been hiding. The crowd-pleasing crooner who held our hearts to ransom during his remarkable pf run disappeared almost as fast as he came into limelight. Majority of us have had to deal with extremely difficult decisions and as God would have it, rose above it all.
I met Olawale a couple of weeks ago and at first, he did not want to grant the interview but eventually did.
I know a lot of us to have so many questions as to how he ended up here and I promise you, all that was dealt with in the full video. I listened to his latest song #blessing and guys, Olawale is way better than when he was in the house.
Many may slam him, say all sorts but we should all RESPECT this king for damning the odds and choosing to do what he is doing now to ensure that there is food on the table. Work is work and you have my utmost respect for this.
Thank you @olawalesings for being brave enough to share your story and reminding the world about self-worth and work. All I ask is that we all watch, learn and report for as many to learn because this man shook a lot of tables that has been long overdue ”
