I was in music industry before Oxlade, Fireboy — Spyro

Afrobeats sensation Oludipe Oluwasanmi David, popularly known as Spyro, has revealed that he got into the music industry before his colleagues, Oxlade and Fireboy.

Speaking in the latest episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, the 'Who is your Guy' crooner who recently broke into the limelight expressed shock over Fireboy and Oxlade's launch into stardom before him.

The singer added that he was happy for his two fellow singers but was also pained because he got into the industry before them. 

Spyro further revealed that he collaborated with popular Nigerian singers Davido and Mayorkun in 2018.

AllNews Nigeria found that Spyro featured the music stars on the remix of his song 'Funke'.

According to him, he thought the collaboration with the popular Nigerian singers would launch him to stardom.

He, however, noted that his delayed success was God's way of showing him it is not about talent but Goby His grace".

Spyro said: “I paid for my song to be on NotJustOkay which was a big platform back then. Once you hear their voice tag on a song, the song don blow. So, I thought that [I would blow].

“So when Fireboy come blow, I was like, ‘Eh! Fireboy blow before me? God, me I still dey…’ And all those times, God was teaching me that it’s not about my talent but by his grace.

“Oxlade too. I mean, before Oxlade blew, na me… Eh God! Oxlade was in my show in 2018. I also brought Davido and Mayorkun for the song. I had a song with Davido and Mayorkun in 2018. I thought that the song would blow me.

“I would post Oxlade on my social media pages and urge fans to watch out for him. And he would come to my DM to appreciate me. Then he just blew before me. I was like, ‘God, what is going on?’

“Na Oxlade and Fireboy blow na im pain me pass. No be say pain but it triggered me. I am happy that they blew at the point they blew but these are people that I was in the industry before them. I was like, ‘God, what is going on?’ So, it was so painful for me. It was frustrating. I would cry. I would struggle with God.”
