Nigerian singer Bella Shmurda has revealed that at a point, he wished he was signed into rapper Olamide's record label ‘YBNL’.
Speaking with Korty on her web series ‘Flow With Korty’, Bella Shmurda said everything was rough for him at that time.
He mentioned that he didn't know who to ask about how things are done in the music industry and there was nobody to put him through.
“At a point, I wished Olamide signed me 'cause everything was just rough for me.
"I (didn’t) know who to really ask, nobody to put me through,” he said.
Having spent over three years in the music industry, Bella Shmurda noted how he has grown.
He claims that the knowledge he currently possesses would have improved him had he learned it earlier.
“At least I know some things now, if I’d known then, I think I will be better off”.
Bella Shmurda gained prominence in 2019 when he released the remix of his debut single ‘Vision 2020’ featuring indigenous rapper, Olamide.
He originally dropped the song in 2018 but it was not too recognized until the remix.
Prior to his fame, he did a lot of freestyles which he uploaded on his social media handles until one of his works got noticed by the YBNL boss.
He also got featured on Olamide’s ‘Triumphant’ which is off his 2020 album ‘Carpe Diem’.
