Winner of the Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ edition Whitemoney has pleaded with critics of his music career to support him as there is no going back on his choice of being in the music industry.
In a recent interview with media personality, Olamide Famuwagun, Whitemoney said music is a passion for him but understands that many of his fans want him to open a restaurant.
Recall Whitemoney displayed his cooking skills during the reality TV show which many speculated was a strategy to win the show.
Many people had thought that after the BBNaija show ended, Whitemoney would probably turn into a celebrity chef with numerous restaurants but he dashed the hope of many as he chose music.
Whitemoney has released two songs since his exit from the show but many Nigerians have continued to mock him, urging him to quit music.
However, Whitemoney in the latest interviews said he has no doubt about his music career and is still optimistic that he would win the Grammy someday.
The reality TV star added that he would continue to chase his passion because he doesn’t want to get old and regrets not doing what he loves.
Excerpt from the interview read:
Why do you think people were surprised when you decided to go into music?
“This is because everyone (fans) wants me to cook, they don’t want me to sing or rather they didn’t know I will take music seriously but I’m chasing my passion and what I love. I don’t want to be the guy that gets old and regrets not doing what he loves. I’m just doing me and I’m happy”.
“People need to understand that we are different with different unique sounds. I have never had doubt in myself or my career because one day, I will win the Grammy. You can’t get it right at once or all the time. That’s why constructive criticism is part of the process. But when it’s not, I ignore it because the more you criticize, the more God blesses me and I cash out”.
