I was popular, didn’t have money – 9ice

I was popular, didn’t have money 9ice – Nigerian singer, Alexander Adegbola Akande, better known as 9ice, has revealed that when he started his music career he was famous but broke. The ‘Gongo Aso’ crooner disclosed this in the latest episode of Chart with Sims podcast.

He said, “Don’t become popular o, make
money. When I started, I was popular but I didn’t have money.”

He added that money finally started coming after he put in works.


9ice said, “The money didn’t just come in, I had to do the right thing. As at then we were depending so much on Alaba International Market. Then we didn’t have Facebook, Instagram and the rest. If you want your song to be popular in Kaduna, you have to go to Kaduna to do a radio interview. You have to be
there for people to see you.”

“So, when the money started coming was when we put in the hustle and we marketed the brand by doing print interviews like newspapers, magazines; putting your face out there. I mean, there are sometimes people have good songs and they [fans] don’t even know
what you look like.

“I think it is not just about getting popular. But putting your brand out there. Market it, promote it. Let your face be known and the money aspect will come later,” he added.
