Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Olakira has opened up on how he transitioned from a gospel singer into secular music.
In an interview with TVC, Olakira revealed that he got expelled from his church after sleeping with four female members of the church.
According to him, the expulsion made him fall into depression and in a bid to get out of it, he went through therapy.
“I had my own issues as well. I got depressed at some point. I was unable to focus at some point. Everybody has their own thing.
I was a gospel artist some years back. And I had some experiences with ladies. I was in the choir and I had stuff with about four choristers and I was sacked from the church. You know when you sing in church and you are playing keyboard people get inspired. And, when I came into the secular world, the whole thing was just crowded. It was a lot. I went for therapy. I needed to get out of that space because it was very distracting.
I was raised by a single mother. So, I feel more comfortable around ladies than guys”.
