I won’t say I got their support on a platter of gold because I had to keep up with my studies. I was able to convince them that music will not take away my attitude towards education.
However, they always love to see me happy especially when it is something I have a passion for.
They have always supported me because right from my primary school I have always had this thing for music, rhythm and art.
They dressed me up and bought me stuffs so that I can participate in social activities in school and they were there to give me support when I needed it.
Korede Bello is worth being celebrated as he has made Festac and Amuwo Odofin Proud in his endeavours.
