Recalled that the skilled artist who combat a psychological sickness a few years back, which saw him disoriented in many ways, in an interview with Pulse Nigeria, Lil Kesh said;
“It creeped up on me, bro [scoffs]. I would have lucid moments of clarity and then some dark times,” he says. “I got it all wrong because I kept going into the studio to recreate ‘that guy.’ Not just the ‘Y.A.G.I guy,’ but that era.”
“I would go into the studio to create hits and that was wrong. When I had those hits, I didn’t go into the studio to create hits, I just created them because of a good beat or great inspiration.” he continues, “Fame changes people, but we have to handle things better.”
According to him, he was a private person, and sharing such personal issues with people was another dilemma for him, her said; “After that conversation and examining myself, I now realize that it was because I blew up way too early. I got my first record deal at 19 and 20,” he continues. “I also had some of the biggest songs in the country. There were the relationships that I got in at that age and the fame as well – fame comes with a price.”
“I think exerting myself to get all those songs made me feel exhausted at that age. It’s nobody’s fault that I felt that pressure, it comes with the life I chose,” he confessed. “Baddo did try to protect me, but I also branched out on my own when I was 21 or 22.”
