Mavin Records star Reekado Banks has revealed he was on the verge of quitting music shortly before music mogul Don Jazzy picked him up via Twitter. The Unilag graduate in an interview with Punch says he had decided to leave music alone, focus on his education andhopefully get a decent job after graduation.“Two years ago, I wanted to quit music. I did not know I would be famous. At that point in my life, I was fed up because everything was not working right for me and it was very tiring. I felt like I was wasting my time doing music and it seemed that everything was working against me. I was very frustrated at the period and it was a very difficult time for me. I was in school and I had it on mind to face my studies squarely and hopefully, get a job later in life. When I was about to give up, I told myself to give music one more chance and God performed a miracle. It is God’s grace that helped me forge ahead,” he said. Recounting how he was signed by Don Jazzy via Twitter, he said “Don Jazzy sent out a message on the Internet that people should send a demo of their songs to him. Luckily for me, my brother sent mine to him. Ironically, my brother did not tell me because at the time, we were not on talking terms but he still did that for me regardless. To cut the long story short my song was picked out of 5,000 entries,” the singer said.
Reekado Banks added that one of his lifelong dream is to own a house where he can eat in the toilet.
