Nigerian rapper Olamide has recounted his experience growing up in Bariga axis of Lagos State motivated him to hustle hard.

Speaking in a recent interview with The Guardian UK, he said, “Surviving was hard. Bariga was not far from the other slums you see across the world, from Mumbai to New York and London – life in the ghetto is almost always the same everywhere.

There were days when being able to afford three square meals was a big deal for my family. All of that motivated me to hustle hard – I wanted to see the whole world and experience different cultures from what I grew up seeing.”
