He said: “I lost N500 million in court cases and a few other things I was facing at the time I refused to listen to God’s call. My music career went down so bad that I couldn’t understand what was going on.

“My record label that used to love me deeply suddenly turned their backs on me. I started making wrong investments, the list is endless.

“All these happened just because I refused to answer the call of God. I remember I was coming from an event in Sheraton Hotel here in Abuja and I had a fatal accident.
