The popular singer, Sulaimon Shekoni Solomon, better known as Khaid, has recounted how he begged colleague, Rema to show his freestyle video to music executive, Don Jazzy during his days as a struggling artist in a bid to get signed to Mavin Records.
He said he was so desperate that he was willing to give Rema his first N1 million if he would have facilitated his record deal with Mavin but he never saw his messages.
Khaid, who is now signed to comedian, Sydney Talker’s imprint, Neville Records, disclosed this in the latest episode of the Zero Conditions podcast.
He said, “Rema if you are seeing this, please take heart. I actually went to Rema’s [Instagram] DM one day with my old account and sent my freestyle video to him. I said, ‘Bro, I know that you trap like me. Please, help me show this video to Don Jazzy. Let him sign me so that we will be in the same record label.’
“He didn’t see the message. At that time, I was texting him with all emotions in me, bro. I was texting him with prayers. I was willing to give him my first 1 million.”
