My mum sold fruits, gave me money for studio session – Singer Crayon



Young music act, Charles Chibueze Chukwu, better known as Crayon, has recounted his journey to stardom and some of the challenges he faced.

He revealed that signing a deal with Mavin Records enabled him to uplift his family as he was able to stop his mum from selling from fruits in Iyana Oba, Lagos.

Crayon, who is the first child of his family, also revealed that she was very supportive and even gave him money for studio sessions.

Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, the Ijo Laba Laba crooner said it was not always his dream to go into music, but his father somewhat sparked the interest.

According to Crayon, his dad used to sell records and MC events he would often take some of the CDs, listen to them and try to mimic artistes.

He said that when he reached 12 to 13 years of age, he wanted to be venture into music, so he joined the choir in church, but due to stage fright he quit.

Meanwhile he had also revealed that h wrote JAMB five times and struggled to gain admission to a tertiary institution for years before before delving into entertainment.

He said; “It has been amazing and beautiful to see because I have been working over the years and now, I am now finally getting the recognition that I deserve. So, it (recognition) is beautiful to see – among my fans, team, and everybody that knows me personally.

“I started making music like 2016 officially. I wasn’t in school then but trying to get into the university. I wrote JAMB five times.”

Speaking further, he said that the challenges he had with gaining admission were not particularly due to his leel of intelligence.

“For the first two times, I failed; the rest three times, I passed. I kept going to the school to lay complaints and ask: ‘What’s up?’ It (gaining admission) wasn’t just happening for me. I feel like it was God’s way of redirecting me.

“Even before I started making music, I used to be a footballer. I like football a lot – I used to play football, go to training, academies, and stuff like that,” he added.
