In an interview with TheNative, a Nigerian music magazine, the superstar acknowledged that he occasionally lost his voice prior to stage appearances.
The singer acknowledged that he needed to learn how to handle the situation and ensure that it did not affect his music. The singer’s hazy and muffled voice has always been criticized.
He went on by expressing that eventually, his primary care physician had offered him guidance to keep away from superfluous verbal correspondence.
“Because my voice is already husky, it is so annoying when it goes. I like to put myself out there and I talk a great deal, so when I can’t talk, it’s irritating.
“It’s so uncomfortable when I have a show and my voice is not back, and I’m impatient so I’ll just be coughing,” he said.
