“They said 9ice was singing like Babalawo [native doctor] cos he sings in Yoruba.

“The other guy told me: ‘why am I rapping like a buffoon, can’t I see Ruggedman? He said that we should both go back and look for something to do with our lives and be better.

“That was my first major rejection. I will never forget it, even 9ice I’m sure he hasn’t forgotten it.”
