Nigerian rapper Oladipo Emmanuel popularly known as Chinko Ekun has narrated how he lost millions of naira to investment scammers.
The ‘Able God’ crooner, in an exclusive interview with Midweek Entertainment, said the tragic episode changed his outlook on investing.
Chinko Ekun said, “I once fell for an investment scam worth millions of naira, after that I decided my only investment was myself and how I was doing.
“So I saved more but something happened and I had to withdraw my money to save my life and I don’t regret it because as I speak the person is still alive and I’m happy.”
The rapper revealed that he wished he had collaborated more before things went downhill, adding that he plans to touch lives with his music.
He said: “I could have collaborated more or stayed more consistent, but my whole mind was on going to shows to help the label recoup all the money they spent on me.
“He spent a lot on me and I will always be grateful. I plan to break records, revitalize rap music, and touch as many lives as I can. I have my own label now.’
Last Saturday, Chinko Ekune, the pastor of Harvesters International Christian Center, Bolaji Idowu, shared on Instagram a testimony that he was once homeless and broke down after walking out of the record label he was signing to.
