From all indications, first winner of the popular annual reality show, MTN Project Fame, Inyanya, would be older than sensational pop star, Wizkid, but the former has disclosed that he got inspired by the latter to keep his head high in the music industry and achieved the success he has today.
Wizkid gained fame with his 'Holla At Ur Boy' song, which introduced him to the consciousness of many people. Soon after, he became a household name and started headlining big shows in and outside the country.
For Iyanya, just when many thought he would become a household name in Nigeria after he won the maiden edition of the MTN sponsored music talent show, the Calabar-born singer struggled for few years until luck smiled at him and he burst into fame with his hit track 'Kukere'.
Speaking recently on a TV show, the singer disclosed that Wizkid inspired him in the music industry.
He explained that when he thought of giving up because of the cold reception for his RnB single entitled 'True Love,' which he released after winning the competition, the success Wizkid's 'Holla At Ur Boy' made and the subsequent singles released by the 23-year-old made him to say to himself that if Wizkid could do it, he could, which gave rise to his 'Kukere' hit track.
