The singer explained that he grew up in Surulere, a middle class area with crime tendencies.

He noted that this was the reason why if he had not gone into music he would have ended up

As such, Wizzy reinforced that music went beyond being just a hubby for him but an escape plan to avoid the life of crime which is why he doesn’t ‘joke’ with it.

Music was more than a hobby for me, more than a talent,” he says. “It was my escape. I was in the hood. It was either [music] or turn to crime. That’s why I don’t joke with music,” he said.
