In a recent interview with media personality Adesope on his Afrobeats Podcast, the pair revealed how they suffered early in their careers and had to bunk with friends while pursuing success in Lagos.

“We squatted with K-Switch in 2016. I’m not playing. 2017 nothing was popping. It was 2018, we were still trying to push and then we made a record in 2019 with King Perry. I think we were squatting somewhere then.”

During their struggle, Ajebo Hustlers reported being advised by friends to consider abandoning music owing to the hardships they experienced.

“That time we were squatting because the music was not working and you now have friends that are telling you, omo, thus music is not working, you sure say you try enter street.”

They also said that their first breakthrough song, ‘Barawo,’ was inspired by the big tune ‘Killing Dem,’ by Burna Boy and Zlatan.

“After we made the record we were very excited and we thought it would be great to have Zlatan on the song because it was inspired by the beat of ‘Killing Dem’ “.

They also recounted their joy when they learned Olamide had shared their song and how that moment catapulted them to greater prominence.

Ajebo Hustlers have continued offering their music, which has become popular among fans since their mainstream debut.
