I Lost My House, Car, Girlfriend, Began Sleeping On The Floor
Chinko Ekun, the popular Nigerian rapper and singer, has told the startling story of how things went rough for him.
He narrated how things fell apart in his personal life after he became a popular artiste.
The rapper made this revelation at the SummerJam 2022 conference at Pastor Bolaji Idowu‘s Harvester’s Church in Lagos state.
Chinko Ekun, who gained more popularity after releasing a song titled “Able God”, revealed he suffered a major setback in his career when he was signed to the Dek-Niyor Entertainment record label.
He confirmed he had a fallout with his boss at the time which led to him losing his deal with the label. He stated that the label reclaimed the house and cars that were gifted to him.
Additionally, he didn’t have the right to claim some of his projects and also lost his royalties following his disagreement with the label.
Chinko did not stop there, he added that he was also dumped by his girlfriend at the time. The 29-year-old rapper said the heartbreak sent him to a hospital bed.
Speaking further, the former YBNL signee who is currently signed to Dek-Niyor Entertainment revealed that he began to reside with Aloma, a former aide to the renowned musician, Davido.
The rapper stated that he became depressed after he went from ‘flying airplanes’ to ‘squatting on the floor’ with friends.
Chinko Ekun went further to reveal that he began to contemplate suicide several months after his life suffered an intense decline.
“One day I went to Elegushi beach and thought to myself, abi kin be si inu omi ni (perhaps I should jump into the water),” the rapper stated.
He continued, “It was at this moment that I threatened God.”
“I told him that if he doesn’t do something about my condition, it would be his fault should I choose to bow before another God,” Ekun continued.
The ‘Able God‘ crooner went on to reveal that three months afterward, he was able to recover the majority of the asset he had lost.
He has since joined a new record label and continued to release songs.
