According to Whitemoney, he had his own band and was primarily focused on highlife music prior to his participation in Big Brother Naija.

Big Brother Naija “Shine Ya Eye” winner and singer, Hazel Oyeze Onou, popularly known as Whitemoney, has revealed that he was into music long before participating in the reality show.

The reality TV star disclosed this while appearing on the latest episode of The House Chronicles podcast.

According to Whitemoney, he had already begun his music career and even had his own band prior to his participation in Big Brother Naija.

“I was already into music before [going on the Big Brother Naija reality show]. It is just that I was doing more of highlife. Back in the days, I had a band and everything, and there was no media to really show us out, but I did my thing low-key. I have been in music for long. I got my scholarship as a drummer to go to school.

“When I came out [of Big Brother Naija show], the opportunities that presented themselves were not cooking opportunities. In fact, no cooking brand came to me. For those who are saying, ‘When this one start singing?’ I think they forgot that 99 per cent of the music composed in Big Brother House was done by me.” He said.

A while ago, Whitemoney reacted after a Nigerian journalist, Taiwo Alabi, in an open letter humbly advised him to quit music.

Speaking in an interview with Cool Fm, Whitemoney said he has received tons of hate comments from people who tend to compare him to past Big Brother Naija winners.

He reiterated that, contrary to claims that he’s following a trend by going into music, he had been doing music before he went into Big Brother’s house.
