Nigerian singer, Iyanya Mbuk, on Wednesday revealed that he begged show organisers to perform at two shows in December 2021.
In a series of tweets, the Kukere crooner recounted how he performed at three shows in December 2021 and got paid for only one.
Iyanya added that in December 2022, the story changed, as he had over 20 shows where he was paid to perform.
Stating that he hadn’t had such a busy December since 2017, the talent show star expressed gratitude to God for the turnaround.
He tweeted, “Last December 2021, I performed at 3 shows. One paid, and I begged to perform at two just to be seen.
“In 2022 December, I wake up every day to alerts for shows. I haven’t had this kind of busy December since 2017. 20+ shows in one month. God, thank you.”
Iyanya also appreciated his fans for streaming his songs, as he promised that 2023 would be a better year for them.
“And to my fans and everyone who streamed my music this year, God bless you. There’s got to be more, and I promise 2023 will be a better year for everyone who has supported me this year. We will definitely have a great 2023,” he tweeted.
Iyanya rose to stardom in 2008 after winning the first edition of the MTN Project Fame singing talent show.
