Nigerian singer, Abiola Akinbiyi, professionally known as Bella Shmurda, has bemoaned his lavish lifestyle in the early days of his career.
The singer made this known while speaking in a recent interview where he disclosed how he made bad financial decisions immediately after rising to fame.
According to the singer, he used to live with about ten of his friends who sometimes brought home their girlfriends and were all dependent on him financially.
He said at a point when he had to buy himself a car, he also had to buy two more for his friends.
The singer expressed regrets on lavish lifestyle, promising himself to make better financial decisions.
Speaking about other top artists in the industry, Bella Shmurda said that it was dangerous to imitate the lifestyle of any singer as they are bound to spend based on their earning power.
He, however, spoke about turning a new leaf with his future income while promising to leave behind the days of spending on unwarranted lives.
“I used to have money, i rushed things. I buy things, i later did not need. I use to live with 10boys, and they will carry woman too. At this point, as i am getting new money, i have to think. There was a time, i wanted to buy a car, i bought like three once, because if i want to go out, i would want my boys to go out with me. Me, that came from nothing,” he said.
