Nigerian veteran singer, Daddy Showkey has shared a very painful experience about how he had to throw away his pride in order for him to survive.

Daddy Showkey shared the heartbreaking story during an Instagram live session with a fan. According to him, he was involved in an accident after leaving Olu Maintain’s birth party in 2007. After spending almost three years in a hospital in the United States, Showkey was advised by doctors not to sing or dance again.

With a heavy heart, he returned to Nigeria and went to seek assistance from people he considered as friends. Before his accident, he said that he used to give out millions of naira as gifts to his friends because he doesn’t have any value for money. However, these same people turned their backs on him and said he wasn’t going to amount to anything.

Showkey went back to Delta state in 2010 to work for money throwing away his pride despite being one of Nigeria’s finest artistes. After some time he was able to recover and resumed back to making music.
