Kolewerk rapper, Olayiwola Kokumo, aka Koker, is doing well in his career at the moment. With hit tracks like Kolewerk ft. Olamide; Do Something, Give Them, Okay, among others, he has been able to generate some buzz in the industry.
Sunday Scoop heard some gists recently which suggested that Koker was no longer having a good relationship with his record company, Chocolate City, and that he had practically left the label. We put a call through to the artiste to hear his side of the story, and he said, “I’ll be dropping a new single soon and I’m also working on an album to be released early next year. The album would be released by Chocolate City because I’m still very much with the label. Does it look like I’m not with them anymore? There is no truth to any rumour whatsoever. My selling point is simply about me being myself.”
Reminiscing on some of the sacrifices he has had to make in the course of his career, Koker said, “Back when I was still a student at the University of Lagos, I used to sell my bed space to pay for studio sessions. I also used to pay to perform at shows.”
