For many people, the path to success has never been a smooth one, as there is always a story before the glory. Most of the celebrities we see and watch on TV today weren't born with a silver spoon, as some of them once struggled before they became famous.

Few minutes later, some of the workers in the company accused him of stealing their guard dog. Before he could speak to defend himself, they had already beaten him and dragged him to Apapa Police Station where he met a policewoman who knew him. The policewoman then ordered the workers to stop beating him, and she kept him away from them.

Few hours later, a of the staff of the company came to the police station to inform the manager that they had already found the missing dog and that it was one of the guards that took it for a walk.

This got Daddy Showkey infuriated to the extent that he swore with his life that he would never work for anybody again. Following this, he ventured into music where he started his unique style of singing called GALALA.
