The winner of the 2013 MTN Project, Olawale Ayodele Ojo, has revealed why he decided to make ends meet by becoming a cab driver in Lagos State.

Olawale narrating his ordeal on Channels Television’s programme Rubbin Minds stated that despite emerging as the winner of the 6th edition, he ended up becoming a cab driver to overcome depression.

“For a short while, I felt depressed. I had the option of giving someone this car to probably drive for me,” he said.

He also added that he has been in the cab driving business for “Couple of months in Lagos.”

According to Olawale, maintaining stardom is a great challenge. He further noted that he has done everything possible to sustain his fame.

The reality show star, however, regretted that life hit at him hard despite making serious attempts to release an album in 2014 where he featured Lil Kesh, Tiwa Savage and Skales.

“I won an SUV, N5m and a recording contract. Personally, I thought from Project Fame, I was going to blow up like that. That was what everybody expected.

“I put up an album after the show in 2014 and that was part of the contract. I featured Tiwa Savage, Skales and Lil Kesh in the album. I shot two videos.

“Everything just started playing out like that. It got to a stage when life hit me. Things were not working out the way I thought,” he explained.

Olawale’s comments come few days after a video of him went viral on Instagram stating his ordeals after stardom in 2013.

In a short video posted on Instagram, Olawale narrated how he had to attack depression when music was not going the way he wanted.

The reality show star further narrated how he had to choose between selling the car he won after emerging the winner at the Project Fame West Africa in 2013.
