According to him, he intended to be a football player but eventually abandoned his ambition to focus on music.

In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, Nigeria, the ‘Terminator’ singer revealed this.

He stated that he preferred music money over football money because musical performances do not have an age limit like athletics.

King Promise said, “I thought I was going to be a footballer. I played as a midfielder. Put me anywhere in the middle. I was playing football in school until I took music seriously towards the end of my university degree programme. I blew up in my last year in uni so I forgot this sport [football].

“Music regardless is a lifetime, you know. Music money is lifetime money. No matter how old you are, you can still perform. I still listen to music of people who are probably dead but football is a short-span career. But it’s crazy money though. I’m not going to lie.”
