In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Skales says he has denied his mom because he was embarrassed.

According to him, growing up with his mom was a tough one as he used to sleep in a shopping complex with his mother.

On his father, his background and his music journey, he said,

“My father left us when I was really young. I do not even know how he looks like.

My mother and I used to sleep in a shopping complex at a time. I am talking about during my primary and secondary school days in Kaduna.

Then, the only hope for me was music. At some point, I told my mother I wanted to work and support her.

I was chased out of school because I did not pay school fees. I had to steal school uniform because mine was bad and I would tell my mother I saved money for it.”

“Also, my mother would go to my friends’ houses to do their laundry, which was embarrassing to me.

I had to deny my mother. I also did not let my friends know where I lived because most of them were children of politicians.” Adding, “When I told my mother I was moving to Lagos, she asked me to finish my university education in Kaduna. But I convinced her I could cope.

From Kaduna to Lagos, I got a free ride and the first place I stayed was Orile (Lagos). I lied to the person that gave me free ride that I would stay with him for a couple of days and it turned to months.

He later started a label with some friends; they knew some people but it was not easy.“

The singer has since redeemed himself to his mom as he bought a house for her late last year.
