“I use my situations and things around me to write my songs. What inspired me is what happens in my life. I actually wrote the song in 2016 but due to some reasons, it was delayed. The song focuses more on my past situations”.

Speaking on how he rebranded to the talented artiste he is today he said;

I was bearing a funny nickname before, but when the CEO of Naira Bet, Otunba Akin Alabi saw me freestyling on stage during YECO seminar, at Eko Hotel, precisely in March 2017, he told me to come to over to The Top Entertainment Studio to record; but on getting there the producers did not like my name so they changed it to Benijamz, since my name is Benjamin.”
