…After his father threatens to disown him if he doesn’t make it in five years

Fast rising music artist, entertainer and word play enthusiast, Okokowa Ogaga, popularly known as Koko Pee is finally set to thrill music fans at the forthcoming Warri mega Fiesta slated for this year’s easter celebrations in Warri.
Koko Pee whose father threatened to disown if he doesn’t make it in five years said studying Engineering in the university has helped him to be able to “calculate” properly in the music industry and it’s not been easy for his parents to accept him as an entertainer.
“Watching your child stray from a career path that was paid so much for, to a path unknown to you is never easy and this was the fate of my parents”.
“My father who’s financially established and an engineer from the rich oil region of the South South, Delta state in particular was left with no option when I started showing interest in music.” Koko Pee tells Vanguard Newspaper.
Although not fully convinced on the sustainability of the industry, his father pressured him into agreeing to a “MAKE IT IN 5YEARS or I LOSE IT” condition .
Recall that after all formalities and initial challenges, things started to fall into position for him in high places last year, after he released a viral and successful single featuring Ushbebe and his current single “No Underrate” featuring Terry Apala, which is no doubt enjoying massive rotation on radio and good reviews on social media. This has indirectly helped to consolidate his buzz in the music scene.
Koko Pee is said to performing alongside the likes of Wizkid, Tekno, Davido and other wave making acts at the Warri mega fiesta holding in Warri on the 1st of April, 2018.
