He later went solo but way back put his music career on hold to venture into haulage business and politics.

In the 2015 general election Tetuila, who hails from Oro in Kwara State contested for a seat in the State House of Assembly but was defeated at the primary of his party, the All Progressive Congress.

The rap artiste told Punch that politics has set him back spectacularly and he is waiting for Gov. Fatah Ahmed to fulfill his promise of giving him appointment.

“I lost a lot of money which I cannot estimate but the experience that I got is immeasurable.

“The last time I saw Governor Ahmed, he told me that his administration still had two years. So, I believe that he would still do something. I have not recovered the money I lost when I ventured into politics but I am not crying over that because I am a man.”

He also told the paper that his music hiatus was over after 11 years as he is set to release a new song titled: ‘This Girl”.

“Some people have told me that it sounds good while some others have told me to work harder but that is life for you. I am working on a new song, ‘This Girl’, and it would be released this month. Every song that turns into a hit has been destined by God.”
