Singer, Ayoleyi Hanniel Solomon, aka Reekado Banks, has spoken about his investment in farming, property and education.

The 22-year-old, who happened to be the last born in his family disclosed that he is currently building a secondary school saying he embarked on the project partly because of his mother.

The Oluwa Ni crooner said, ” My mum, when she was a lot younger, ran a crèche. If she had the money, I’m sure she would have made it bigger than that. I consider building a school a money-spinning venture. There are many people out there that want to go to school and get education. So, it’s partly about helping people and partly about making money.”

The University of Lagos graduate denied rumour that Mavin, the record label he is with, was exploiting its artistes.

He said, “If Mavin is taking majority of the money, how come I was able to build my mum a house and I’m building a school? I also drive nice cars. It is business, and we knew what we were getting into by signing the contract with Mavin. If I wasn’t comfortable with it, I wouldn’t have signed it.”
