Nigerian rapper Phyno is truly blessed to have a loving and caring mother who has his back at all times through thick and thin.

He faced opposition from home when he started out with his music. In his own words: “I am happy for how far I have come. My father never wanted me to become an artist because he felt it wasn’t a good profession. But I decided to stick to my guns and I have proved that one can also have a good life with music. Now, people call me to mentor their children and that couldn’t have happened years ago. Nigerian music has gone global and the future looks even brighter.”
