He said:

“A lot of people don’t know but I was on Project Fame in 2013. I did not make top 10 not to talk of winning. But for me, it was like the beginning of everything for all these. I know when I was evicted that night, something was born in me. For the first time in my life, I feel like a loser. I feel like I wasn’t worth anything. That night, I made a decision that I’m going to become a great person, a great musician, a great artiste. So, it was from then that I started doing music professionally.”

In 2015, Johnny Drille gained popularity with the release of his chart-topping single ‘Wait For Me’ while signed with Mavin Records under the mentorship of Don Jazzy.
