‘I worked at McDonald’s’ — singer B-Red recalls struggle before fame



B-Red, the Nigerian singer, has recounted how he worked at Mcdonald’s in the United States — despite coming from a privileged family.

The singer, born Adebayo Adeleke, is the son of Ademola Adeleke, governor of Osun state. He is also a cousin to Davido, the Afrobeats star.

In a recent chat with HipTV, B-Red said at first, his parents weren’t in support of his music career.

B-Red recalled how he engaged in multiple jobs in America, including working at Mcdonald’s, a US fast food chain.

“Before we started music, my parents did not help us with music for the first two to three years,” he said.

“If I take it back to before I came to America when I told my parents I want to start the music, they said no, we’re not going to take that, go to school.

“I went to America, I have 3 jobs at the same time. I was a cook at my brother’s university, I was working from 6 in the morning to 7 at night.

“At a point, I was working at Mcdonald’s where you sell burgers. I think I was hustling in my own kind of way so, I won’t say everything just came easy.

“I had to work to get to where I am now. Nothing in life is easy, just push through where you are going.

B-Red also recounted how his songs started gaining attention after working as Davido’s hyper man.

“When I first started music, it was a struggle. The first 2 years I started singing, I had to prove myself extra hard. I’ve been singing for like six years professionally right now,” he said.

“I was hyping my cousin Davido all over the world as a hypeman before he comes on stage. So, people already knew me as a hypeman and I had to prove myself extra hard.

“Any single I dropped, people weren’t really interested in the first 2 years. I featured people, drop good songs, and dropped hits. Since then everything has been good.

“I’m not where I want to be now but I’m pushing and I’m also grateful to God that we’re having a good time, we’re doing good, we’re traveling the world and we’re making money.”

B-Red started his music career as a solo artiste in 2013 with the release of ‘Insane Girl’.

He has continued to enjoy fame since then with several hit projects, including collaborations with Davido.

“I know the number of cars that I have sold to people both abroad and in Nigeria, who bought cars for their siblings.

“Why can’t I find a single person in my family to buy me car in this life till I became older? What kind of useless head do I have?
