The life of Olawale Ojo – the winner of MTN Project Fame season 6 has been a bittersweet one as he turns a taxi driver.
Top Nigerian writer, Tope Delano sat down with Olawale for an interview where he revealed he has turned a cab driver in order to pay for music studio session as well as pursuing his dreams too.
Olawale, who won a sum of N5M, an SUV and a recording contract, took his new found fame and fortune in strides as he released his debut album titled ‘Almost Famous’ on September 26, 2014 teaming up with established producers as well as artistes like Lil Kesh, Skales and Tiwa Savage.
Although his album featured some of the biggest names in the Nigerian music scene, Olawale isn’t quite yet at the level of some of his predecessors like Chidinma and Iyanya. Still, the lad with incredible vocals, he holds a lot of promise to release something chart-topping in the years to come.
Such a brave young man.

PROJECT FAME WINNER TURNS CAB DRIVER …. a lot of people ave been wondering where fan fav mtn pf winner Olawale has been hiding. The crowd pleasing crooner who held our hearts to ransom during his remarkable pf run disappeared almost as fast as he came into lime light.Majority of us have had to deal with extremely difficult decisions and as God would have it, rose above it all. I met Olawale a couple of weeks ago and at first he did not want to grant the interview but eventually did. I know alot of us have so many questions as to how he ended up here and I promise you, all that was dealt with in the full video. I listened to his latest song #blessing and guys, Olawale is way better than he was in the house. Many may slam him, say all sorts but we should all RESPECT this king for damning the odds and chosing to do what he is doing now to ensure that there is food on the table. Work is work and you have my utmost respect for this. Thank you @olawalesings for being brave enough to share your story and reminding the world about self worth and work.
