Olawale Ojo, remember him?…the winner of 2013 MTN Project Fame West Africa, is now a cab driver.
This was disclosed after a shocking video showing that he is now cab driver circulated on the internet.
His incredible story was narrated by Tope Delano, a writer, who had an interview with him, despite his initial reluctance.
Ojo told Delano that he decided to take on the cab-driving job in order to raise enough money to fund his studio sessions, as according to him, the entertainment industry is not as easy as generally perceived.
He said he decided not to sell the car he won but chose to convert it into a cab business to hustle.

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.
