For wave-making singer, Harrysong (Harrison Tare Okiri), he doesn’t smoke or drink, but gets his inspiration from God to thrill his fans with awesome performance on stage but there are some other artistes who can’t do without booze or drugs before mounting the stage.
Harrysong the Reggae Blues crooner explains why some ?of his colleagues do what they do. “It’s not a plus because I think it’s a limitation. Some are shy and can’t face the crowd but I think it is enough reason to take drugs. I don’t do drugs.
For me, if God has given you a talent, he also empowers you to handle any challenges that may come with it.”?
Born in Warri, Delta State, Harrysong has risen from humble beginnings and today, he is not only a successful musician but also brand ambassador to one of Africa’s biggest telecoms platforms, MTN. The star reveals that he discovered he had a talent for music at a very tender age and ever since, he has never looked back.?
Recounting his success story, Harrysong said: “I was thrown into the world after I lost my parents. I had a lot of influences from the outside but it was my grand mum that moulded me.
“It was not easy at all because you have to face the world all by yourself but with the church background I had from my grand mum, I just knew that there were certain things I must not do. I don’t smoke and I don’t drink, it was just music for me all the way.”?
