Being young and ambitious is a combination that never fails if you stick by the rules. And the case is no different for G-Worldwide sensation, SugarBoy. After releasing lots of hit songs this year, the Hola Hola singer, thinks that Wizkid is too small a target. He someday hopes to become bigger than the legendary Bob Marley.
In his own words during an interview with Show Time, SugarBoy said:
“It’s been a great year for me; particularly because it’s the year I dropped my album and it’s the year I really got to be known. I’m grateful to my label for that; it’s hard work and with God’s help I’ll become the biggest music artiste in the world; not big like Wizkid but big like the late Bob Marley by God’s grace.”
While we do not wish to burst his bubble, SugarBoy is definitely going to been needing a world of hard work as well as a dint of luck. This is because 2017 has been an iconic year for the Starboy as well having recently beat the likes of Jay-Z, Drake and Cardi B to the Mobo Awards Best International Act gong.
Plus, asides from several international collaborations in the past year, he also recently featured on Young Jeezy‘s “The Life” off the American rapper’s recently released “Pressure” album and alongside Trey Songz.
However, SugarBoy is already aware of this as he acknowledged that the journey won’t be easy, citing WizKid’s journey to fame and wealth.
“The Sugar Boy brand has been growing since 2015; I was unknown before 2014 but since 2015 it’s been a growing brand, it’s not an overnight thing. Sugar Boy is a force to be reckoned with; I’m the future, the same way they saw Wizkid back in the day when Bank W asked people to watch out for him, that’s who I’m right now, by God’s grace I’ll be a music mogul in years to come.”
Do you think SugarBoy is indeed ready for his breakthrough year in 2018 considering the exit of Kiss Daniel from the label? Kindly share your thoughts and opinion in the comments section below.
