After making an impression in the church he was urged by his choir master to take his abilities seriously which a young Solid Star didn’t take notice of in the beginning but later came round to. Based in the popular city of Lagos, a young Solid Star was spotted performing in a local talent competition by a record label executive. After the chance meet with the label executives, Solid Star quickly signed up to the label Achievas Entertainment.
