he won a music talent hunt competition, which also produced Omawumi as runner-up.
He recently revealed that he got inspired by his ‘music teacher’, Cohbams Asuquo, a visually impaired multiple award-winning music producer in Nigeria.
Dakolo disclosed that Cohbams taught him the art of song writing and music tricks.
"This man right here is my brother and friend. Spent time talking about song writing tips and tricks. God bless you really good," he said.
The singer’s hit single, ‘Iyawo Mi’, was produced by Cohbams.
Cohbams is one of the respected music producers in Africa, who has worked with top artistes in the continent.
He is happily married Ojuolape Veronica, who he wedded in 2010. They already have a son from the union.
