CDQ at his Pulse TV interview

In his exclusive interview with Pulse TV, rapper CDQ told his remarkable tale of how he had to make sacrifices to fulfill his ambition of being a successful artiste.

CDQ revealed he had to part way with his sneakers and use his school fees to fuel his music ambitions.

"It wasn't really easy though. My first demo I actually recorded I paid the producer with my sneakers. My second record I think I paid with my school fees, it was at that time I lost my dad, 2008, October 25. I had to pay with my school fees and I had to do some petty jobs, so I could gather the money and pay my school fees later" he revealed during the interview.

"That's how deep and passionate I am about music. It wasn't really easy. I am a go-getter" he further said.

CDQ went on to disclose that he had to lay low on his music dream for a while when it started to affect his academics. The rapper studied Law at the Lagos State University.

After graduating and serving, CDQ admitted that he got a job offer from a bank, and on the day he was supposed to resume he changed his mind to pursue music.
