In an interview with Punch, the rapper said that his switch from music had positive impacts in all areas of his life.

“I realised that with the path that my music was taking me, I wouldn’t have time for my family and they are more important,” he said.

“Also I didn’t want to raise my children in the environment that I was in at the time; I didn’t want to subject them to some challenges. The business side of music for me wasn’t making sense anymore.”

Eldee also said, “I realized that it was not something that was sustainable; it was not something I could do for the next 20 years; it was something that had to end at some point, the other businesses I was doing outside of music was making more money for me at the time

“I didn’t want to be that guy that people would post his story online that he needed money to treat himself. I am glad I made the decision when I did; I am in a much better place mentally, physically and financially.”

Eldee once made a tweet about how his song ‘I am a big boy’ contributed to the rise in fraud among youths in Nigeria.

When asked if he regretted ever producing the song, he said he had no regrets but would do things differently if he could.
