Singer Fik Fameica has weighed in on the much popular version of his hustle before he became a star, stating that he sold second hand clothes at the Owino market.
The “Tonsukuma” singer admits he actually sold second hand clothes for a living before even making any attempt at becoming an artiste but, he hawked them from place to place, to his specific clients but not at the Owino market.
He says it was through that he met producer Frank of JahIive who was one of his clients and bought a lot of clothes form him.
“I used to take clothes to Jahlive in Makindye. It was there that one time I met people freestyling and I asked to try. Frank didn’t believe I was serious but gave me some unfamiliar beat and I failed on it miserably. But then I asked for another and I did well,” he explains.
From then, the singers career picked up, recording “Pistol” that he claims he had recorded for himself but went on to become his first hit.
