Corruption In Nigeria Ruined My Chances Of Becoming A Footballer — Singer Crayon

Written by on August 25, 2023

Mavin artiste, Charles Chibuezechukwu, aka Crayon, has revealed he once had plans of becoming a professional footballer but his dream never came to being.


Crayon, in an interview with a media outlet on Thursday, disclosed that he had gone for a football screening at the National Stadium.


The singer added that he wasn’t selected; saying someone else was picked in his place due to that person’s wealthy background.


“I tried to become a professional footballer but it didn’t work out for me because football in Nigeria is quite dicey.


“There is a lot of corruption. I don’t want to mention names because it might hurt some people. They are big names; top officials.

“At a time, I went for one screening in Surulere, they picked me and they had to swindle me and pick someone else because the person had money and connections.


“So, at that point, I became disappointed. I went home depressed,” he said.
