Not many knew that the journey of Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, the Made Men Music Group (Triple MG) leading act, to Lagos was through Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo , popularly known as KCee. It was this 'Limpopo' crooner who brought the singer his first ticket to Lagos from Calabar, Cross River State.

Iyanya revealed this at his album launch concert for his 4th studio album 'Applaudise' held at the ThisDay Dome in Abuja on Saturday.

At the event, an emotional 'Kukere' crooner spoke as he brought KCee on stage to thank him for the kind gesture some years ago.

It is on record that Iyanya once worked at a local Karaoke bar in Calabar many years ago before partaking in the talent hunt show that launched his music career.

“I really thank my big brother KCee, he was the one that bought me my first ticket to come to Lagos, he helped me with getting the Project Fame ticket back in 2008 as well," Iyanya said at the event.

It could be recalled that, Iyanya won the debut edition of the MTN Project Fame in 2008.
