“I was sitting at the BET on the aisle and we have Beyoncé and her crew coming and she saw me and stood right in front of where I was sitting and she bowed her head. Obviously, I was thinking it wasn’t me and so I was looking behind. Then Ice Prince said that was you and she just shook her head and just walked off. So, when I saw her do this new project with a lot of African artistes, I was like these guys kinda know what is actually happening,” he said.

“I don’t want to conclude that Beyoncé knew me but it is not far from that. The more I get into the industry, they know everything that’s happening. They don’t necessarily speak on it and they don’t let you know they see what’s happening.”
