Young singer-songwriter, Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, better known as Bella Shmurda has shared the ‘golden’ advice he received from superstar singer, Wizkid in Ghana.
He revealed that Wizkid told him to preserve himself and not jump on every record with any artiste that asks him for a feature no matter how much he’s offered.
It may be recalled that Bella met Wizkid in Ghana in March 24, 2021 and photos surfaced online showing them in the studio and chilling at the beach.
Bella said Wizkid made him realise that his voice is good and he should not be on every song neither should he try to be everywhere at once.
He said that he embraced the advice so much that his team complained and said that he hardly goes out or showcases himself enough.
The Cash App crooner said he wants to preserve himself like Runtown, who went on a music hiatus but is still being mentioned as one of the leading acts till date.

Meanwhile, the artiste recently revealed he begged a law student to help him review the contract for his first record deal.
He was formerly signed to One World Global Records and at the time Bella was still a student who could not afford to hire a lawyer.
According to the musician, he reached out to a 300 level law student to assist him read through the fine print of his record deal, but he did not realise that the guy was clueless about how to handle the matter.
Bella Shmurda revealed that he used to smoke weed with the guy in school and often saw him dressed in the official black and white outfit for law students, so it was based on that relationship that he called him.
He made this known while having a chat with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV’s Rubbin Minds programme.
The CashApp crooner who now owns his label, Dagbana Republik advised upcoming artistes to always read through whatever contract that’s given to them by any music record.
He said it is 2022 and there is a lot of opportunities available for artistes to explore so there is no need for any of them to rush and sign any deal.
