According to Kcee,
"I met him at a beer parlour. It was at Ojez in Surulere, I went there to chill with my brother E-money.
"So a guy came on stage, took off his shirt and dazzled, we were impressed, sprayed him money and gave me my card to call me when we were leaving.
"By the time Harrysong came to the house, I had already brought Iyanya from Calabar because I also discovered Iyanya at a bar signing too, so I moved him to Lagos after speaking with his mum.
"We registered Iyanya for the MTN project fame then he went for auditions in Calabar and he was picked.
"I paid for Iyanya's first ever flight to Lagos, it was a virgin Nigeria flight, I remember."
