I didn’t sit down to write Legbegbe-Mr Real


Legbegbe’ is undoubtedly one of the most played songs in Nigerian radio stations, night clubs and parties. Unknown to many, the song was inspired in a weird way.

Uchenna Okafor a.k.a Mr Real , who is one of the progenitors of the trending dance has revealed how the song was inspired. He said he was battling with the pangs of hunger when the inspiration hit him.

According to him: ”The journey has not been easy, my first track was produced by Terry G and the video was shot by Akin Alabi, the title of the song was Kakaraka. The truth is that I believed in myself, I never thought for one day that ‘this thing don too tey, make I find another thing do.I didn’t sit down to write Legbegbe, I had gone to buy food down my street, I had my ear phones on and was listening to that beat (a looped beat). The next thing that kept coming to my head was, ‘Oya e fun won legbegbe’.

“So while I was vibing to that song, there was this guy who also came to buy food, so I collected his phone, and I did the recording on his phone and sent it to my phone via WhatsApp. So that fateful day, I went to the studio and i recorded the song, ‘Legbegbe’, he told Pulse TV.
