‘Christ Lives In Me,’ Daddy Yankee Quits Music To Evangelize Jesus
Famous reggaeton star Ramón Ayala, aka Daddy Yankee, has officially retired from music.
The Puerto Rican singer and rapper announced this on stage during the final day of his farewell tour, La Meta, in Puerto Rico over the weekend.
He said he now hopes to “evangelize the world” and live for Jesus.
In a video message shared via his Instagram page, ‘The King Of Reggaeton’ said that a part of him felt empty and he had been trying to fill a void in his life for a long time that no one could fill.
In his message, the ‘Despacito’ crooner cited a Bible verse; “I was able to travel the world for years winning many awards, applause and praise, but I realized something that the Bible says, ‘what good is it for a man to gain the whole world if he forfeits his soul?’”
He added: “One story is over and a new story is going to begin, a new beginning.”
Daddy Yankee began his career in 1994 and is regarded as one of the pioneers of the reggaeton genre.
He retired at the age of 46.
Better To Be Egoistic Than To Be Too Humble – Asake On People Taken Him For Granted [VIDEO]
Famous singer Ahmed Ololade, aka Asake, has recalled how some people once took him “for granted” because he was “too humble.”
In a video making the rounds on social media, Asake, while chatting with a group of friends, stated that it is better to be egoistic than to be “too humble,” as he emphasised that excessive humility often brings disrespect.
Speaking from experience, Asake said that when someone is egoistic, people feel the person is inaccessible and place more value on the person.
He said: “To me, humility is like a waste of time. People don’t appreciate it. At the end of the day, life is about your perception. That is how I think. It’s my world.
“I’ve been around people, that I tried to let them say who I am but they didn’t appreciate it. As an artiste, if you come to somewhere, if you’re humble, they will take you for granted. But if you have ego, they feel like you’re not accessible so they will like you more. People would rather see what you’re doing than you showing them humility. So, just do what you need to do.”
“If you are too humble, they will take you for granted”
