Not that far back in the past, Zoro, real name Chimaobi Owoh shared a small room in Onitsha with his five siblings, butcher father and restaurateur mother.

These days, the ''Ogene'' singer can be spotted rocking stages across the world and carrying out brand ambassador duties for popular liquor brand, Hero.

Zoro chats with Bounce News

''I was born into poverty. Everything I've know has just been basic. I could have been this person that won't make it in life and still be comfortable (about not making it) because looking at my parents, I'll be like 'how do you expect cow to born elephant'? But I said some people's life changed because of how their parents were, so I said I need to rewrite my parent's story. That's everything I've been about and from 2016 till now, I think I've been able to rewrite their story,'' Zoro told Bounce News in an exclusive chat.

''From 2016 till now my life has changed a lot. I was going to leave the country before I dropped ''Ogene''. I was like if I drop ''Ogene'' and it doesn't work, I'm out of here''

Zoro has since had a mind shift, he's now focused on making the country a better place for himself and other Nigerians after his lucky break with the hit song ''Ogene''.

''I was always this guy who didn't think he could do anything to make the country better, but now I'm all about trying to motivate people to support the movement of a better Nigeria''.
