I was never appreciated in Nigeria – 2Shotz, now a photographer & Filmmaker in US

“Where has 2shotz been”, I asked, wondering where he went after I heard about 2,5 songs, was it?
He started rapping in 1992, and eventually hooked up with another upcoming artist‚ 2Ply after which they formed the group‚ Foremen in 1999. Foremen later met eLDee of the Trybesmen and signed onto Trybe Records in 2000. Their first album was titled Men at Work and featured hit single, For the Men.
He was a good old traditional rapper 2shotz, often mixing his rap with the igbo dialect. After a few years though, we just lost touch!
The rapper turned Photographer & Filmmaker in the United States of America, doing so much better for himself now, has just come out to say that Nigeria didn’t appreciate him, that was why he left music, and us!
It came as a rude shock to many when it was reported that Nigerian rapper, William Iroha, aka 2shotz, had become a photographer and filmmaker in the United States of America. After that, the last time 2Shotz made headlines was in 2015 for allegedly battering his estranged wife in the US.
When Sunday Scoop sought to know why he left Nigeria, the rapper spoke with so much bitterness. He said, “My contributions to the Nigerian music industry were never publicly acknowledged; so, what is the point of talking about music in Nigeria. Real people don’t go far in Nigeria. I really don’t care about what is going on in that industry anymore. The problem is the individuals.”
Reacting to reports that he has dumped music for photography, he said, “I am now a photographer and filmmaker. This is as much as you can get. I am not interested in attaining stardom again and I don’t care about it.”
