The musician, via a recent live Instagram session with H2G, blamed Nigerians who tagged him a bad influence during his prime for his current reality.
According to him, the citizens dulled his career by making him appear more controversial than he actually was and this prevented companies from approaching him.
He added that everyone painted him bad but he was never bad enough to not be connected to a few brands when he was still active musically.
His words, “Na una dey dull me. EVery time them talk say, TerryG this one Terry g that one. I looked like the baddest guy in Nigeria. Did i kill anybody? No. Now endorsement time, nobody endorse me, time when Terry G dey hot”
