His environment shaped him to love Fuji music as it was played more often there. Coming from a poor background, he developed an interest in this kind of music and decided to make his parents proud.
With the support of his parents, family, friends, and well-wishers, he was able to carry on to this day. Although not much is known about Destiny Boy’s parents and family, they are instrumental to the success of the star we have today.
Has Destiny Boy Completed His Formal Education?
Destiny Boy attended his primary and secondary school education in Agege. He attended God Living Praise School Agege. For one who started his career at such a young age, we are not sure if he completed his secondary school education.
However, in 2018, Destiny Boy posted on his social media account a picture where he is dressed up as a student. This picture carries the caption “Education is the Best Legacy! Music and education goes hand in hand (butdeydon’tknow) #small But Mighty#” This goes that he went back to school but we are not aware whether he completed his education.

From there, he performed for Pasuma, a popular Nigerian Fuji artist.
Destiny made Fuji versions of songs by popular artists. His association with artists like 2TBoiz gave him the opportunity to record his cover songs. It was Destiny Boy’s cover of Davido’s “IF” that brought him to the limelight. He released the cover in 2017 and it was loved by all. It got him many fans and also the attention of the famous singer Davido.
After breaking into the limelight, he stopped making covers and started making his own music. His first song is titled “Finally”.

Destiny Boy Earns from Concerts
The singer performs at Small Doctor’s Omo Better Concert, a yearly event that takes place at Agege Stadium, Agege, Lagos State. He also earns from other private and public concerts he performs at.
At the start of his career, he performed for free, but with his height and fame, he gets a good paycheque for every performance. He also organizes concerts in collaboration with other artists and producers.
Endorsements and Investments
Endorsement deals add more money to celebrities’ pockets. Destiny Boy is an upcoming artist whose investments are not known to the public yet. He may also have some endorsement deals that contribute to his net worth, but details about these are not known to the public yet.
Destiny Boy’s Cars
For someone from his kind of background, Destiny boy is not one of Nigeria’s child stars who squander their money on expensive and luxurious items. It is worthy of note that the star has not been spotted with any car of his own not to talk of mansions.
He may have these, but he is keeping them away from the media, and he is doing a very good job there. He prefers a quiet lifestyle and with good advice from his family, he will channel his wealth to more important things and investments.
Who is Destiny Boy’s Girlfriend?
It is not out of place for many to think that Destiny Boy has a girlfriend already. For now, Destiny has not been seen with any girlfriend. Most of the girls he takes shots with are either colleagues or fans. He has not also admitted to having a girlfriend yet. And judging from his background and determination, he is more interested in making it in the music industry than getting involved with any girl for now.
Destiny Boy is a hard worker and he knows what he wants in life. I believe that when he decides to get a girlfriend, it won’t be difficult for him. Right now, he is deeply engrossed in his musical career.
