Why I Performed In My NYSC Uniform – LAX


Singer, Damilola Afolabi, aka LAX, was criticised on the Internet after he performed at Olamide’s concert in December in what looked like a National Youth Service Corps uniform.

Talking with Sunday Scoop, he explained why he turned out that way at the event.

“I had just completed my National Youth Service Corps programme at the time, and I wanted to pay homage to the scheme and Nigeria in my own way. I also wanted to inspire people to know that they can pursue their dreams and still go to school. It is not too good that people always like to dwell on the negatives when reacting to issues. I really didn’t pay attention to anybody who criticised me, and that’s because the people who appreciated and commended me were more. Those were the ones that I paid attention to,” he said.

Reacting to the notion that his career has suffered a decline after he left Starboy Records, LAX said,

“People who are saying that need to go and check the records. I had three big songs that had a lot of views online last year. I travelled to a lot of countries and I enjoyed massive love everywhere that I performed. I will be releasing my debut album this year and I want my fans to watch out for it. People should listen to good music, not thrash.”
