The hustle in the entertainment industry has not been that easy for many who has ventured into it especially the talented and Visionary ones!
In this interview with ‘Jetysblog’, Multiple Award-winning OAP and Rapper, Da ‘Beest’ Saint opens up to us on some of his personal details which of course includes the reason why he hides being his ‘now controversial’ ‘Beest’ mask.
Here what you need to know about him;
“My real name is Okeudo Confidence Ifeanyi, although I did a change of name to Williams Confidence Ifeanyi. I was born on the 11th of October 1995 in FMC Owerri.
I am a 300 level biology student of University of Nigeria Nsukka (Alvan Campus). I was born and bred in owerri but I spent most of my life in Abuja.
I come from a family of 7 and I am an indigene of Ama-Okwe Item in Bende LGA in Abia state. I started presenting in the year 2016 when HIPTV came for Owerri rocks Star Trek.
I joined the crew as a Correspondent and after that with the fun and exposure it gave me I wanted more. I started doing music professionally in the year 2014 but I have been rapping from back in the days 2010.
It all started with the Children’s Day celebrations in church.
I love music and anything related to it.
I have always loved to be in front of the camera or behind a microphone
I have been hosting red carpets and events proper until I got a radio presenting opportunity this year 2018 shortly after I thought I was worthless. I started presenting on the 27th February 2018 and after a month I was deemed the youngest oap in the city/state/country”.
He went on to say;
“I love anything that has to do with entertainment.
I love, eat, breath entertainment. I am a Rapper/Radio & Tv Presenter/Event Manager/Ex-Model. I got motivated to do music because I crave music.
I got motivated to present because I once trusted and gave someone I respected so much my time and energy but when it was time for me to rape what I sow.
He betrayed me and I was devastated but I channeled my depression into ideas.
I went to Megaband 97.3 fm to apply as an IT student but I got employed as a full time staff member. It hasn’t been easy combining music, school and presenting because I am not just a radio presenter.
I am chief male presenter of MobTv (an online tv) that is about to break the industry soon.
Some would say it’s intelligence but I believe I am NOT HUMAN because I think out mind blowing ideas but I don’t like maths LOL.
So I programmed school, music and presenting to be less stressful and I have been succeeding in the entertainment industry as well as passing with wowing results.
It’s no longer news that this young warlock bagged 2 awards within 6 months as a presenter which most people who started the race with him are yet to bag just 1 after years of practice.
See what had to say when he was been asked about his awards
When I received the first one I was confused at first.
I was 3 months old in the radio presenting job as I was nominated for the best entertainment personality 2018 against the likes of Jety Adaugo and etc by the organizers of Imo Icon Awards.
I got massive online votes both on Facebook and Instagram.
At first I just went to the event as a performing act but after my performance I was called back to receive the award as the Best Entertainment Personality of the year 2018 on the 26th of May. I knew God was at work because I don’t joke with my relationship with my God. I faced challenges everywhere.
At the radio station, At the Tv studio, At school, At home, I had no friends at one time because even my best friend left me during my time of challenges.
This is July and I got a call n was invited to Imo Glamour Awards as a special guest.
I went n performed and I went to my seat as the ability awarded the likes of MC YELLOWMOUTH, DENRELE etc.
I was so hyped that I looked at myself from head to toe wondering if this people know what they are saying.
I was called up and was awarded as the Outstanding Radio Presenter 2018.
Like I ran mad because I went alone, no friends or family or loved one. I felt alone but I smiled coz I had God.
I have great plans for the future but now I am a Radio Presenter at MegaBand 97.3 Fm, Tv Presenter at MobTv, Freelance Rapper and Event Planner. I have trekked, I have starved, I have wore old, worn out and torn shirts.
I have struggled n tussle more than some guys my age.
I had the opportunity to get myself into Internet fraud but I love doing what am doing.”
Why this description? Why the mask concept?
My Mask Concept.
I invent the #BEEST character in the year 2016 at my birthday.
My reasons are to reduce fake love from people. Majority of people might love you for just your looks but I preferred hide my face to get that genuine love out of people.
The mask is inscribed BEEST which is pronounced as BEAST.
It means Greatness, Strength and Power.
A beast doesn’t give up or lose hope although I have gotten a lot of critics but majority loves it so I care less.
I am a masked personality and only those who are worthy to see my face will do.
I want to specially thank Jety Adaugo for believing in me although we were once enemies.
