In a previous Interview, Octo had mentioned that school was the main reason behind his silence in the music scene.

“Nilianza February, so ndo one of the reasons nimekuwa chini ya maji, kusoma ni ngumu manze, sai inafanya niheshimu wasee wako University. Sai niko Havard Univesity, hizi ni shule nilikuwa naona tu kwa TV, though huko ni ngumu jo si kama place nilikuwa last year huko Pennsylvania. Yaani nilitaka mtoi wangu to understand kuwa unaeza toka Kibera na still ukafika Harvard,” said Octopizzo.
