In an exclusive interview with the Ghanaian award-winning artiste, he stated that he had always loved cars, but his most-loved car got stolen on the day his daughter was born, which inspired him to name her after his most-loved car, a Corolla S.
The artiste, who currently owns a fleet of luxurious cars including a Maserati, said that about ten years ago, he bought his first car, a Geo Prizm and quickly changed to a Corolla S, which was the "hottest cake" in those times, just like his current Maserati.

DJ Azonto's car gets stolen
However, on the day his wife delivered his first daughter, his car was stolen, and he had to pursue the thief to no avail.
When my wife was giving birth, my Corolla S was stolen, this was my first bitter experience. We followed the case for some time and then decided to forget about it. So because of that, I named my daughter Corolla, DJ Azonto stated.
He added that his love for the Benz car brand inspired him to name his second child after. Azonto stated that his children bear the names Corolla and Benz Arthur, and he had already planned a name for his third child.
Some time ago, my wife was in the hospital, and I needed money to take care of her, I called my friend Yeboah for his help, and he loaned me GH¢400. I could not pay on time, I was in the hospital for over a month, and when I could not pay back, he told me that we did not go by the agreement we talked about, so I lost my Benz C400, Azonto stated.
