Is Etcetera a problem? – written by Onyeka Ibeanusi


Many people felt the rude awakening to the presence and existence of singer cum writer Etcetera. I got to know about Etcetera in 2008 when I was still in Uniben. I remember a guitarist friend of mine saying, “Dis guy hold guitar like who no sabi play am.”
Then I heard his songs and saw his videos. The videos were nice at that time and Etcetera was on his way to becoming the male version of Asa. I watched some other videos from him years later but unfortunately, Nigerians hardly patronise his genre of music and Etcetera disappeared.

Now Etcetera is back as a writer and a columnist hitting Nigerian celebrities harder than the US is hitting ISIS and to be candid, the dude is good!

Maybe somebody should have signed Etcetera and helped him reach the height of his music career. Perhaps Dj’s, Vj’s and OAP’s shouldn’t have charged him too much and spare everyone this vocal warfare penned down in computer fonts. Now Etcetera is here to piss everybody off.

I remember when Tiwa Savage described him as ‘coma’ or ‘full stop’ and now Freeze is after him after making very creative and epic statement like, “The light skin radio presenter who does the evening show on that Cool station on the island.’
‘Honey can I turn off the AC before I freeze?”

Charles Novia was enough trouble for Nigerian entertainers and now Etcetera joins him. Having both of them around is like fielding Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi at the same time in the same team.

Maybe Etcetera should have been a rapper, because the punch lines this guy drops is just too much to ignore. Sometimes I imagine him surfing the internet and laughing hard at people’s reactions and comments whenever ever he writes.

To save Nigerian celebs from the hands of this creative terrorist, I think we should call Don Jazzy to sign him with the responsibility of releasing 5 albums in 3 years, maybe we will all have peace by then but since I don’t have that power or the ability to ‘retract’, ‘debunk’ or ‘condemn’ anyone’s opinion, I will just sit back and wait for his next article.
