He recently revealed that Nigerians should learn to separate most hyped albums from the actual best albums.
According to him, no album compares to his own “Yellow” in Africa this year and the best-selling artists have always been the best live performers and dopest overall professionals amongst the lot.
He added that people should stop pointing fingers at the Nigerian politicians because his colleagues are more dangerous and corrupt than our political class.
His words, “No album, not one compares to “Yellow” on the continent this year… Maybe you should start separating “most hyped album” from “best album”
Lol.. show up last quarter, pull a few power moves and declare big numbers… fuck this!!
The best selling artistes have always been the best live! performers and best overall professionals amongst the lot… and for as long as distribution platforms display streams and views publicly artistes will continue to run wild with the need to grow the most numbers.
Stop pointing fingers at the Nigerian Politician… My colleagues are more dangerous and corrupt than our political class.”
