Popular rapper, Erigga has blasted his southern music colleagues on how they spend heavily to enter the Lagos State music scene.
Ranting on Twitter, the lyricist wrote that he does not understand why artists from his side do more than themselves to break into the Lagos market when artists in Lagos are also trying to expand to other areas in Nigeria.
He then begged them to focus on where they are and expansion to bigger markets will happen in due time.
His words, “Funny how artiste in lagos are trying to expand their brands to the south west and northern part of Nigeria even outside the country but our south south artiste wan die follow lagos market… think out of the box 📦
I know many of the artiste when don cry come give me say dem clean them millions because dem wan break enter the lagos market Oluwa waytin de occur …. do where your power reach when the time come lagos go feel you simple.”
