Am I the only one who believes that Nigeria music is in freefall and has lost the very thing which makes our music distinctively different to other music.
I have just finished watching MTN top 10 Nigerian Videos, I would argue that 7 of the videos showed no Nigerian influence other that the artist might be Nigerian. Number one video was from P-square, wonderful artist, brilliant choreography, but where was the Nigerianism (if there's such a word). Video was not shot in Nigeria, words and dance did not reflect our country.This seems to be the trend in the Nigerian music.
Why is it we want to do what the American are doing?
there's nothing wrong with being original and true to your heritage. My partner is here looking at me, thinking am taking it too far.
The Ghanaians are producing much better music than us, which is sad for our industry.
My mum often says to me in Yoruba to always remember who and where I originate from, this is my advice to all budding musician, as the current crop in my opinion are just short of useless.
we are Nigerian, be proud to be Nigerian.
