The Nigerian music industry is now been driven by investments from drug barons and Internet fraudsters, veteran singer, ZaakiAzzay, has alleged.
The singer said this in a interview with PremiumTimes. According to him, ”singers who are not really talented, come into the industry with money gotten from drugs or blood money and they just make so much noise.”
He alleged that some musicians are using music as coverup for their drug business. ”I think they are very talented and they are good. However, some of them lack good content in their music and have nothing meaningful in their lyrics. .
Musicians are actually meant to be good ambassadors. There is a lot that has gone into music. There are lots of people who are not really musicians.
People who are not really talented come into music and bring money from drugs or ‘blood money’ put it into music and make noise everywhere. Not many know these musicians are actually using music to cover up for their drug businesses. .
That is the major issue for us because those who are consuming the music might not know that and it kind of makes it difficult for talented musicians who are supposed to be heard and are not heard because they cannot afford to promote their music.”
