Prominent On Air Personality, OAP Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, widely recognized as Nedu Wazobia, has voiced his concern over the opacity of the Nigerian music industry.
Nedu made these remarks in response to the unexpected passing of the acclaimed Nigerian musician Mohbad.
As reported by EYEWITNESS9JA NEWS, the up-and-coming singer tragically passed away at 27 on Tuesday.
In a video circulating on social media, Nedu conveyed his observations regarding the Nigerian music scene, stating, ” This music industry is very, very dark. I have been in the industry for over 13 years. Everybody wants to become a music artist; they want to be famous and rich, but fame in the industry doesn’t go beyond two years.
“Although there are some artists that have a special grace to reign up to 20 years. Those ones are called legends.
“It’s when you are popular that people will come around you and be celebrating you. But you see the one wey nobody go ever forget na RIP, rest in peace, including those who forgot to post your pictures on your birthday will never forget to post it for RIP. But las las for this live don’t do things for self appraisers, do them because you find fulfilment in doing it (sic).
“Now see our Wonderful brother Mohbad. Did you know that the EP he dropped and nobody downloaded, but after his death, the song has become top three on Naija Apple Play. May God rest his soul.”
