Why musicians in Nigeria will keep hustling - Onyeka Nwelue

I will reiterate that there are about 7.9 million ‘singers’ in Nigeria. Having had the great times of my life travelling on the same tour bus with Seun Kuti, attending several concerts of Asa and Nneka in different cities and in different countries, there is a pattern through which they have been able to restructure the capacity of their music business. There is a structure; maybe because they work in countries with structure, but this is mainly because they have been able to structure it themselves. These three artistes have road managers, tour managers, personal managers and booking agents.

They are not greedy enough to keep performance or appearance fees to themselves. Read the rest on lindaikejimusic.com

Nice article. Nigerian artists will get there one day. I don't like the fact that this dude wrote a book titled 'Hip Hop is For Children' though.

99.9% of them are not musicians anyway,they all recite the same BIAFRA NATIONAL ANTHEM ,none of them posses uniqueness .I went to check them out in Houston with friends from different part of the world , none of them has that thing FELLA gave us ,or SHADE OR SEAL ,or SUNNY-ADE you could barely understand what they singing about. Production was poor ,very very disappointed ,you feel like you are in AJEGUNLE after war ,when the IBOS dance as if imitating a monkey by clasping their thigh together ,uncivilized and rowdy production , a lot of work need to be done, even the flavour guy look like a big-dummy lip-singing. Will never see any of those suckers again.
