Sum typa rare ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡ โ€œNahh we ainโ€™t copying no artist or they style fr ๐Ÿคกโ€.. and here we are with Afrobeats now extinct. Ok we have Afropop now ๐Ÿ˜‚. Obviously, record labels only investing in trending sound. So many raw talents and their magical sounds ๐Ÿ˜.. where are they?โ€ฆ

Most Nigerians donโ€™t appreciate hip hop or rap music but somehow listen to foreign musicians. I think they do it better or whatโ€™s the reason hip hop is not trending in Nigeria?

I mean whyโ€™s 9ja rappers and MCโ€™s not many in the industry anymore? Record labels are only looking for that hot banger ๐Ÿ”ฅ.. thereโ€™s not enough room for songs from the soul anymore, we just want to dance!

โ€œAnd if youโ€™re the type that does music purely from your mind then you need to adjust to the tempo and the trending soundโ€. This is a limitation hence, we canโ€™t listen to many genres of music sung by our very own 9ja artists anymore.. bcus everyoneโ€™s gone to do Afropop ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

This is also limitation on the artist imo. Unfortunately, in the 9ja music industry of today, you have to keep adapting to trends to remain relevant. Thatโ€™s tiring and itโ€™s making even A-list artists sounding amateur bcus of what? Trend?

**sound amateur

Honestly, some labels are trying but thereโ€™s just not much done yet. I believe if the same energy put into promotion of Afropop is given to all other genres of music, then we can get a fair share of the industry gains going to several many more talents and music geniuses..

The video is unrelated but ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚.. this is what artists are going through to stay relevant btw.. please we need ORIGINALITY ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ.. give way for new classified sounds ๐Ÿ™. #MUSICBLOOD
