A Nigerian singer has recently taken to his social media page to bare his mind about a radio interview that was granted by an on air personality.
Danny Young took to his Instagram page to post a video accompanied with a long post in which he had expressed his discontent at an OAP identified as Adesope.
Adesope in an interview had come out to say that without Wizkid’s success, no other artiste would have been able to attain the level of recognition and success they now enjoy.
Young had in turn expressed in his post that while he truly did acknowledge the inspiration Wizkid had brought to many in the industry, it would be wrong for Adesope to give him all the credit.
He respectfully called out the radio personality and prayed him to endeavour to give out correct and factual information when talking about the Nigerian music industry.
He said: "We made this song in 2006, it was one of d biggest songs in Africa. I was just 16. The youngest kid Artiste/Producer at Dat time. Parents flogged music talents off their kids, but it changed afterwards. There was no social media so we had to travel everywhere we wanted our songs to be aired. Channel O was the biggest international cable station and this song remained on No1 spot on the chat for several weeks. Then, Radio wouldn’t play u if u aren’t exceptionally good as they played more of western Artistes. But we reached out despite the limitations. We did almost the best dat was available at dat time. Every kid wanted to be like me.. Even the person in question wouldn’t say I didn’t inspire him. Besides 2face (African queen) , Dbanj (Oliva twist) and Ice prince (oleku) further established our music internationally. Thank God for wizkid and Davido as they have further broken bounds by building on these platforms and we are proud of them.. It will not end there as it is like a process. There are others coming that will do greater things too, but it is important that we don't forget by tomorrow what these guys (Wizkid,Davido,Olamide etc) are doing today. It’s like saying Phyno is the originator of Igbo Raps, where will u place Nigga Raw, or Saying Olamide started Yoruba raps when we had lord of Ajasa. let’s always dish out the correct information when it comes to history of the Nigerian music industry. No Disrespect to my big brother AdeShope✊️"
