- Co-creator of Zanku dance moves with Zlatan Ibile, Rahman Jago, claimed the Nigerian music industry is the most productive in the creative industry
- Jago who is known for his flamboyant lifestyle said living large is part of show business and a needed prerequisite as fans wants to know how their celebrities live
- The singer noted that only serious musicians will reign longer as he warned that artists who are not creative will be ignored by fans even if they wear the best fashion or ride the best cars
In a brief chat with Legit.ng, Jago claimed in showbiz, it is not improper for musicians to show off. This is the submission by Rahman Jago, one of the prominent figures in the Nigerian music industry.
According to him:
“People need to understand that in show business, it is acceptable for someone to show off. That does not mean that you are flaunting your wealth.”
Rahman Jago, whose real name is Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, further said:
“If you ask fans what they love most about their favourite artistes, some of them will mention, in addition to their songs, their outlooks. The truth is, you cannot separate a famous’ person’s personality from his outward appearance. So If you are in show business, you have to look good, you have to show off. This is not a matter of shakara.”
He, however, pointed out:
“Only serious musicians will last in public limelight; if you are lazy, not productive and not creative, no one will look your way even if you have the best bling. So even as you show off, you need to work harder to satisfy and keep your fans.”

He further spoke on the state of the music industry in Nigeria, claiming that the new generation has injected a lot of dynamism that is transforming the sector for good.
“Presently, there is hardly any creative sector that beats the music industry in terms of productivity. Every player in the industry is competing at the highest level and this has raised the quality of our music,” he pointed out.
According to him:
“Everybody will play his role and hand the baton to the next generation coming, but so far so good, Nigerian artistes are representing the country very well.”
Rahman Jago, better known as co-creator of the Zanku dance, has at least three songs to his credit, including “Ijo Ope.”
“I am always involved in one music project or another,” he affirmed.
