Money can overshadow how you think - Adeyemi Kendrick
A young Nigerian prince, Adeyemi Kendrick, spoke with Legit.ng on the drama surrounding Mohbad's death and his former record label, Marlian Music.
Adeyemi spoke on how young people suddenly making money can affect them and how they first need to make investment plans in case the money stops coming in.
"The thing money is that when you have it all of a sudden at a very young age, the thing about you and money in that particular time is that it starts to overshadow the way you think, you won’t be able to do some things, that’s why you need to have trusted people around you, people who can lead you right and give you advice. It’s not like you start making money as a young person and the next thing you do is move to Banana Island, start buying cars and other things that don’t add value to your life in a reasonable way. You’re just making money and there should be a clear plan of what you should do at a particular time, an investment plan, how to build your future in case that money stops coming, what are you going to live on? What do you want to survive on?" he said.
Adeyemi also spoke on substance use among young musicians and how their management is to blame. According to him, they need to help their artistes get on track because having talent is not enough.
In his words:
"They need to stay away from using substances. I see the way these people use substances, especially the youths in the music industry, managers need to start doing better because they need the psyche of their artiste to be upright and the more you are substance-induced, the more you derail. Using substances may not affect your talent but it will affect your lifestyle and orientation and when those things become distorted, the talent may no longer be valid despite the fact that you may be good at your craft. So when a young person is making money, there should be a trusted management that would put their life on track in case things go sideways for a bit.”
Mohbad's father reveals why he hurriedly buried singer
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, explained why his late son was hurriedly buried in a 'rough' location.
Recall that Mohbad’s burial site, located beside a cassava farm, had raised a series of complaints from Nigerians who felt it was not befitting for a celebrity.
In a video posted on Instagram by @temilolasobola and spotted by Legit.ng, Mohbad’s father explained that in Yoruba land, such a corpse cannot be kept for long because he died young.
