    There is serious need for education in the Nigerian music industry. Not these bullshit celebrity seminars that keep popping up.

    As we keep seeing, from Brymo/ChocCity, to recent cases of Zeez, and Runtown, artistes (& Labels), still don’t know shit about the business.

    Nigerian artistes think they’re in a video all the time. Labels also get lost in the hype. Mr Too Much Money Records, you’re to blame also.

    Record label don’t know if their artistes are performing paid or unpaid shows? Sorry you’re not a record label.
