According to the Benue-born singer, some singers who aren’t talented come into the music industry with blood money or money from drug business “and then make so much noise.”
He also alleged that some musicians are using music as coverup for their drug business.
In his words;
‘I think they are very talented and they are good. However, some of them lack good content in their music and have nothing meaningful in their lyrics.

“Musicians are actually meant to be good ambassadors. There is a lot that has gone into music. There are lots of people who are not really musicians. 


“People who are not really talented come into music and bring money from drugs or ‘blood money’ put it into music and make noise everywhere. Not many know these musicians are actually using music to cover up for their drug businesses.

“That is the major issue for us because those who are consuming the music might not know that and it kind of makes it difficult for talented musicians who are supposed to be heard and are not heard because they cannot afford to promote their music.”
