The Nigerian entertainment industry is packed with loads of very “Proud” and Arrogant individuals and this is terribly slowing down the growth of the Industry.
Many of our Artistes falls under this category such that when you see them at a Party or other Location and you see how they behave, you will think being Proud and Arrogant is one of the necessities needed to make it big in the music industry.
1. BURNA BOY
Burna Boy is one of the Artistes that have pride in the Music Industry. He has been labeled a rude & aggressive Musician and his anger has affected his career in the past years.
Sadly, he recently exhibited his anger at a show in Zambia when he kicked a fan on the head while performing. Sometimes ago, he was declared wanted by the Police after he sent some Thugs to beat Mr. 2kay in the Hotel room after performing at a show in Eko Hotel in 2018.
Just as how a footballer who is prone to injury won’t grow, too many Controversies held down Burna Boy’s career in the music industry for so long.
In addition, he was the only Artiste last year that set a regular ticket at 15k when others sold at a lower price.
Many have tagged Starboy Wizkid as a very proud person as you can never find him on Instagram following anyhow or engaging in any post, unlike Davido who follows everyone.
In fact, as it stands today, Wizkid is the most difficult person to feature on a song. Even if you are lucky to get him on a Song, be rest assured he won’t show up for the video shoot. A whole lot of Industry champions have complained about this but not anymore as many already took him for who he is.
Olamide was forced to shoot the video for his song “Kana” without Wizkid and many other issues like this too numerous to be mentioned.
3. KIZZ DANIEL
Kizz Daniel is unarguably one of the best Musicians in Nigeria at the moment but he boasts a lot and pride is one thing that has to quench the fire of so many Top Artiste in the music industry over the years.
Imagine naming his album NO BAD SONGZ, this is apparently another sign of being proud, but guess what the album that came after No Bad Songz Had 80% Bad Songz. This is why it is important for one to be very humble regardless of your position.
Simi is no doubt an exceptional Singer, but she is about the only Nigerian female musician who is proud and isn’t sorry about it. Reports about her bad conduct have been reported by radio presenters who have expressed their disappointments at the singer.
Many said her getting married even worsened the situation. She makes a lot of uneasy statements on social media. She at a time took to her social media page to tell yahoo boys not to buy or listen to her music, adding that, her music will go global regardless. This isn’t an argument, but was this post necessary? No!
