‘M.I, Vector fight not healthy for music industry’

Published

Voombalistic Uncle P, National President, Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), says grudges among Nigerian musicians are not healthy for the music industry.

Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) is an umbrella organisation that guide, protect and promote the interests of musicians in Nigeria.

Dr Obi Okwudili Casmir, popularly known as Voombalistic Uncle P, advised musicians to shun grudges to avoid resentment in their relationships.

“Grudges amongst musicians is not healthy for our industry and will only create further resentment in their relationships as musicians and may affect what we represent or present to the public.

“Being emotionally immature when composing or writing your songs means you can not control your emotions or reactions towards your colleagues.

“Having quarrel is a fact of life amongst best of friends but you don’t take it too hard on yourselves because it might graduate to what happened in the case of 2pac and Biggie.

“I advise we settle our differences internally if we have any, rather than taking them to the studio and then streets/homes. That doesn’t project us in good light,” he said.

Nigerian rappers Jude Abaga, popularly known as M.I and Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, aks Vector, are currently expressing grudges against each other in songs which had been trending on social media platforms.

“On 1st of April, 2020, I chatted her up and also called her after sending a few of the photos to her online. My intention was to negotiate with her for few bucks and for me to destroy the photographs.
