Hip Hop artiste, Banji Oladapo, popularly known as Dbanj, lambasted record label owners in Nigeria, saying they know nothing about music.
D’banj, who was one of the panellists who discussed the topic, ‘Changing The Game: Artistes As Leaders’ at the 2018 Social Media Week Lagos, added that most Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building.
The Eje Nla crooner said,
“Most of the new generation record labels are founded by Yahoo boys. You must understand first, why are you coming into music.
“Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building. It is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label doesn’t know anything about music.”
D’banj further revealed that he got into the music business due to fear of poverty.
