NIGERIA MUSIC INDUSTRY- A CAREER NOT A NURSERY SCHOOL

My love for music cannot be over emphasized, its soothes your soul at every point in time...day or night, and i mean global music but who says i can forget music coming from my root as an African...Even the beats of Juju does some magic to my body...Even Shakespeare admits-''If music be the food of love...

I cannot stand and watch the Nigerian scene mess up our heads with so much noise some people theme as music to the ears..Yes, we are Africans and we love the loud beats, we love to jump around listening to music but what about the messages, the poetry, the proverbs...these are what we find with King Sunny Ade, Bright Chimezie, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Lagbaja, Stella Monye and so on...

Recently, the music industry has been flooded with so many children who are meant to be in school, who are meant to be under the close watch of their parents or guardian...it is quite sad that even the media would sit and give them a pass mark on their report card at the end of the year...the media should close its eyes in shame.

Music business globally is a career for the right people, they grow in it, their lyrics, beats, personality, influence and so on..it is not a nursery school where the children do not know their left from right and are being cuddled by their teachers...you must know your A game before starting a career in music, irrespective of any challenges that might confront you...it is time we put a stop to this menace...we have little children who have been influenced beyond normal...every one now sings SEX...very loud without caution or alarm...

You do not sing about sex like we are all naive about it, you sing sex in a sultry way that only the matured balanced mind would be able to interpret the message and not having small grown girls shake their entire eternity before our very eyes...or very vulgar languages...is that a career what laying as a principle...?
