Popular radio and TV presenter, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel also known as Nedu Wazobia, has stated that the Nigerian music industry is ”very dark”.
The comedian and actor, stated this while reacting to the sudden demise of budding Nigerian rapper, Mohbad.
In a video which is making the rounds on social media, Nedu said it is when someone is popular that people flock around, but the worse is when the person dies.
According to him, it is after someone passes on that friends and colleagues who failed to celebrate him on his birthday start dropping eulogies.
He said; “This music industry is very very dark. I have been in the industry for over 13 years. Everybody wants to become music artists, they want to be famous and rich, but fame in the industry doesn’t go beyond two years.
“Although there are some artistes that have special grace to reign up to 20 years. Those ones are called legends.
“It’s when you are popular that people will come around you and be celebrating you. But you see the one wey nobody go ever forget na RIP, rest in peace, including those who forgot to post your pictures on your birthday will never forget to post it for RIP. But las las for this live don’t do things for self appraisers, do them because you find fulfilment in doing it.
“Now see our Wonderful brother Mohbad. Did you know that the EP he dropped and nobody downloaded, but after his death the song has become top three on Naija Apple Play. May God rest his soul.”
