We No Longer Have Musicians In Nigeria- Daniel Wilson

One of Nigeria’s top singers,
Daniel Wilson who reigned in the 90’s has said, the country no longer have good
musicians and has a matter of fact the songs released these days are ‘rubbish’.
Daniel revealed this in a recent interview saying;
“Music can mean anything to
anybody, but I dare say, I grew up listening to the best Nigeria had to offer,
what I listen to these days break my heart. Times without number I sit down and
ask a couple of young musicians I meet, what they know about music in Nigeria,
which artist did what, and I dare say, 90 percent of the musicians of these
generation lack a proper historical knowledge of the industry, how can you talk
of building a better industry and hope to be celebrated when you don’t even
celebrate those who was there before you,” he said. More below…

He also went on to say…

“As children we danced to greats
like Evi Edna Ogoli, Daniel Wilson, Mike Okri , The great Majek Fashek, Lijadu
Sister, Monomono, Bala Miller, Blackky Inyang. But it’s funny how the
American’s will appreciate our past better than us, Sample and repackage what
was ours and sale to us. A lot of hiphop artists from the Wu tang clan, to Jay
Z have sampled our sounds, not because they want sale in Africa but because our
sound is a sound very pure, genuine and original. Wonder why Wizkid’s Ojuelegba
is the biggest sound to come out of Nigeria in 2015? listen to it again and
tell yourself the truth,” he said.
