Every local, juju, or traditional, afro and Fuji Musicians/Artistes are with proves jazz men who are in other words fortified by these traditional power, dine and wine with those in charge as guardians/custodians (priests).
You know why? It’s because they love, cherish, adore and respect so much traditions and custom and of cause, don’t tell me that you don’t know that when a man believes so much and respect his tradition, he’ll do everything to protect and gain immensely from it.
Hence, you see King Sunny Ade, Oliver DeCoque (late), Chief Osita Osadebe, Sir Shina Peters, Fela Anikulapo Kuti & Sons, Dr Victor Owaifo, Sir Victor Olaiya, Chief Bright Chinezie, Ednar Okoli, Christy Essien Ibekwe, Christ Okotie, Felix Liberty, Mike Okri, Yinka Ayefele, Chief Aruna Ishola and Son, Chief Ayinde Marshal K1 de Ultimate, King (Alhaji) Saheed Oshupa (Obanla 1), Alhaji Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, Barrister Wasiu Ayinde, Ayinla Omowura, Kayode Fashola, Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti. Onyeka Onwenu, Innocent 2Baba Idibia, Eedris Abdul Kareem, Corbams Asuquo, etc are those Artistes/Musicians who have made great impacts, laid down “evergreen” legacies, epic Singers, Legends, and icons, famous and wealthier than you can ever imagine all through music.
They were too traditional to be deceived by any particular religion, that has become one of the major reasons for the global crisis and terrorism.
But, have you ever asked why these great people of Nigeria/Africa have been able to make it this far in spite of all odds, government harassment and numerous arrests whenever they pour out their minds in fight against our (Nigeria) very bad and evil Idiotic and greedy politicians/and Leaders, who have almost succeeded in sucking this once great a Nation (Giants if Africa) dry, thereby ruining it.?
Despite all these and so many challenges they encounter in Nigeria (as a result of our government negligence towards the music/entertainment industry unlike western countries especially America), they still scale through, they came, they saw, and, they conquered as they never gave up, irrespective of the govt negligence and harassments/illegal arrests.
YOU KNOW WHY?
It is because they were very brave and courageous men, knowing that if a man is courageous enough and fears no man, he’ll be able to always stand on his words knowing they’re truths. If you’re brave and courageous enough, in a nutshell, all men will be same and equal to you and you would always want them to be well treated as such and not with disdains and otherwise.
So, they were using their music/songs to change Nigeria/Africa and the world at large and these bad Leaders (who can still be found in our current government, but thank God at least we still have hope for a very long time in the country on PMB & few of his cabinet members to help restore our lost hope, at least to help clear our doubts that for once we can trust on our Leaders and Govt to making this country a “Giant of Africa” again). Because they know when you truly believe in something, you should gain something and protection from it (even though, some are too scary and of because too evilish that whatever you think you got from believing and worshipping these great traditions boomerang, some will call them…some say they have gods they worship. Abeg nor be me write this one o…smiles)
They know no man can kill or suffer them permanently, except it is divine. Self beliefs!
Have you listened to #ThisIsNigeria (a song just released by our own Falz)? OmG!!! You’re missing real big, if your answer is “NO”! That is a very good example of the good songs I’m talking about. A song that adresses every areas of life – especially the state of the Nation. Even P. Diddy had to post it on his instagram page and as well promised to promote it massively on Revolt Tv! What more can I say, #Nsido? See screenshot below 👇
These Iconic and Legendary Musicians/Artistes I call Saviours of Nigeria Music Industry. They’re/were Heroes/Heroines of music.
But, I think some of our new generation of Musicians/Artistes are also trying and even harder/better/smarter and which has helped pushed Nigeria Music Industry to second spot in the world.
Thanks to the likes of (randomly) Lagbaja, Innocent 2Face Idibia, Corbams Asuquo, Alhaji Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, King Saheed Osupa, Psquare, D’banj BangaLee, Sound Sultan, Don Jazzy, Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti, Dagrin, Davido Adeleke, Wizkid Ayo Balogun, Olamide Baddo, M.I Abaga, Jesse Jags, Eedris Abdulkareem, Ice Prince Zamani, Patoranking Nnaemeka, Phynofino, Adekunle Gold, Reekado Banks, Tiwa Savage, Asa, Sean Tizzle, Oritse Femi, Sunny Nneji, etc.
Today, Nigeria is second in the world after America. This feat is collectively achieved by the aforementioned Artistes/Musicians through good songs/music and not shits like some wack Artistes who also claim to be good artistes and stars sing.
I guess, I have written more than expected to, but I just need few seconds from you to read this simple messages I intend passing through this article is to simply try to sing good music, that’s if you must sing. With good music with inspirational and motivational messages the general public and the younger generation especially.
Songs that can change man’s minds poor/greedy mentalities.
Songs that campaign against bad governances, religion and ethnic crisis/wars.
Songs that give hopes to the hopeless.
Songs that heal!!!
We are very tired of songs with negative messages and vulgar languages. Songs I can not (even as an Entertainment person) play where my children are or in the presence of my Pastor or church members, so they don’t start seeing me as a bad person through the kinda music I listen to.
At a time like this (in Nigeria), all what we all should be listening to is something that inspires, motivates and addresses the bad leadership/governance in this once a “Giant of Africa” of ours. Songs that change us positively with better influence and not the other way round, mbok, #Nsido?
Enough of all these pangolo (noisy music with no sense) shits! With good music, who says you can’t make it big and even very BIG?
2Baba Idibia, with good music till date (plus his other good attributes that are also of great help).
Cobhams, Oritse Femi, Sound Sultan, Dagrin (late), Timi Dakolo, Kiss Daniel, Adekunle Gold, etc have all made it very big by singing good music. So, why can’t you make it with good music.
Thank you so much for your time with #KingJoseph
(omo Iya Geebu Alata)…but please, I need your help with the title, I didn’t know the suitable one for this piece.
