According to Dr. Daniel, before one’s music is accepted in Nigeria there should be strong promotion
Becca’s husband, Dr. Oluwatobi Saani Daniel, has revealed why Ghanaian artiste failed to wow Nigerian fans during the Menzgold-Zylofon Naija launch concert.
Ghanaian artistes including King Promise, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were not given the needed attention by the Nigerian fans last Friday at the Eko Convention Centre.
However, Ghanaian entertainment pundits have expressed their dissatisfaction over the Nigerians behavior.
But according to Dr. Daniel, in order for one’s music to be accepted and recognized beyond his or her borders, there should be a stronger promotion for that.
He opined that artistes need to work extra hard outside their comfort zone by presenting themselves severally in areas where they want their songs to trend.
Speaking in an interview on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda with the host Sammy Flex, he disclosed that in Nigeria they will only accept a song from an artiste for airplay when that particular musician has landed in their country and has performed some shows to promote their brands.
“Here in Nigeria, musicians from other parts of the world are required to be present physically with their contents before their songs can be played on the airwaves. Musicians must learn to promote their works extensively to gain recognition.
“If other musicians come down to Nigeria with their songs, we would be forced to play their songs. If you don’t come your songs won’t be played.”
Dr. Daniel formerly managed Nigerian singer Ice Prince.
