Nigerian singer D’banj popularly known as “Kokomaster” has revealed that most of the new generation record labels are founded by “Yahoo boys”.
D’banj made this statement while speaking at the ongoing social media week.
According to him most of the new generation record labels are founded by Yahoo boys, and it is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label doesn’t know anything about music.
Here’s what he said;
Most of the new generation record labels are founded by Yahoo boys. You must understand first, why are you coming into music. Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building. It is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label doesn’t know anything about music.”
D’banj who spoke on the topic: “Changing the Game: Artistes are leaders”, further said that fame might not bring wealth but thinking out of the box will.
“The fear of being poor made me to think out of the box to create wealth for myself and remain relevant. “Fame will not guarantee you money; fame will not give you wealth, but it can give you what you need if you channel it properly. “Channelling your fame properly to create wealth is another advantage that stands you out,” he said.
