This statement is actually funny, coming from the ex-Chocolate City Records member Jesse Jagz.Â He recently paid HiphopWorld a visit to speak his album and current state of music in Nigeria.
Below are excerpts to the revealing interview and what he think about the Nigerian music industry:
Your top three Nigerian artistes right nowâ€¦
My top three artistes in Nigeria is me, me and me. No one works harder than me. I would like to see a lot of my colleagues step up their music. This is not a Kendrick thing. You donâ€™t need Jesus to tell you that Nigerian music is unintelligent. Even Goats can dance to our music. Can Jesse Jagz make Nigeria a better place for Wizkid? Can Wizkid do same too? Let adults do better and let kids party. We need to leave something better for the coming generation.
Do you accept money for features?
I donâ€™t take money for features especially features I really want to do. My team however can decide if itâ€™s business. I donâ€™t take money and I donâ€™t give it for features.
Whatâ€™s your opinion of the industry right now.
I donâ€™t think itâ€™s an industry yet. We are shooting ourselves in the foot by calling it an industry. We know itâ€™s not an industry we just ran out of names to call it. Can PMAN be PMAN. Can COSON be COSON? Letâ€™s not have just PSquare collecting checks from COSON. Let upcoming acts be able to collect checks too. I canâ€™t be in a room with a 50 year old man saying Nigeria is bad. What are you doing? Can the adults stand up for the truth?
