Singer, Danny Young has called out UK based OAP, Adesope for his comment that, Wizkid paved the way for other Nigerian artistes.
Danny Young took to his Instagram handle: @dannyyoungofficial, to blast the OAP, stating that, whem it comes to the history of Nigerian music , it shoukd be said with facts.
“We made this song in 2006, it was one of d biggest songs in Africa. I was just 16. The youngest kid Artiste/Producer at that time. Parents flogged music talents off their kids, but it changed afterwards.
“There was no social media so we had to travel everywhere we wanted our songs to be aired. Channel O was the biggest international cable station and this song remained on No1 spot on the chat for several weeks.
“Then, Radio wouldn’t play you if u aren’t exceptionally good as they played more of western Artistes. But we reached out despite the limitations. We did almost the best that was available at that time.
“Every kid wanted to be like me. Even the person in question wouldn’t say I didn’t inspire him. Besides 2face (African queen) , Dbanj (Oliver twist) and Ice prince (oleku) further established our music internationally.
“Thank God for wizkid and Davido as they have further broken bounds by building on these platforms and we are proud of them. It will not end there as it is like a process.
“There are others coming that will do greater things too, but it is important that we don’t forget by tomorrow what these guys (Wizkid,Davido,Olamide etc) are doing.” he posted.
