Popular Nigerian music producer and guitarist, Ifiok Effanga, aka Fiokee, has revealed why many music producers are switching to singing.
He said the trend is because producers are not given enough accolades and monetary benefits.
The producer-turned-singer disclosed this in a recent interview with Hip TV.
Fiokee said, “The reason for producers are switching sides to become singers, I feel and have experienced, is because of not getting the flowers [accolades] they are supposed to get. Sometimes, they dey popular pass money wey dey their accounts.
“As I always say, the government they don’t like this generation because we are too smart. The same goes to artists, they don’t like producers that are wise. Once they see producers trying to step up their games, they become a threat because they know that when you grow, they can’t control you. But it’s not supposed to be that way, as you are growing, I’m supposed to grow with you. But artists when they grow, they leave the producers behind. So, everybody is waking up.”
