Writer Joey Akan Says The Concept Of A Poor Person Breaking Into The Nigerian Music Stardom Is A Myth.
Nigerian writer and Twitter influencer, Joey Akan doesn’t subscribe to the concept of a poor person breaking into the music stardom as he describes it as a myth.
According to Joey Akan, everyone you see who breaks through and becomes a star either has plenty of money or has someone spending a lot of money on the artist thus, poor and broke artists don’t blow anymore.
He said that he sees people peddling the misconception talent will blow you in this game is a fat lie because the Nigerian music industry will only acknowledge your talent if you have the funding to push that talent.
He also averred that a poor person without a sponsor can’t pay for photoshoots, payola, marketing and PR therefore you pay your way up or get out and get shut out of your dreams.
