Lagos - Omatshola Itseli, popularly known as 'Tee Mac', a former President of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), on Tuesday said that plans were on to establish a music institution in Lagos.
Itseli said in Lagos that the institution would afford upcoming artists the opportunity to have in-depth training in their area of core competence.
"Music is all about education and it has been noticed that every musician play the same kind of music. The fact that everybody wants to be a superstar has caused all musicians to play all manners of music that makes no sense to the audience. It is, therefore, important for institution to be set up to train artists on the right way of doing the business," Itseli said.
According to him, sanctions would be meted out to artists who play music that are not in accordance with the guidelines of the association.
Itseli suggested that the content of music be checked before it would be available to the public.
He said that the poor content of most music was borne out of laziness of musicians who just wants to get the job done within a week.
"In the 70’s, most musicians spent close to three months in the studio trying to get a perfect job done. Musicians of nowadays want to spend a week to get the job done," he said.
