Lagos - Singer, Joshua Iniyezo, better known by his stage name SolidStar, has addressed the hate in Nigerian music industry.
The Delta State-born artist noted that a lot of artistes were jealous of each other and don’t support real talent.
On his Instagram page @officialsolidstar, the ‘Baby Jollof’ crooner compared the industry to US President-elect, Donald Trump.
He wrote: “Donald Trump won the US election against all odds, and we were all blinded by the lies, propaganda and hype of the media.The media even blinded themselves bringing out polls and predictions that the probability of Trump winning against Hillary with all his scandals was 30:70. But at the end, he won and shamed everybody.This is the same issues we have in our entertainment industry in Africa, the media have succeeded in blinding the fans from what is real, pure and good, from what real talent and good music is about."
“They hype their family and friends and ignore the ones that don’t text them good morning everyday and form fake friendship with them. I am not about the life of faking or acting a friend in your face and do otherwise behind your back that is why I have little or no friends in the industry cos even the artists are jealous of each other and they don’t support real talents because they don’t want to be exposed." he added.
