Individuals have complained about the way the music industry is been structured. New artistes keeps coming up yearly and this keeps the competition stiff and the older artistes on their toes.
It has to be banger all through as they can’t afford to slack or put out low quality music. The Demand for music is at an all time high and artistes have to keep dishing out content to appease their fans. “The Higher The Demand, the more you should supply”, that’s the theory.
While most experienced artistes understand this, there are some who actually don’t know their standing in the music industry. They once had the listening ears of fans but due to them releasing songs that are poor in quality and content, inconsistency over the years, they’ve lost fans and followership. But the surprising thing is they still continue to release songs.
Below are the artists?
1. Dammy Krane
Number one on this list is self acclaimed Leader of the street. Surprising isn’t it? Even the reigning leaders of the street Slimcase and Small Doctor dare not refer to themselves as leader of the street. But Dammy Krane went ahead and releases an EP titled Leader of the street. Well, most people don’t even know Dammy Krane released an EP, they don’t even know if he’s still into music. And most times, people still make reference to his case of Credit card theft to address him on Social Media. This year alone, he has nothing less than 5 songs to his credit and not one of this song is a hit. Honestly, it’s high time Dammy Krane should consider quitting making music and venture into a more profitable business.
2. Que Peller:
Que Peller who is currently signed to his brother’s Aquila Records, would be better off as a magician rather than as a musician. One would think with all the financial weight of Shina Peller used in propelling him to stardom, he would surprise his village people and actually achieve success but otherwise is the case here.
From his unveiling in 2015, Que Peller hasn’t achieved any hit and has to be one of those who should be considering quitting music to do something else. Songs with Olamide didn’t even achieve much success and yet Que Peller keeps releasing music. Money going down the drain.
One thing we should always learn in this life is not to allow other people make decisions for us. Skiibi made a stupid mistake in allowing Five Star Music to fake his death and resurrection. That issue sparked outrage from most artistes who criticised them for toying with the issue of someone’s life just to make him “blow”.
After that, did Skiibi blow? Hell, no. He’s still among those people we regard as upcoming artistes. Even in one of his songs(Ah Skiibi) which featured Olamide, Baddo had to chip in this:
Oya, gbera gbera, gbera gbera
Gbera Skiibii, gbera
Oya, gbera gbera, gbere gbera
Them say you no fit blow abi?
After years of unproductivity, He was chipped out of Five Star.
Kcee would been evicted a long time ago if he was signed to Chocolate City. His weakness surfaced when Harrysong left five star label. We all knew quite well that Harrysong has been the one writing all the songs for him. Limpopo, Pull Over, those hits were written by Harrysong.
And after being tired of been a slave for too long, man had to leave to establish his own franchise. And since then, Kcee’s music has been suffering a decline and it’s not a matter of his village people now. Kcee has to go and think of what to do next apart from music. Music is not his calling.
This list would be incomplete without Viktoh. We all know right from time that making music was not the right occupation for Viktoh. But we all kept supporting him anytime he releases his wack songs. We comment “Great song, Viktoh, keep it up!” While we know within our hearts, it’s a wack song.
The case of Viktoh is a mystery though. According to sources, Viktoh was signed first by Olamide because Baddo saw potential in him and he also had this exceptional talent. But why didn’t he show us all this while he was at YBNL? Well, Viktoh should consider quitting music.
There you have it. All time list of people who haven’t showed us their skills and talent well enough to be considered an artiste. These are people who should consider quitting music to look for another job to do.
Who else deserves to be in this list that we’ve not included?
Let’s hear you.
