Nigerian Afro soul songwriter and singer, Seyi Sodimu who returned to the music scene few weeks ago, after a long hiatus has spoken on the current state of Nigerian music.
While speaking in a recent interview, the “Love Me Jeje” crooner says that, the release of multiple albums in a year won’t make one a successful artiste, but the release of quality songs that will stand the test of time.
According to Seyi, when asked about what he thinks Nigerian musicians are not doing right now, he said;
Nigerian musicians need to understand that churning out almost 10 albums in one year is not the best.
The thing is, these guys feel they are competing with each other in the sense that when this one drops an album, the other party wants to drop his own too. By doing that, they end up singing songs that is not worth the stress and that can’t stand the test of time.
Look at most of the evergreen songs you know, of Paul Play, Sunny Nneji, and the likes of them, if they had rushed like that, they wouldn’t have done a good song. So, for me, its better I take my time to do what I know will make people remember me for long.
Seyi Sodimu recently relocated to Nigeria, released a remix to his evergreen music, “Love Me Jeje” which featured American R&B singer K. Michelle.
