Hello guys!. Remember Nneka who’s mostly known for her ‘heartbeat’ single. Even though she has Natural Afro hair like Dija, she shouldn’t be mistaken for madam ‘Take kiss’. Truth is even though we love Dija’s personas and do we wish her well in her pursuits, we wish she can do something else outside music. Maybe Modeling or acting because most of us good song lovers don’t like her songs. Forgive this statement but it sounds like she’s shrieking most times and that my dears, is public nuisance. Her collaborations are getting more dumb by the day especially that hilarious one she featured Our dearly beloved Patoranking. Each time her song comes up, we have mental strokes and paralysis.
Ok so back to this Beauty with real names Nneka Egbuna who amazed the world and some few Nigerians with her unique sound which is difficult to categorize. This has seen her becoming a bonafide international star appearing on famous TV shows and performing alongside artist that matter. She moved to Hamburg at 19 to study anthropology. Even though her mum is German and her father is our brother from Warri we don’t know why she hasn’t made it big in Naija but apparently, she’s known abroad and this doesn’t include Cameroon or Ethiopia. We don’t know if it’s because she’s signed to a foreign Label and because Nigerians are not too receptive and because her songs are quite heavy for certain people.
Other artists like Rotimi of 50 cent’s Label who actually has good songs but doesn’t have a strong fan base in his motherland have same issues. Some people will say it’s because D’banj parted ways with Mo’hits (now Marvin Dynasty) that his career crashed. Is it actually true that once you as an artist are not signed to a Naija based Label you might not get the recognition you deserve or is it the kind of Promotion your song or album gets? Is it the quality of the music you sell and the content of your messages that matters or is there more to these things because Jidenna’s Classic Man was huge guys! At a point we were happy to be associated with Him. Kai!! the guy is kukuma fine. See how babes were tripping up and down!.
You guys need to tell us what a good and talented Naija artist must possess to have a successful career home or abroad!
