“I Think Nigerian Artistes are so Lazy.” Singer Jaggernaut Slams Nigerian Musicians


Nigerian singer, Demilade Egbeolu, popularly known as Juggernaut says Nigerian artistes are lazy and he does not feel challenged by anyone. In an exclusive interview with the Punch,Jaggernaut who is the first artiste signed to Seun Kuti’s Black Hauz Entertainment record label, said that there is no song by a Nigerian artiste one could play in the morning. According to him, the only thing keeping Nigerian music is afro beats.

“I think Nigerian artistes are so lazy. It is sad how lazy the industry stakeholders have become and how people have accepted this music we have. It is sad that you have to be intoxicated or be in another state of mind before you have to feel their music. “I will not call any artiste’s name but can you think of any Nigerian song that you can wake up in the morning and actually play? There are no songs like that, they say it is commercial but what does that mean? The only thing that is keeping Nigerian music is afro beats.

“I am not challenged by them, I am just going to do what I have to do and as time goes on, I know that people would be able to differentiate good music from bad ones. I want to inspire more minds,” he concluded.
