International Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Banji Oladapo, well known as Dbanj in a recent interview have said that music record label owners in Nigeria know nothing about the music business.
The Kokomaster, Dbanj who was one of the panelist discussing the topic, ‘Changing The Game: Artistes As Leaders’ at the 2018 Social Media Week Lagos, explains that one of the challenges confronting the growth of Nigerian Music Industry is that Nigerian artistes lack capacity building.
“Most of the new generation record labels are founded by Yahoo boys. You must understand first, why you are coming into music.
“Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building. It is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label doesn’t know anything about music.” Dbanj said
