According to them musicians should be creative and focus on issues of socio-economic importance.
They explained that lyrics should not dwell on money, women, alcohol and similar issues but on issues relevant to societal development.
“Music should not be on ‘whine your waist’, a notable musician, Innocent Onyemuwa, also known as Daddy Fresh told NAN. According to him, musicians should make lyrics meaningful to the society.
“Our artists are trying but I have a little problem with their stereotyped lyrics. Everybody is talking about, `whine your waist’.
“Sometimes, there is too much repetition and I’m not okay with that. I want us to be more creative.
“Creativity will give us what we are looking for to stand out internationally and when it comes to nominations for awards,” he said. Onyemuwa, however, hailed Nigerians musicians for efforts in promoting the entertainment industry.
“It gives me the hope that Nigeria will in future be on top because we have got all it takes: good rappers, good singers; we have got our representatives,” he said.
