Nigerian pop star Danny Young is out to correct a seemingly wrong impression that Wizkid was the youngest artiste to blow in the Nigerian music industry.
The ‘Oju Ti Won’ crooner countered London media personality Shopsydoo who previously said that Wizkid’s success inspired younger artistes to pursue music.
Danny young stated in his write up he blew in Nigeria at age 16 and his success inspired the likes of Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy etc. He added that kids wanted to be like him in 2006 when he was popping with his song playing on Channel O.
A part of his write up goes below.
“We made this song in 2006, it was one of d biggest songs in Africa. I was just 16. The youngest kid Artiste/Producer at Dat time.
“Parents flogged music talents off their kids, but it changed afterwards. There was no social media so we had to travel everywhere we wanted our songs to be aired.
“Then, Radio wouldn’t play u if u aren’t exceptionally good as they played more of western Artistes. But we reached out despite the limitations. We did almost the best dat was available at dat time. Every kid wanted to be like me.”
