Nigeria might be leading the Afrobeats genre in Africa but the fans are not happy.
This is evident in Niyi Akinmolaya’s post on Twitter.
According to Niyi, Nogeria is being exploited by foreign music investors.
Niyi noted that even though the Afrobeats belongs to them, their artists don’t get the reward as much they could.
In her words, she said “Na we get the afrobeat but na oyinbo dey make all the money”.
Niyi’s assertion may not totally be out of place considering their top stars are signatories to foreign record labels;
Burna Boy is working with the Atlantic record label,Davido works with Sony Music Entertainment whiles the RCA Recods, sharing the later with Wizkid.
Niyi may not have a proof to her claim but we have heard the complaints about international record labels and their treatment of artist.
