- Majek Fashek recently shared some choice words for the younger musicians of today
- He particularly mentioned Olamide, Wizkid and Davido
- The veteran musician said they need to do better as regards their sound
Veteran reggae musician Majek Fashek stunned many when he appeared to criticise the reigning musicians of today in a recent interview.
Majek said the current crop of musicians including Wizkid, Davido and Olamide make good sounds but they need to do better.
“I make sound while all these young musicians make jam, I make good sound but they are always jamming, they don’t make good sound, they just jam.
My song ‘Send down the rain’ was made over thirty years ago, but if you listen to it today, you will realize that the sound will appeal to both the old and equally the young ones because the sound is good and still relevant today, that is something the young musicians don’t have,” he told Hip TV.
He later clarified his statement saying he did not mean to insult or underrate any artist only that he was just giving them a bit of fatherly advice.
“I didn’t mean to insult, underrate, slight or demean any young Nigerian artiste; what I did was to state the obvious. The truth is Wizkid, Olamide, Davido, and many other young Nigerian artistes are doing good music but they just need to improve on their sound for the better; I meant no form of insult,” he told Vanguard.
