On-Air-Personality and actress Lolo1 who played the role Adaku in the award winning comedy series Jenifa’s Diary has compared songs by new generation artistes with that of Nigerian music legends, Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Sunny Ade.
According to her, most songs released today are meaningless. She said this while speaking to HipTV, adding that most of the songs do not pass a message and they are not children-friendly. She said, “If you are looking at the content of music , what will you say you are buying? Ninety seven percent of it have no meaning.”
“You hear ’Bagaladan’ ‘skurubababa’ ‘wo’ they do not have any meaning.”‘’It is not like the of the yesteryears where you listen and obey.”
“Even though we have few people doing conscious music, Fela, king Sunny Ade and others did a lot of impactful music but in this generation, I am not sure.”
