Olamide should borrow leave from Tuface, etc —Simon Utsu


Efio-Ita Nyok|27 February 2017 A Cross River-born cerebral social commentator, Simon Utsu, has taken his critical ware to the Nigerian music industry where he has observed that ace musician Olamide is most likely to wade out of relevance for the singular purpose of spinning out hits year in, year out. Utsu aired his mind recently via his social media account, Facebook, where he said: 'Between 2011 and now, superstar Olamide has been churning out an average of 6 hits per year. This seems like a good trend/record but it's dangerous for him- it might lead to what I call "musical burn-out". 'It happened to several musical greats before him. R.Kelly, Akon, Rick Ross etc. When you release several hits year in year out, there's a tendency that people will get tired of your voice/sound and this is likely(usually) to lead to your demise musically', he continued. 'I think he should borrow a leaf from the likes of Tuface/Wizkid who allow us some space(say 2 years) to digest hits and crave fresh ones before they unleash them. 'Truth is, at this pace, Olamide might be no longer relevant(musically) by the time this administration will be winding up(2019). Lol.', he concluded. What do you think of Utsu's opinion? Will Olamide crashland as the present legal tender of Africa's most popular country? Efio-Ita Nyok
