Zazu crooner Habeeb Okikiola a.k.a ‘Portable’ and up and coming Nduka Mmegwa “Abigmwamama” are working on a song “Hustle” that would be in the market next month.
Abigmwamama, revealed the message in the collaboration with Zazzu was to challenge people to hustle.
“Hustle is saying don’t sit down, go ahead and do something. We need to wake up and do something, we must engage in something meaningful for the good of the country,” he said
Abigmwamama, also a power biker said that the challenges in the music industry for upcoming artist like him were daunting, stressing that there was need for government intervention.
He said that not every artist who ventured into music had money to prosecute the project, adding that it would augur well if the government provided the requisite intervention.
He said that a lot of talents were being wasted, especially in the ghettos, adding that government should get fully involved to add value to the society.
“Talents are being wasted at the grassroots level, you go there and you see a lot of talents both in secular and religion songs being wasted.
“We need them in our society; songs can heal and make people happy.
“A lot of young Nigerians have talents but they are dying, no one to help them, government can create market for artists, our market is low and that is why our artists are suffering.’’
Abigmwamama said he had previously done some works on “pampete and “oworoworo ” – meaning “nothing dey happen” and “everything will be fine.” NAN
