A well wishing Nigerian and an icon has taken to his Twitter account @Uncle_ajao to advise 2020 Big Brother Naija season 5 winner and president of the icons movement, Olamilekan Agbeleshe Laycon
According to the @Uncle_ajao, Laycon should not invest all his money (30 million) in his music just like 2017 BBNaija winner, Efe.
Recall the 2017 winner, Efe according to rumours on social media invested all his money into his music which later did not work out for him.
He further added that Laycon’s record label should be the one doing the spending and not him using his personal money to further his music seen that Rap music is no longer appreciated anymore in the Nigeria.
Read his open letter below;
OPEN LETTER TO OLAMILEKAN AGBELESHE LAYCON!! PLEASE DON’T INVEST YOUR MONEY IN MUSIC ESPECIALLY RAP!!! Laycon is blown already and will not blow more than this. He has gotten money and fame. Look for a lucrative offline business and invest some part of the money in. Thread
Normally, artist move from upcoming to the peak of their career after which anything can happen, but your case is different cos you’re starting your career from the top, your hit was a song from early 2019, permit me to say you’re starting overEfe spent all the 30 Million naira he won on wack songs that couldn’t trend more than 48hrs. Upon featuring Olamide and few other popular Artiste, yet nothing to show for it. I heard Dude is currently dead broke.
You’ll soon be making hits with top artists, you can’t do that with your money just bcos you just won millions, you have a record label, it’s their responsibility, if Fierce Nation can’t sponsor you then they don’t deserve you. I’ll talk to my daddy, we’ll sign you to DMW
The Nigerian music industry is messed up already. Especially for rappers. Rap is dead in Nigeria for all I know. We appreciate foreign rappers to our own. Imagine Olamide, Phyno, Zlatan are now singers and no longer rappers. So Laycon might not go far with rap in Nigeria.Olamilekan, you’re a talented rapper but I personally know you’re not just a rapper but versatile artist. Of all your songs fierce was the most listened to, not because of Reminisce and co but because of the dope “Awa fierce” chorus, give us more of that and less of Senseless
You should be very careful. I over heard you saying you’re going to open a Music Studio. My guy you will go broke o. Most people are also expecting a lot from you and I’m sure you’re gonna disappoint a lot of people cos the expectation on you right now Ehhh
If you misuse this opportunity, people go laf o, the same people wet dey hype you self. From a concerned ICON!! I love you LAYCON
