In another news…

Former member of the popular R&B group, Styl-Plus, Tunde Akinsanmi, has urged the media in Nigeria to promote music genres apart from Afrobeats.

He said the TV and radio stations should not let other genres to die all because they are promoting Afobeats which is the sound that’s currently buzzing both domestically and internationally.

Speaking during an interview, Tunde also appealed to show promoters to not just focus on reigning artistes, but also patronise pioneer artistes who ‘paved the way’.

He said; “I will like to listen to radio and know that there are other genres of music, and not just afrobeats. They should not allow other genres of music to die. I have been all over the world and I have seen how music is streamed on TV and radio.

“They play both new and old songs. Show promoters should not just focus on people that are reigning now. They should also patronise people who paved the way. The more they are patronised, the longer their works and careers are going to last.”

Addressing the belief that veterans are making moves to return to the music front, Tunde said; “People are just waking up. It is only in Nigeria that we call them ‘old cats’. As an artiste grows older, they become vintage.”
