Singer Afeez Olagunju, Afeezee, has called on record labels to imbibe the principles of fairness, equity and justice in treating upcoming artistes in the music industry.
In an interview with our correspondent, Afeezee said, “The Nigerian music industry is doing well with so many success stories of artistes rising from grass to grace.
“However, more work still needs to be done in terms of contracts and the legal side of the business.
“Labels must adopt the principles of fairness, equity and justice in treating upcoming artists.
“Upcoming artists should also find time to learn the business side of music creation, not just the music. Also, technologies that connect creatives and help manage day-to-day activities should be developed or adopted.”
Afeezee, who recently released his debut extended play, Humble Beginning, revealed that he was inspired by his own personal struggles.
“My last EP was inspired by my personal and societal struggles. I have been actively writing songs since 2015, but I have had the opportunity to produce my own songs to make songs,” he said.
The six-song EP, which is available on all streaming platforms, “contains great vocals mixed with a variety of instrumentation to keep you entertained and inspired,” added Afeezee.
