KCee, Five Star Music act, whose real name is Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo has given his opinion concerning the Federal Government’s move to stop the production of Nigerian music and videos abroad.
He shared his opinion in an interview with Wotzup ONTV.
Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, had said during a meeting with the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) that the Federal Government will look into ways they can help the local entertainment industry. Part of their plan is to stop the trend whereby contents meant for the Nigerian public is produced abroad and brought into the country for consumption.
Many Nigerian music artistes have shared their views concerning the move. Five Star Music artist, KCee sees it as a move that will prevent the progress of the industry. He gave an instance of how difficult it will be to bring a foreign artiste down to Lagos to shoot a video for a song they did together.
Currently, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is away in London concerning health issues. Nigerians have complained about the prolonged absence of the President whose nature of sickness they are not informed about. The proposed move by the FG is seen by many musicians including Peter of Psquare as a hypocritical one since most government officials prefer overseas when they want to educate their children or get medical attention.
While the President is away in London for treatment, a wing of the President’s political party, All Progressive Congress (APC), has suggested that Peter of Psquare should be arrested for statements he made in reaction to the move by FG to ban foreign produced contents.
No doubt, Kcee also commented on the issue saying if Peter of Psquare is arrested, then Nigerian Musicians will look for the President who is away in London and tell him about the problem.
Kcee wondered, how people can be so evil, he said, people did not bother about them when they were living in Ajegunle, a ghetto in Lagos.
Now that, they’ve made it, the question people ask is “what is your source of income” as people also question him about his brother, E-money’s source of income.
The music had a lot to say, but you can catch up with the refreshing moment in the video below.
