On-Air-Personality, OAP, and Actress, Omotunde Adebowale, popularly known as Lolo 1, has said that songs of new generation artistists when compared with that of Nigerian music legends, like Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Sunny Ade are meaningless
According to her, 97 percent of songs released today do not pass a message and are not children-friendly.
Speaking to HipTV, she said:
“I am not sure if we are passing any message because if you are looking at the kind of music, what will you say you are buying?
“It is not like everybody talks crap, but 97 percent of it has no meaning. Bangdadadang, what does that mean? It doesn’t have any meaning.
“You know, Wo, it is just play and we are just having fun. It is not like the music of yesteryears where you listen to Ebenezer Obe, Sunny Ade.
“They had depth, even though we have people in this generation that are doing conscious music. Fela was a great advocate. He did a lot of social and impacting music.
“But in this generation, I am not sure.”
