I mean when last did you hear songs of other genres like politics, conflict, everyday events, disasters, poverty etc. Ever since the war on boko haram started, have you ever heard a song condemning the sect or a song to give hope to those displaced and affected?

The Americans are even trying with the likes of Rihanna's "American oxygen" and many more. All we hear in today Nigeria is going crazy about big ass, meaningless love, money and women. I just watched lil kesh' "rora" video and I must confess that the music industry is in deep rot.

Times are changing, so are values and morals. It's a matter of anything that sells. Though a very sane person would agree that it's quite annoying, but what is there to do?

I sincerely hope music would still come back to the time when it passed serious messages a across, and where a kid can actually see a music video with his parents in peace.

Because most youths of today are very shallow in their thinking.
It's only women and sex that they think about

Law of Supply states that higher the demand for a particular goods or services, the higher the quantity supplied.





Until you guys make a conscious effort to listening to Trash music, only then will the supply stop

It is as simple as ABC

All of you that are complaining, how many dope Nigerian singers/ rappers do you know or support? Folks don't practise what they preach anymore. Do you know Our own Blaqbones, a rapper that launched his career on Nairaland here? Do you know rappers like Boogey, Eclipse, Luluraps, AQ, Mojeed, Ozzy B (Santi), e.t.c? To you know singers like Aramide, Sir Dauda, Johnny Drille, Tomi Thomas, Tay Iwar, Nonso Amadi, Odunsi, Ric Hassani, Morell, Funbi, Aduke, and several other dope underground artistes? No! They remain underground because you lots don't appreciate nor hype good music. Y'all prefer pangolo music. Stop complaining. We the few little know these good musicians and appreciate them. Follow them on social media to encourage them. You are what you listen to. Music is a taste. Going through your playlist can give a slight insight into your personality.

By the way, I'm a music producer and a singer. I learnt everything all by myself. You can do it too. Visit my blog in my signature below for tutorials to get you started. I'll be dropping a new philosophical song on here before the week runs out, hope you'll support good music then.

That's because that's what most youth enjoy and even the institution is supporting that. ...
Censore board is as useless as anything, a lot of music videos or audio is to be banned buthem what do we have...
The so called future leaders are in tune too

Everyone going one corner���...

Where are the meaningful songs, asa and others
Re: Why Is Music In Nigeria Today All About Love And Women? by Alexgeneration(m): 3:17pm On Nov 27, 2017
The answer to your question is that most Nigerian musicians are so vain, materialistic and intellectually blind. You don't give what you don't have.

That's the question I also asked myself when I watched Trace TV recently. Its soo nauseating and I keep wondering, why do our music lack content? A combination of non-melodious lyrics is made up by half nakid girls whose only thang is to shake their arses.
And some ladies would want us to believe that 21st century women should no longer be viewed as sex objects….....

Even Tupac with all the gangster shiiii had some creative lines in his lyrics.


Creativity has long been dead and buried.

If only gospel artists knew, its only in gospel songs you can hear average lyrics. Hope they develop that.

Youths just go to the studio, take a tablet of weed, hear a beat and the thing go skrrrrra...

Rip creativity.
