He is a Nigerian and his name is Johnny Drille. His voice and music is heavenly. Just check out his beautiful songs. Why is he not more famous?

Hmmmm Johnny Drille, one of the very best.
Nigerians don't fancy his kind of music because there is no Nudity, Ukwu, Sex,drugs in his music.

There is nothing fair or just about life. That's why very brilliant people graduate from school with high grades and competent brains but they struggle endlessly for years while nincompoops find themselves in great jobs and great wealth.

That's why a brain-dead creature like Buhari can be president in a country like Nigeria with millions of better qualified, more competent and of course more intelligent people.

That's why fine girl with good character and good home training will clock 35 in her father's house without husband, while retired and serving oloshos bag high quality simps Saturday after Saturday.

That's why Naira Marley and Zlatan are far more successful and acclaimed than Johnny Drille or Adekunle Gold.

Na so e be.

Good voice and good vibes, but in the market, dance music and religious music sell.
This is for a nonexistent love market.
Mature men don't take their wives out dancing.
They prefer to club with oloshos that will twerk on them.
Even at private parties, people prefer to dance to fast music. Most couples fight too much to pretend to dance blues or midtempo

A talented singer but in Nigeria, He is under rated. "If she loves me, hallelujah" a good track.

Because Nigerians prefer dance-y, headache-inducing music.

I think it's mostly because his A&R team have not packaged him for the right audience.

Obviously, his type of music is not mainstream, but that does not make his genre unpopular.
