“We Artistes do music to make money, not for popularity” – D’banj says


Singer, D’Banj has said artistes do not only make music to get popular, but also to make money.

D’banj said this on Thursday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria. He said it was only fair for musicians to make money from their efforts.
He said:

A musician is supposed to know how to play good music or collaborate with others to make good music in order to get paid for the services.

“We are not releasing music for it to be on You Tube or some other social media to make us popular. A musician should create room for some other persons to contribute to his music to make it worth the people’s while.
“We are releasing music to make money and to have money to help ourselves and our families, I am not shying away from other genres of music, but you just have to do the one that suits a song. As an entertainer, I have to be versatile in what I do.”
