Ace music producer and musician, Terry G on Sunday said he likes courting controversy to keep him relevant in the new and conventional media.

Displaying two controversial school bells on Rubbin Minds, the Apako master said “controversy sells” and highlighted the fact that he is an “industry where most people form or act up this controversy of a thing.

He however noted that due to man’s nature to make mistakes, his controversial moments are as a result of his mistakes and “brings me loud to people’s mouths too, because apart fro your music, you should be in people’s tongues; every week you should be in the papers” whether for the bad or good reason.

Terry G who reiterated the fact that he is “an entertainer and the craziest musician in the country”, urged people not to “get it twisted” as they will find out “over time that this is is an act”.

Davido’s Skelewu Is Not Music – Waconzy

Nigerian pop singer, Waconzy has emphasized the need for fellow musicians to create music that has meanings and positive messages.

The good looking ‘Celebrate’ crooner, while appearing as guest on ‘Rubbin’ Minds, spoke about his life, the businesses  he is involved with outside the entertainment industry and his music in comparison with other artistes.

Waconzy is most popular for the track ‘Celebrate’, and when asked about his view on being tagged a “one hit wonder”, he replied, “everybody has his mouth and you can say whatever you want to say…when there is no news then it’s bad news but it’s wrong when you say I am a one hit wonder because I’ve got so many hit songs”.

He went on to list several songs he had recorded as hit songs including his recently recorded collaboration with American singer ‘Truth Hurts’. He claimed: “a lot of times I have got this challenge of knowing which song I’m going to perform on stage”.

The Port-Harcourt raised artiste went further to declare himself as “Super Man” in an industry that has many artistes with similar lyrics. This was in response to a question about how he distinguishes himself among other artistes.

He claimed that his songs had good lyrical content and would live after him. “I don’t want to do my music because I wanna make all the money out of my music. I can as well make money from my company. My music must be there even when I’m gone.”

He further said: “I don’t believe in all these stuff these little children do these days. They do songs they don’t have meaning, they just wanna make noise, this is bull sh*t you know.”

With Ebuka probing further into the identity of the little children he considers as noise makers, Waconzy responded by mentioning Olamide, Timaya, Davido among some of the artistes who make hit songs but do not make music.

He advised artistes to embrace hiring song writers if they could not do the job themselves.

The interview wasn’t all about condemnation of his colleagues though as he commended artistes like Tiwa Savage, Waje, Bez, Tuface Idibia He stated that their music contained good lyrics and would remain evergreen.
