Nigerian Hip Hop act, Magnito, has claimed that most successful female artistes in the country are being managed by their boyfriends.
The rapper noted that it is a new trend in the music industry, but fans are not aware because the female entertainers keep their relationships private.
The ‘Canada’ crooner made the revelation during an episode of Terms and Conditions podcast which elicited mixed reactions on social media
Magnito said, “Most of the successful female artistes you see, the person managing them is their boyfriend. They might not put it in the public. But most of them… Call any name.”
Meanwhile, in other news…
Fast-rising Nigerian singer Spyro, has dispeled misconceptions about him being a newcomer, as he claimed he is not a newbie in the music industry.
He revealed that he worked with Tiwa S@vage on a song as far back as 2010 when he was still a rapper known as “Freeze.”
The ‘who’s Your Guy’ crooner went on to recount how he also collaborated with the late Sound Sultan in 2014.
He wrote; “It is funny how a lot of pple think I am a new cat *lol I have been here way before most of your favs… but as the Bible says 4 “the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
Spyro shared a clip and art cover of his throwback songs, with the caption “that was me rapping right after Tiwa in the 2nd slide when my name was “FREEZE” my plan then was to take over from DAGREEN and that was 2010 ,I doubt @tiwasavage can even remember that day but look at God ,he brought time back for me with the same @tiwasavage #WOW and then I transitioned to spyrophreeze and recorded more songs..
Recorded my first collaboration 2014 with the late sound sultan and been grinding since then till GOD picked my call this year … So when you see me put GOD on my head ,just know say e get why …my eyes have seen it all but he MADE A WAY just when I was about to give it all UP.”
