Majekodunmi Fasheke, a Nigerian veteran reggae music maestro well known by his stage name as ‘Majek Fashek’ has advised young Nigerian musicians on the quality and sound of their songs.
Majek Fashek in a recent interview with HIPTV where he claimed there is a difference between the quatlity of sound and music he makes and that of artistes of nowadays said he makes good sound but the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Olamide and others don’t make good sound, they just jam.
“I make sound while all these young musicians make jam, I make good sound but they are always jamming, they don’t make good sound, they just jam. My song ‘Send down the rain’ was made over thirty years ago, but if you listen to it today, you will realize that the sound will appeal to both the old and equally the young ones because the sound is good and still relevant today, that is something the young musicians don’t have.”
He also said his was a simple advice and wasn’t meant to underrate or slight young artistes, but a fatherly encouragement to improve on their craft by doing good sounds that will remain evergreen.
“I didn’t mean to insult, underrate, slight or demean any young Nigerian artiste; what I did was to state the obvious. The truth is Wizkid, Olamide, Davido, and many other young Nigerian artistes are doing good music but they just need to improve on their sound for the better; I meant no form of insult”, he said.
