Up Comers Should Be Given A Voice- Orezi

Nigerian singer Esegine Allen, popularly known as Orezi, is sad over poor treatment of budding artistes in Nigeria.

He told pressmen on Thursday that “I feel younger artistes should be given more opportunities and media presence.

”I watch television a lot and I struggle to see new artistes on screen. If you are not popular, it is always hard to penetrate the industry,” he said.

Orezi further extended his complaint to other countries like the US, which he said, allows only widely known stars like Rihanna and Jay-Z enjoy the spotlight.

His words: “Even across the world, younger musicians are always struggling. When I visited America recently, most of the songs I was hearing were from the established faces.

Does that mean new artistes are not coming up? A growing industry should encourage the younger ones more because they are the future.

The older ones cannot be there forever, as they will get old and leave the scene whether they like it or not.

“When I unveil my record company next year, I plan to sign up fresh talents. It will be my way of giving back to the society.”
