It seems Striker Entertainment’s rapper Bigtril learnt quite a number of interesting things from his recently concluded Nigeria media tour. As we talk, his fan base in Naija land has broadened especially basing on the fact that he was hosted on different Nigerian radio and TV stations where he promoted his music from.
It’s not long ago since he came back home and as he spoke on UBC TV’s Horizon Vibe show hosted by Calvin Da Entertainer yesterday the 9th of June, the ‘Pretty Girls’ hit maker urged fellow Ugandan artistes to also take a toue to Nigeria like he did.
“I would like to urge every Ugandan artiste to take a tour to Nigeria if you have the resources” Bigtril said while asked to share the experience he had in the country. Well Nigeria’s music industry is by far one of Africa’s vibrant industries that has successful artistes like D’Banj, 2 Face Idibia, P Square, WizKid among others, without forgetting music producers like Don Jazzy.
Well, during the trip, ‘Trizzy One Time’ as he calls himself, was able to shoot his ‘Bad Gyal Ting’ song’s video there and at the same time releasing a collabo song dubbed ‘Faya’ with Seyi Shay one of the leading female stars in Nigeria.
Basing on the good reception Ugandan artistes’ collabos with Nigerians have been receiving, we believe Bigtril’s advice to his fellow Ugandan artistes is inevitable. “There is a lot of professionalism in Nigeria music industry, it is more vibrant and more competitive” Bigtril added.
Talking about this, lack professionalism is one of the things dragging Uganda’s music back but if at Ugandan artistes borrowed a leaf from Nigerians, we would even be in better place than we are.
