‘Nigerians will regret not supporting my music’ – Whitemoney


Reality Tv star Hazel Oyeze, better known as Whitemoney, has stated that when he inevitably gains international acceptance, Nigerians will regret not having supported his music career.

This was revealed by the reality TV personality turned musician in a recent interview with Echoo Room.

According to Whitemoney, Grammy Award-winning musician Burna Boy experienced a similar situation. When he rose to fame, Nigerians called him “proud” because he was too expensive for Nigerian concert promoters.

The artist promised that when he gets big internationally, Nigerian event promoters would regret not helping him too.

“Nigerian promoters will regret not supporting my music. Your only prayer should be that I shouldn’t make it in this music industry because if I make it, you all will pay.”

Speaking further, Whitemoney said his genre of music is ‘Kumkum’, and he does not have a rival in the music industry.

He added,
“I’m a king in my lane. For me, nobody rivals my talent. You’re good in your way but me I am the king. That’s why I have my own genre. I don’t do Afrobeats or highlife. My genre is Kumkum.”
The winner of BBNaija Season 6, previously enthusiastic about winning a Grammy, has stated that the American award seems compromised and has diminished in value.
In a recent discussion with content creator Egungun, Whitemoney revealed that he has shifted his focus to the local Headies Awards instead.
He said,
“The way things are going now, Grammy don cast. Make we manage Headies. I’m not sure if I’m still pursuing my desire of winning Grammys. Now I’m pursuing any award that keeps me relevant. Because after what Grammy organisers did to our superstars, Davido and Burna Boy at the last award ceremony, it’s now looking like they are using Nigeria for publicity stunt.

“But never say never. My style of music is unique. If it takes me to the Grammys, no wahala.”
