People criticizing me don’t finance my music career – Whitemoney


The reality TV star-turned-singer Hazel Oyeze Onou, popularly known as Whitemoney has fired back at his critics, saying “People criticizing me, even those paid to criticize me don’t feed or fund my musical career.


The former BBNaija ‘AllStars’ contestant made these remarks during an interview with BBC Igbo.

He acknowledged that he has yet to reap rewards from his music endeavors. Elaborating on his music career, Whitemoney mentioned that music streaming has not proven to be a lucrative avenue for him.

Speaking further, he said that he may not have a ‘fine’ voice, but his focus is on delivering meaningful content rather than conforming to conventional standards.

“The truth is singing has not started paying me because I don’t get money from streaming, but I get money from performances. I don’t have the best voice but I have a message and melody. “People criticize me, even those paid to criticize me, what you need to know is that I don’t sing to make you feel fine because you don’t feed or fund my musical career,” he said.
