Veteran musician, Onyeka Onwenu, has called on female Nigerian musicians to eschew shaking their bum bum and focus on leaving behind long lasting legacies.
In a recent interview with TheNation, the singer said: “Be careful of what you live for posterity. If you can’t give your best, don’t step out because what you recorded is always going to be there for long, so you got to give it the very best.
Center your artistry around something that will last with meaning, not just shaking bumbum and it’s just the women that are always shaking it, the men don’t shake anything.
Women are worth more than shaking their bumbum. Enough of the bumbum. Though, everyone is free to be creative, but just know that yours will not last while the other person with meaningful lyrics will remain evergreen.”
