CELEBRITY QUOTE: TAKING NIGERIAN MUSIC FOR GRANTED WAS MY GREATEST MISTAKE--ZAKKY AZZAY

Akinnagbe Akintomide
23 March 2012 | Nollywood HardTalk

The greatest mistake I think I made was taking Nigerian music for granted. I made a mistake because I was on top of my game, too busy with shows.So, I decided to take a break for a while and for the two years break I took, it was like sleeping this night and by the time I wake up the following day, everything has changed.

In Nigeria at that time, Western music dominated, with about 90 per cent while Nigeria was like 10 per cent.

So, I slept and by the time I woke up the next morning, Nigerians have embraced Nigerian music.

It's now 90 per cent of Nigerian music.

When I woke up, I started all over again, trying to make new songs in order to recover.

That's the mistake I made and it won't happen again.

No more break.
