Watch Videos as Naeto C Speaks on Conforming to the AfroPop Sound on Notjustok TV
Naeto C speaks honestly about the different types of fans that he has acquired along the years and how he tends to purposely dilute some of his songs to cater to the demands a set of his fans that love the Afropop genre. This explains why he dropped both the Day 1 project and the Festival album this year. You should listen to the entire interview cause he breaks it down pretty clearly.
This partly answers the question most hip hop lovers have concerning the decline of hip hop music in Nigeria. Most rappers who started as rappers and made it big as rappers are now singing Afropop songs. So the question is, are the rappers being less creative OR are they simply supplying what is being highly demanded as Naeto has just explained?
It’s definitely quite frustrating to fans such as myself who want to see Naeto C in his true essence on songs like Kini Big Deal and 10/10 which both had commercial elements but were still HOT hip hop songs.
Will we continue to see the decline of the hip hop genre from the mainstream in Nigeria? Good news is artists like Naeto C are trying to strike a balance by delivering two types of projects in 2016. Good and insightful interview, you should watch and listen.
